We really like Cocolito's. The quality of food is very good and the owner is both friendly and helpful. But for some reason the kitchen is very slow. So we tend to go there early and expect it to take a while. The fish tacos are superb.

I've eaten at Cocolito's several times and continue to be impressed. It is not the best Mexican food I've had, but much better than many, especially Los Hermanos. The atmosphere and service are fantastic. I can't quite give it an excellent rating since I've had better Mexican, but it's one of the best choices for the area.

For my taste, Cocolito's is the best Mexican food restaurant in Utah Valley--great food, prices and service. The owner-operators are very friendly and conscientious.

We have been to Cocolito's several times. Casual dining experience. They are working on hiring more people to cut down on the wait times. Wait time isn't bad but sometimes it gets real busy on the weekends and then they get over loaded. I get the Chicken Chimi each time I go, but they have a big variety of options... More

I really enjoy eating at Cocolito's. The chips and salsa they first serve you is delicious. The wait may be a little long for your actual food, but it is worth it because the food is wonderful! The atmosphere of the restaurant is fun and you feel as if you just walked into an out doors restaurant in Mexico. I... More

My husband and I were happy to discover Cocolito's, a Mexican restaurant located in the Harmon's shopping complex in North East Orem. From the outside, we were not expecting much, but upon entering we found a large, cheerfully decorated restaurant. Someone took the time to make the interior seem like the courtyard of a small Mexican town, complete with storefronts... More

over the past year, I've gone here three times. The last time on 8-27. The food was ok when it finally came to the table. The service is highly unsatisfactory. The last time our server disappeared. Drinks weren't refilled. We has to ask another server for the check. She said she would find our server. After another 20 minutes, we... More

Hidden in a strip-mall next to the Harmons Grocery store, this is one of our favorite choices for Mexican. The food is delicious, right from the start with the chips and salsa. Service is usually pretty good but can be a little erratic (like the time we walked in, and waited 5 minutes for someone to seat us--no one eating,... More

Servce good. Food mediocre. Not as good as Mi Ranchito or Los Hermanos and in the same genre/food market. Good lunch specials.
