Lunchtime on the road & we just happened on Cinco Amigos. This was a lucky find -- delicious & authentic Mexican food! I order a child relleno every time I see it on a menu, and this one may top all the rest I've had, even in the Southwest! It was a large poblano filled with beef & baked, not... More

I used to eat here when I went to TTU, so I had to stop in while I was in town. Their cheese sauce tastes different from most other places, it's better in my opinion. The food is always fresh, and my wife really enjoyed the giant bowl of Mexican chicken soup. The salsa leaves a little to be desired,... More

I recommend this Mexican restaurant because the food was great ( and huge portion!) and friendly staff. Reasonably priced and nice atmosphere. College town so lots of young people but families also.

As with most Mexicana restaurants we were seated quickly...chips, salsa and drinks came quickly. Nice beer selection. Salsa was good not overly spicy. Waiter was attentive our chip bowl, salsa and drinks were refilled. What separated this Mexican joints with others were the entrées. They were especially good. Ingredients were fresh the chicken was tender and the veggies were not... More

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant in Cookeville. The service here is great. Everyone is always very friendly and the food is better than average. A lot of items are still very generic and typical of "Mexican" restaurants across the USA, but they have a few dishes that stand out. The Chile Colorado is the best in town. Try them... More

At 6 pm on Tuesday, not many guests. We were warmly greeted, seated and our order taken immediately. We both had house margaritas quickly served. My wife ordered the chili relleño, taco,and enchilada; each ground beef. I ordered steak fajitas. We were served within 5 minutes. As others mention, being served so quickly is concerning as to freshness, but much... More
