I really like the flavors and food at COA, but the quantites are a bit small and the price a bit high, $14 for a burrito and a little rice and beans is a bit excessive. I would still recommend COA, especially if you like the daily special, for $9-10 its good.

This is a very small Mexican eatery. Always great service, and always a smiling face. The menu is not large, but the food is fresh and excellent. Prices are very reasonable. Their chips and salsa are awesome!

Had heard about COA from my co-workers who visit every single Tuesday.. no joke, it's their weekly thing, every single week of the entire year. Two locations, Mount Vernon and LaConner WA.. seriously folks, I never believed a plate of taquitos could be life changing good.. it's THAT good! They are on a bed of a salad of perfection. And...

I’ve frequently eaten here, and have never been disappointed. We are warmly greeted and seated. The food is what I would call gourmet Mexican, but no words describe how wonderful it tastes. I like to dine lighter than most Mexican cheesy food, so I can easily pick something to fit my taste. There greens are fresh and crisp with wonderful... More

Stopped here for lunch on our way up to our road-trip honeymoon in Canada. The parking was a little weird, but it was nice and quiet inside. My coffee cup stayed full, and the food was really good. I don't actually like Mexican food, but my husband loves it (which is why we went). Very happy, will definitely be back!

Service was great, food was great. Just bring your ear plugs because it's so loud at lunch time you can't hear yourself think. Tall ceilings with no acoustic absorbing material made a great experience not very fun. My wife and I couldn't hold a conversation without yelling. I highly recommend the food and service but advise you go off peak... More

My husband and I recently ordered takeout from COA on our way to Anacortes. The burritos we got (vegetarian) were ok, but the guacamole and chips were AMAZING! Worth it for the guacamole alone!

Quite improved over my first visit about 2 yrs ago. Generous portions, just right spicing, quick ( not fast) service and cheerful help. Lots of parking. Not much atmosphere, where we sat on the left, all dinners visible to each other. Not my favorite scheme but did not alter food taste. A few draft beers available but no dark, a... More

My wife and I visited COA Mexican Eatery in Mt. Vernon for the first time. The restaurant was quite full and lively for a Thursday night. Staff were also very friendly and inviting. We had the fish tacos and the molcajete. As other reviewers have said the ingredients were fresh. Fish tacos came with two good size pieces of cod.... More
