Delicious food, not so great service

Recently went to Cocina Real for lunch on a Saturday. I noticed there was a "Help Wanted" sign in the window, but since there didn't seem to be many people in the restaurant, I thought we'd be okay. I was mistaken. Service was so slow!!! I don't think we had the same waiter/waitress twice. My... read more

Dined with hubby at the bar. It wasn't busy so the bartender was very attentive to us. My fajita came sizzling and the food was fresh. We ordered guacamole and the server made it right before us and let us pick our ingredients. I thought that was pretty neat. My margarita was Perfect! Would dine there again.

Stopped by here because the girls had been here before and liked it. Bad idea. had the chille rellenos, molle, nachos and chips. food was flavorless, and cold. Had margaritas, average to poor, the girls had mixed drinks. what a surprise when we got the bill. Mixed drinks are outrageously priced. we won't be back for food or drinks, and... More

We found this little spot after visiting a church in the area. The food is so good here and the service was great. We've been back a few times for the enchiladas and chips with guac.

I've been to Cocina Real numerous times. On my last visit I was sorely disappointed. I even asked the server if there was new management and he didn't know telling me he was a recent hire. The food had changed and for the worse. I hated the salsa. The red sauce is horrible. I overheard other customers with complaints. The... More

We both had the combo plate with 3 choices. Both their shreaded chicken and shreaded beef are very good. PLeant of good food at a... More

The guacamole was bright with citrus but in a very good way in my opinion. I had chilli rellenos de Cameron or something to that effect. Shrimp were rubber bands, chilli was bitter with seeds and a bit slimy. Sauce everywhere, but mysteriously no flavor. Wife had some shrimp and scallop special. Shrimp also rubber bands, scallops had gone bad.... More

The food here was amazing!! I'm not usually a guacamole fan, but the table-side fresh made guacamole changed my mind! So fresh and tasted amazing!! Entree's are more than enough for one meal, and even had some left over for a second meal. I will definitely be back!!

A few years ago, this was a nice place at a decent price. We've been there every 6 months or so, and each time it's a little worse than the time before. Most recently was today - the tableside service of guacamole was okay, but very strong in salt and lime. We ordered our supper and were surprised to see... More

Table side guacamole was very flavorful and well prepared. The service was great, very attentive and they refilled drinks quickly. I had the lunch fajita special, it was tasty and not too salty. The vegetables were fresh in the dishes we ordered. Great Mexican restaurant. Wait staff and chef were really friendly!
