“Filthy”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

Went there for margaritas and bacon wrapped shrimp. Waiter was rude and condescending, restrooms were disgusting. Nothing to make me ever want to return.

“Brand New Look”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

The remodel & new menu are excellent! The place looks much fresher & more inviting. The servers are friendly & knowledgable. Food is always tasty, but they have added new sandwiches & non-mexican fare, which is good.

“Still bad”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

We have lived in the neighborhood for nine years and about once a year we go to see if its any better. We went to check out the new menu and magaritas. They now charge for chips and really bad salsa. The new margaritas were light on tequila and heavy on ice. Even the standard margarita which was always good has gone down hill. Bad service and bland food. I'm done giving it a chance. It is taking up prime real estate in the neighborhood and needs to go.

“Great Location but In General Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

Cooper-Young is always fun but there is better Mexican food in Memphis. Their tex-mex is really good but it is not blow-away great. I have lots of friends who have worked there and enjoyed working there. Their white cheese dip however is one of my favorite I have ever eaten so I would recommend it just for that. They also make really good Bacon-wrapped Shrimp so if that's your thing - go.
