This seems like a popular restaurant; lots of customers but we were accommodated right away. Complimentary chips & salsa tasted fresh, very good. Margarita was ordinary, on the lighter side. I ordered Mixed Fajita (beef & chicken) while my husband had the Shrimp one. Generous portions; shrimps were big, too; looked like prawns, actually. We both enjoyed our dinner. Carlos... More

We stopped in on a whim and will be back! We were served quickly, the food was fresh, and the margaritas were smooth.

Very good Mexican food. Friendly, good service that is very pleasing and very helpful staff. The restaurant has classic and some original spins on Tex-Mex and Mexican dishes that make this wonderful quaint eatery. Cocina de Carlos is definitely on my return list.

Cocina de Carlos wasn't bad but considering we've tried Mexican food at dozens of places across North America, this meal was by comparison entirely ordinary. We started with the guacamole dip which was tasty but with far too many onions. Next was the enchilada plate (our usual) and the Texas fajitas (steak, chicken and shrimp. The enchiladas weren't accompanied by... More

Our waiter was fantastic and we never went without anything we needed-- refills, more chips and salsa, napkins, more tortillas, etc. He was very attentive and prompt. Food came out very quickly and we weren't sitting and waiting around. Large portions and the pineapple dishes are a MUST TRY! Very high quality and lots of flavor. Guacamole is also large... More

First time here. Service wasn't slow but more laid back. Our server gave us time to look over the menu and after ordering we had time to enjoy our margarita and chips. The pineapple dish was so different that I had to take a chance and it was great.

Cocina de Carlos is a great local family oriented Mexican Restaurant. They have a good menu selection at decent prices. The lunch buffet is a big hit! The selection is great, the food quality is good, and the items are always cooked fresh - not left to sit out for hours. The prices - even for a family - are... More

My wife & I were enjoying the area and looking for something quick for lunch. We tried this pizza bar down the road but they weren't serving food yet so we stumbled upon this place and we're very glad we did! We both tried something different and were not disappointed one bit. Great food, awesome service, plus they serve Pepsi... More

The food was good and, as somebody already said, fresh. However, it has not been the best Mexican restaurant I have been to. I can't say the food was awful---because it was not---but just not to our usual taste. Very, very crowded.

You can't go wrong here! Locally owned, fresh Mexican fare! Vegan options as well. I'm not a huge fan of buffets, but their lunch buffet is fabulous! Check them out!
