I visited this week with family and we were seated right away. I had the skirt steak and it was delicious. The seasoning was not overly done and not spicy at all.

I went to Cocula's restaurant fora lunch date with friends. The Gucamole was exceptional and the chips were very fresh. This restaurant has some of the best Mexican drinks around. This is a must try.

The margaritas are really good! They don't skimp on the tequila. Guacamole is really good. I had the combo taco, enchilada and tostada. Food was good. Chips and salsa are good too.

Wide range of mexican dishes. Fast and friendly service. AlPastor tacos are delicious. Large seating area, easy parking lot with lots of spaces.

Still a good place for Mexican food. Service is spotty. Even though it doesn't seem as good as it used to I still do enjoy this place for lunch. Never been there for dinner.

I have never had a bad meal or a bad margarita there. I have eaten there very many times in the last 16 1/2 years and will continue to do so. I do think the wait staff ladies need improving, they are not too friendly.
