Going to be honest, this was my 2nd time at Cojones. First time was shortly after opening, and it was very disappointing. Very happy I gave the restaurant a second chance, because everything was excellent on Saturday night! Food, drinks, service, table location...loved it all. Will be back for sure..thank you!!

Awesome meal and service for my birthday celebration. We had a great corner booth that accommodated our party of 8. Our servers were very friendly and helpful. Everyone enjoyed their meals and we highly recommend.

We had a reservation for 7:30 on a Saturday evening and arrived on time, but our table wasn't ready. We were seated at the bar to wait which took 45 minutes! The restaurant did comp our bar tab but we would have much prefered a shorter wait time for a reservation that had been made well in advance.
The food was excellent!

Was not impressed the noise level was terrible, the jug of margaritas was all ice only managed to get 4 glasses out of it would have been better value to buy individual glasses. 2 of us had the enchiladas which were cold the cheese wasn’t even melted so we had to send it back and by the time we got them back my husband was finished. We did enjoy our nachos and dessert. Over all very disappointed have heard so many good reports and was so looking forward to trying your place.

Delicious food! Having lived in Texas and trying many Mexican and TexMex restaurants we thought this was some of the freshest, tastiest and best we’ve had. The Margaritas were excellent as well.

I absolutely LOVE cojones. The food is top notch. I die for their moose taquitos. Lots of variety. Only thing lacking is variety in the beer menu.

Fantastic Sunday Brunch with our family. What is better than Huevos Rancheros and a jug of margaritas on a Sunday afternoon? Hot wings on the side! Great food & excellent service.

We had such a wonderful evening! The food was fantastic and the drinks were spot on! Highly recommend the spicy mango margarita! It didn't disappoint!
Tacos were to die for, chicken, beef, duck and vegan BBQ all rocked! We also had the fajitas, the burrito bowl and queso, each were just as delicious as the next.
If I'm honest, I had heard mixed reviews prior to going to the restaurant. I'm so glad I decided to go as reach my own conclusions because after last night, I'll definitely be going back! Going later on a Saturday night was also a good decision. The place was full of energy, and we definitely fed off the vibes of the the place.

Great food! Great drinks! Normally order tacos but decided to branch out and get something different this time and I was not disappointed. Would order the enchiladas again. Street corn needed more cheese. Was lacking compared to previous times I’ve gotten it. Otherwise it was great.

The food & the service was real good. Unfortunately, the sound and echo noise from the other tables was excessive to the point that we had problems hearing and speaking to each other at our table. There must be some way to dampen the sound effects with insulation etc. You should try and find an engineering/sound company who can do a survey and suggest a solution.

The dorotos are life changing. The cod tacos are devine. They were out of street corn which is understandable because they're so busy- just gives us a reason to go back again! The blueberry pom margaritas are our fav though would love to see bar service be a bit quicker. Overall excellent experience and always recommend this place to friends.

Food was delicious....but service not so great. We waited over 30 mins to get bill and ended up having to go to the bar to find our server and pay it.

Excellent food and ambience. Service was great as well, however a touch more attention to water refills would have been the last touch to bump my review up to a full 5 stars. My only tiny complaint for our experience. Overall it was an excellent evening!

Food was excellent with the exception of the rice which was gummy and bland. Otherwise, the moose taquitos were outstanding, the guacamole was wonderful and the enchiladas and tacos were so good. Highly recommend it.

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!
