“Nothing special...”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Stopped here with friends last night. The food was nothing special. Soup was non-descript. Enchilada, boring. Chips and salsa, so-so. Presentation was below average. Prices were high for what you got. Service was excellent! Good job, Mario! I think Pepe's or Down On The Border is a better choice.

“Nothing special.”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

We dined at Cozymel's on a Friday evening recently. The menu featured some variations of taco and fajitas not typically found on Mexican menus. We had a queso appetizer that appeared to be nothing more than ball park nacho cheese sauce with a little pico de gallo on top for color. The portion size was generous. I was able to custom order the fish in my taco 5 different ways which I liked; unfortunately the tacos were rather soggy and not really appetizing because the shells were laying on the bottom of the plate. The avocado given was paper thin. The rice served was tasteless and bland. The service was fine, but very hurried. We only had about 5 bites of our appetizer when the food arrived. The restaurant was chopped up into little rooms and really noisy. It felt like another big chain restaurant.

“Decent Mexican food in western suburbs of Chicago”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Cozymels is an above average Mexican restaurant in the western suburbs. The food selection is very typical of most mexican restaurants and their service is good. This restaurant consistently provides some of the fastest food service of any restaurant we have been to, so if you are tight on time Cozymels can get you in and out very quickly. They do not, however, try to rush you. Most dinners are in the $10-$14 dollar range and they also have a lunch menu which obviously has smaller portions and lower costs ($8-$13 range). They have a good beer selection and also do a good job with their specialty drinks.

“Vegetarian? Not So Much...”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

There was only one vegetarian option on the menu, but the waitress suggested we ask for a grilled veggie-bean-rice plate that wasn't on the menu, and it was okay.
