“Cannot Beat This Local Restaurant”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

This restaurant is a very good one with a wide variety of items on the menu. It is one of the most, if not the most, popular restaurants in Pelham. I know of people who routinely drive 15 or 20 or more miles one way to eat there. There is a more "glamorous" (meaning big money Tex Mex) and a more authentic Mexican restaurant in town, but Cozumel Grill makes you feel like part of the community. The glitzy one does not especially appeal to me, but I also really like the authentic one, even if it is small. Cozumel Grill has plenty of room and the people and atmosphere are very warm and welcoming. You cannot go wrong eating at this restaurant. Try their Wednesday night two for one basic dishes.

“Great Mexican”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We always try to fit in at least three visits when we visit our daughter in this area. Texas Margaritas to die for, and the food is also good to absorb it. Unlimited chips and dips but leave room for some great Mexican food served by friendly staff. Freshly prepared food and lots of it at very modest prices

“True Mexican”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

These folks know how to do Mexican. I've never had a dish I did not enjoy. The whole family can eat for a very reasonable amount.

“Easily the best Mexican fare south of Birmingham”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This traditional Mexican restaurant has many of the same items as others around town only the food is of higher quality. The steak is actual steak the fish in the fish tacos is tasty, both are uncommon traits for most other Mexican fare. As several others have mentioned they also have great margaritas and a good selection of Mexican beers.
