Coba Cocina was built by the same local people (Greer Companies) who have built and own many Cheddar's restaurants. Cheddar's is a wonderful place to dine and offers good value for the money.The Greer's have done their best to build a restaurant that has "Latin American-inspired food in a Las Vegas atmosphere" and that offers good value. For the most part,they succeed, as the architecture is definitely unique.The exterior is unlike any other restaurant in Lexington and is a nice change of pace from your typical "box" restaurant. The interior design is also very interesting,but the choice of cool-tone colors makes it seem a little cold for my taste. While the large cylindrical Jellyfish tank is awe inspiring,I personally would prefer they fill it with the types of fish they feature in their Cheddar's aquariums.
Six of us had lunch. The entree prices were all $9.00 or less. Everyone enjoyed their dishes. The one thing everyone agreed on was that the portions were too small for six hungry guys. My fish tacos were very good,but the rice and bean side dishes were just average or below. Also,they bring out chips and salsa,but the portions of the latter were too small for six people. We had to ask for more.
Our server,Neno,was great. She was very friendly and efficient. Overall, I recommend Coba's and will go back for dinner...once the crowds thin out from being a new restaurant.
