From the reviews I expected to be floored. I wasn't. The service was great. Presentation was great. Food was very average, possibly sub-par. The tortillas were not good. The steak was barely seasoned. Even the salsa was bland. Not authentic by any stretch.

I really wanted to love this place because it was within walking distance. Also, I'm a vegetarian and the place offers a nice selection of veggie entrees. I had read some good reviews here so my husband and I decided to try it, along with my sister. All of us are Mexican food fans. The service was just "okay." Not... More

After seeing all the great photos of food on SMASH Toledo and reading the good reviews I figured this place was a lock for a great meal. The food was OK but the service was terrible. The waitress that was assigned to our table was so bad another waitress came over and started taking our order. Watching the first waitress... More

I travel all over the world and have been to Mexico many times ... so I know what I speak of. Cocina de Carlos is the best Mexican food I have had outside of Mexico ... and that includes Mexican Restaurants in Texas and California. The food is fresh and expertly prepared. The restaurant is very vegetarian friendly and caters... More

5 of us visited today and had the lunch buffet. Fresh food was added the entire time we were dining. Love the shredded chicken and the beef fajita's. The server, hostess and owner were very friendly and checked on us often. Clean and bright atmosphere! Left full ready for an afternoon siesta

This is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants. The décor is clean and updated. The chicken mango enchiladas are fantastic. They have gluten-free options and many unique dishes. Lunch buffet is offered. Free wifi and friendly service.

I recommend the Spicy Mango Fajitas or the Shrimp Cozumel. This place has the most craveable Mexican food in the area! ( And the Texas Margaritas are good too!)

Overall, The food at Cocina de Carlos was very good. The owner of this business ran a place called El Patron Fajita Bar that was across the street in an old Wendy's building. That location was in a terrible physical location, so they rebranded and moved 2000 yards away. Service was a bit scattered and spotty. Waited more than 5... More

In a area known for good Mexican restaurants, Cocina de Carlos is the best. If you like burritos with a bunch of cheese poured over the top this is not your restaurant. I love Mexican food and have tried just about every restaurant in northwest Ohio. Lots of meals I never tried before. Place attractive and tastefully decorated. Owner takes... More

Cocina de Carlos is a must-visit if you're craving real, authentic Mexican cuisine. Northwest Ohio has tons of Tex-Mex options (some better than others), but a true dining experience like you'd find south of the border is hard to find around here. Thankfully, Cocina de Carlos is here to satisfy your urge for 100% agave tequila, scratch-made margaritas (not made... More
