Perfect little hole in the wall with authentic Mexican cuisine. Cute, colorful little dining room. Very attentive service and homemade food. Great spot!

You may pass this restaurant up if you don't know it's there. It's a cute little Mexican restaurant, very reasonably priced. They also offer complementary cinnamon sugar Banana-filled flautas for dessert. We took 12 of us there to eat, and we filled up half of their café. The staff was so nice and very kind.

Very colorful decor. Plenty of meat in the burritos and nice and moist. Flour tortillas tasted homemade. Highly recommend this restaurant. Complimentary dessert was a nice surprise and delicious. Service was also very good.

Having lived in Texas for 20 years, I missed my TexMex way up here in upstate NY. I went to Raul's which if delicious but not TexMex. I needed my cheesy enchilada goodness fix. I found this little gem on my way to Hannafords. So happy I tried it. Very authentic TexMex. Yummy. I only wish they'd open for breakfast... More

My first visit here was last Saturday, with my daughter. the restaurant is small but nicely decorated. I had a chimichanga plate which I enjoyed, and the salsa on the initial chips and salsa was a bit spicy the way I like it. My daughter had a shrimp in bacon dish that she loved. Dessert comes with the meal, and... More

The place doesn't look like much, but they really know how to cook. Don't judge a book my its' cover, since this place is tiny and right next to the road. My wife and I were blown away by how good the food was, and couldn't finish it all. Cant' wait to go back!

As we pulled in the parking lot and there were no cars, I was nervous about what was in-store. Especially since it was 6pm on a Saturday. Based on the reviews, we decided to try it. We should have trusted our instincts. The food was average, at best, the hard tacos were mush from laying in the dish grease. The... More

We had a pleasant dinner at Cosina Mexicana. The place is small and nothing fancy but food is solid, portions are generous, and prices reasonable. Service was great. We tried the Guacamole, Enchiladas Suizas, Steak, and Quesadillas and all were very good. I was told that they have a larger sister Restaurant in the area but did not get a... More

This gem is hands down my favorite restaurant in the area. I can't wait to try out their original Resraurant in Hudson falls soon that serves you a shot of tequila after dinner. The restaurant is tiny, and doesn't look impressive from the outside, but inside, you're met with vibrancy on the walls and flavor in the food like you... More
