An excellent local place

Having lived in Manhattan this may have been our favorite restaurant. The menu is eclectic and most of it is quite good. If you are really hungry have the Cox Bros burrito. Enjoy. Arrive early as it can get busy.

Coco Bolos is a great place to eat, but present manager, Larry (?), needs to attend charm school. We had reservations for 12 at 6:30 and our table wasn't ready. No problem some of our party were yet to arrive. Ten minutes later we're all ready to be seated and still no table. At 7:00 I expressed need to be... More

Unique menu, plenty of options for all to choose from, including kids. Great drink specials. I have never had the same thing twice, and I have never been disappointed!

I enjoy eating at Coco Bolos when in Manhattan but they usually have a wait. I was glad to see the enclosed, heated patio to increase seating capacity. We didn't have to wait to be seated. The server was friendly and efficient. The food was great. Next time I want to try the train wreck.

I have loved CoCo Bolo's since they opened! Yes, it can be crowded, yes, it can be noisy (and sometimes a little BBQ 'smoky'! (Aggieville parking can be tight! Hint: Park in one of the free city lots and stroll the shops). The food is great and innovative. A nice heated outdoor area has doubled the space and shortened the... More

Great place to eat. I don't live in Manhattan any more but I visit and the last time I went, it was as good as it ever was. The food is good and the service is too. Bring an appetite.

We visited here several times before but the last time we ate here the food was subpar. It used to be a lot better for whatever reason the quality has declined.

It took a really long time to get our food, and the restaurant wasn't that busy.The food wasn't good. Most of it arrived cold or room temperature. One person couldn't even eat theirs because it tasted bad. It does have a nice atmosphere, but I wouldn't recommend it.

Our first date was at Coco Bolos nearly 13 years ago. It was amazing then, still amazing now. Service is quick and attentive. All staff members took drink orders, refills, and checked in on us. It seemed like the staff works as a team. The food is such a treat. I had the Carne Asada. Perfectly cooked steak that has... More
