I was kind of leery of the non traditional Mexican menu but thought it we try it any way. I ordered the Captain Jimmy's seafood tacos and they were great. I had one shrimp and one mahi mahi. The jalapeño coleslaw topping was super. The black beans and rice were great too. I will definitely eat here again. Lots of... More

Very nice outside, covered patio. Great food and drink. Staff is always friendly and courteous. Have never eaten anything there that wasn't wonderful. Great for a date, great for a family, great for everyone.

We are Mexican food connoisseurs. We give Coco Bolos two thumbs up. Very generous portions. Our server was attentive, but not overbearing. The cheesecake for dessert was a perfect finale.

Great thing about this place is that it's located on a quiet street apart from noisy bar/restaurant area of Manhattan just a block away. Fast friendly service, reasonable prices, good food and generous portions, and their margaritas are just great!

Stopped at Coco Bolos because of a great review and our love of Louisiana style food. We went with the trio appetizer and the trio grill. Spicy BBQ shrimp was my favorite but the quesadilla and grilled chicken and pork were mixture of wonderful seasoning. You have to try this if you are anywhere near KSU. All made from scratch!...

4 of us ate at Coco Bolos before a performance at McCain. The service was wonderful and the food delicious. I had the Tijuana Trainwreck on recommendation from our waitress-amazing! I chose the tomatoe/buttermilk salad dressing and was very happy that I did. I will definitely go back. As an added bonus, the restaurant supports K-State theater!

This restaurant will fill up fast so beware. That's a good sign though it only means the food is good and I am now a believer. Great food with great prices.

Coco Bolos is a busy place on the Friday night of a football weekend. I was eager to checkout the menu to make sure my favorite item was still there. Sure enough my Tijuana Trainwreck was still on the menu. It is a delicious hot, baked combination of tortillas, chili, black beans and cheese served with a salad. SO GOOD!!

We had a great time visiting and enjoying the food. Fun atmosphere, good staff. It was very busy, but the service was great as well as the food.

I have been here multiple times and they have amazing food. It has a twist to regular Mexican food but is always a top pick for restaurants in the ville.

Thank Ashlea B
