“Take it out back!”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

We love going to Cora's for the "Best Damn Nachos in Texas" and the "Nacho Opry"! All served up out back with ice cold longneck s to boot! Picnic tables with large umbrellas on the outside area looking in. A play area for the kiddos all fenced in. Under the covered area are more tables that face the stage where they have live music! Great singers like Mario Flores and the soda creek band!
Go out on a night with live music! We have to admit have never made it to the inside restaurant! But there is one there!

“Disappointment”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Have been planning on trying out this restaurant for some time. Stopped by today, strange set up, couldn't figure out if there was another entrance (turns out the dining area is semi outdoors). Was totally ignored by a couple of staff even though we were the only customers there!! Turned around and left. Will not go back.

“Not What it Used to Be”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Ordered the "Supreme" nachos and the Cora's Special to go. What a joke. The nachos weren't supreme at all; very thin on toppings, and where there were full toppings, it was only in the center of the platter. When we asked about this, we got attitude. Seems to be a common complaint - rude, surly management.

We made a mistake of not checking our Cora's Special to go. Nearly all chips with just a small spoonful of the topping.

You fooled us, you won't fool us again. The real Cora would be ashamed.

“Great Nachos and Enchiladas”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

My family and I went on a Saturday night at 7:30 and this place was packed! I'm talking a 15 minute wait. The nachos are excellent! Now let me say, that these are not normal nachos. It is not a mound of chips covered in fixings. These nachos are laid out in a single layer and then covered with american cheese (see pics). They are delicious, and also come with diced onions and jalapenos. The enchiladas were also great, I recommend going with the cheese enchiladas. Service was fine, nothing to write home about. If you are on your way home and come across this place established in 1932, it is definitely worth a try. Enjoy!

“Just need one bad experiance”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Went in to dine with several friends, Owner was very rude to our friends and expected us to back her up on her rude comments. Food was like leather, poor quality steaks. Music was good. Nachos are a joke, over rated and Cora would not approve of a mere doz commercial chips with dash of cheap greasy cheese. Sadly Coras is a ripe off.
