Four of us went out for a girls night and had a great time! Booths are super spacious and it wasn’t too crowded because we went early in the evening at 6. Our server was great and kept checking in to see if there was anything we wanted and kept bringing us extra tortilla chips. He recommended what tequila to order as well. We all had 2-3 drinks, a meal, and split dessert and app between us. It wasn’t too loud, just other people out for a good time. Really enjoyable experience! We will be back to try out the brunch sometime soon

If you are looking for authentic Mexican food at a very reasonable price than Cojones is the place for you. our table of four had a great meal with excellent service. The margaritas are awesome. Large selection of Tequila brands. Well worth a visit. Try the duck nachos, really yummy!

During date night my wife and I decided to try Cojones and found that our decision was not a regret. From the moment we walked in to the moment we left every minute was enjoyed. We loved our meals and our drink and can guarantee we will be heading back on the future.

I can't understand how this place stays open. The food was unimaginative, not well prepared. Service was slow and poor overall. Server was sweet and charming, but too busy. Mexican cuisine, tradionitional and modern, has so much to offer, such diversity! How anyone could come up with this menu is baffling. Drinks were solid.

Awesome dinner! Best Mexican We have eaten in 30+ years of doing so. Lots of flavour which and nothing was defused under a mound of cheese and sour cream which seems to be often the case elsewhere.

The service was fast and our waiter was super knowledgeable about all the menu items! The moose taquitos are amazing!! And the nachos are HUGE. All in all a very yummy (but also very salty) dining experience. Would recommend to anyone for looking for a Mexican meal but be weary if you’re not into salty dishes.

The food was excellent. The service wasn't great. Our order was accurate but the waiter was not attentive and seemed distracted. He never asked if we needed drink refills. When we ordered coffee he asked if we wanted milk but did not bring any sugar. We didn't have enough napkins. Because the food was really good and we liked the decor we will go back again but would hope that the service would be better. I would not go to Cojone's regularly unless the service was better.

We had a wonderful meal at Cojones on Friday evening. The Jug of Spicy Mango Margaritas was a good start and went well with the zesty La Bomba wings and the Street Corn. My wife had the Burritto bowl, I had the Flautas and my son had the Short Rib Burrito. All our meals were very flavourful and the service was excellent. There was so much food that we all left with take-out boxes which are great for late-night snacking! The Silver Patron Tequila shots made a light and tasty dessert. Excellent job Cojones!

The service was fantastic and the food was lovely. The only complaint that I had was the quality of the margaritas they were served. The first Margarita was really good and as the the night went on the glasses got smaller and had more ice than anything else. I swear that some glasses had about 3 sips and the rest was ice. This was a steep price for 11$ per cocktail. My tolerance for alcohol is little (literally 2 glasses of wine and I'm done) and I had 6 margaritas and felt the alcohol a bit but given that I had 6 cocktails we all commented that the margaritas were about 60% ice, 30% mix, 10% alcohol maybe. Our table spent about 800$ and we could have had a catered dinner at home with quality margaritas and spent much less. If this was just my opinion I probably wouldn't share this feedback but the 7 other people at our table agreed. I didn't want to say anything to our server because she was lovely and the service was unbeatable but I probably will choose to go elsewhere if I have dinner and cocktails with friends again. Not sure if I would recommend to a friend. For the food and service yes, for the drinks a hard no.
