New management?

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... read more

Decided to go back to Cocina Real for their 2 for 1 Margarita's on Sunday. We sat at the bar and service was fair. There was no full time bartender but service was still fair. 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!

I have been to Casina Real a number of times and Love the Loco Burrito! Shrimp is Always cooked to perfection. We have had many other selections from the menu and have enjoyed them all, (tableside Guacamole is a bit overpriced). Good Mojito's & Margaritas.

We were in the neighborhood and decided to stop in for drinks and dinner. We had been here about a year ago and remembered the food as being fair to good. We were pleased that we happened in during happy hour, two for one house margaritas which were quite good. Their chips and salsa are pretty good, we have had... More

My husband and I ordered the House Chimichangas. They were good, but could have had a little more flavor. The fried ice cream was delicious. We enjoyed the cozy atmosphere. The service was alright. We might go back next time we are in town.
