“Miss this place --Thank me later”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

If this is the only place that is open --it will do. In desperate need of a remodel. Food is expensive and average. If you are 70 or younger; you will be the youngest person in the building. I would not go back. We had better meals every other time in Carlsbad.

“Open late”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

You probably won't go to Koko's because it is fancy, you'll go because it is open late. It's a real flashback to the 1950s or early 1960s. The drinks are fine, the food is okay, but that's not the point. Carsbad isn't a late night sort of town and Koko's is open.

“In need of renovations.....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Very dimly lit and booths are entirely too small. Bathrooms need to be remodeled , one stall for each, come on ! And why could I smell urine outside the mens bathrooms while waiting for the ladies room !?
Food was just okay, probably won't visit again
Sorry :(
