Love the food, especially mole sauce. This visit, the chicken burrito and shrimp fajitas. Food is fresh, tasty, not too spicy- although the salsa has a kick, staff is friendly, cute "cellar" atmosphere.... Cozy!

Good Mexican in a small restaurant near the bridge. Pretty dark downstairs, so grab a chair outside. The restaurant is BYOB, so bring your own Corona. Chicken chimichanga with rice and beans is a good choice.

Took a little drive on Labor Day and ended up in Frenchtown. Surprisingly Frenchtown has gained some decent restaurants and this is one of them. Appears this Mexican restaurant has been around for quite many years but I haven't been to Frenchtown in a long time. That said service was prompt we sat outside and join the nice weather. The...

This was our second time dining at this restaurant with our four year old grandson. He loves qaucamole and chips and this place delivers with a very smooth, tasty qaucamole. It is a BYOB but there are very good Mexican soft drinks available. They now offer a kid's menu but the portion sizes are large enough to share. The salads... More

We had a great dinner at Cocina del Sol. We polished off the complimentary chips and pico de gallo in minutes, and figured that was it, but the friendly and attentive server immediately offered another round. And after we finished that, we were offered thirds! Reluctantly, we declined but just so that we might have some room for our meals.... More

This is a great place to have a nice casual dinner. They quality of the food is good, the portions are generous, and the prices are very much in line with what the meal is worth. It's BYOB, so you can enjoy a great meal with friends and not break the bank.

My husband and I stopped in at this place on a sunny weekend afternoon and had a dinner (early) that surprised us with it's high quality and reasonable price. We elected to eat outside because the restaurant is below street level and it was so nice outside. I had an appetizer of a tamale that was perhaps the best tamale... More

We just celebrated my friends birthday there. We were a party of 9 and were in no hurry to leave. I brought a cake with whipped cream icing and they kept it refrigerated until we were ready for it. The food was reasonably price, and there was plenty of it. Most of us took something home to snack on later.... More

Good Mexican food can be hard to come by in some places. Not here however. Location is located downstairs of a street level store, so it has a very neat atmosphere to it. I found it very cool that they had a variety of Jarritos soda available. All the menu items were fairly priced, a decent amount of food for... More
