5 of us visited today and had the lunch buffet. Fresh food was added the entire time we were dining. Love the shredded chicken and the beef fajita's.
The server, hostess and owner were very friendly and checked on us often. Clean and bright atmosphere!
Left full ready for an afternoon siesta

This is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants. The décor is clean and updated. The chicken mango enchiladas are fantastic. They have gluten-free options and many unique dishes. Lunch buffet is offered. Free wifi and friendly service.

I recommend the Spicy Mango Fajitas or the Shrimp Cozumel. This place has the most craveable Mexican food in the area! ( And the Texas Margaritas are good too!)

Overall, The food at Cocina de Carlos was very good.

The owner of this business ran a place called El Patron Fajita Bar that was across the street in an old Wendy's building. That location was in a terrible physical location, so they rebranded and moved 2000 yards away.

Service was a bit scattered and spotty. Waited more than 5 minutes after being seated for a greeting. Difficult to obtain water and refills. Good chips and salsa, although the salsa was a bit mild. Food was fresh and tasty, although not served as hot as most Mexican places we have been. We will return for lunch or dinner when in the area again.

In a area known for good Mexican restaurants, Cocina de Carlos is the best. If you like burritos with a bunch of cheese poured over the top this is not your restaurant. I love Mexican food and have tried just about every restaurant in northwest Ohio. Lots of meals I never tried before.

Place attractive and tastefully decorated. Owner takes great pride in greeting his guests. A new bar and outside eating area is planed. The fact that service was excellent.
