“Awesome fish tacos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

After a long day at Mesa Verde we decided to walk over to Koko's friendly pub from our nearby hotel. I was pleasantly surprised by each aspect of our dinner. We started out with chips, Salsa and Guac. The guacamole was very tasty. I had the Anazazi burger and my spouse had the fish tacos. mine was very tasty, but he reared about the fish tacos being some of the best he ever had. We also enjoyed a Mojito and Margarita as well as the cheesecake for desert. We won't have a chance to come back, but would recommend this to anyone else passing through town.

Hey Surfbum101NM! Did you know that Mesa Verde is a World Heritage Site? I had no idea until recently, amazing what you learn on the daily... I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed yourselves with us - Go fish tacos! That is quite the compliment, we love getting those (and who doesn't?) I'm bummed you wont get to come visit us again, but who knows? We will be here with a Mojito should you ever get the chance again :)

“"THE BURGER"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

On your way through southwestern Colorado and lucky to end up in Cortez??? Then just make sure not to miss this place. Want to know how a proper home-made Angus beef burger should taste like?? Just go for the "Anasazi Burger" with a home-made famous bbq sauce and coleslaw a side... Chargrilled burger as a burger should be!!! When thirsty, ask for DPA (pale ale), a local and very tasty beer. Hope to be back sooon for more!! Thank you for the treatment, Koko's!!!

Awesome to hear from you Loody611! Thank you for the great review! It's all about the love, right? And yes, our Anasazi burger is our hands down best seller, so I'm glad you LOVED it! When you come on back through, hopefully we'll have more tasty local brews on tap... (and I see you're from Prague... beautiful city, I have a dream of bringing someone there to look at your beautiful cathedral, etc.) See you soon!

“Fabulous Meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

We are staying next door to this restaurant (The Baymont-Great family hotel!) and decided to go for dinner, and were so happy with our experience that we are going back tonight. The food is fabulous, priced reasonably for the quality but is on the med-upper range. We sat outside and was very impressed by the wait staff. They are closing this Sat night after business and beginning a ~2 week renovation, so expect that they'll be even better next time we come down to visit.

“Good fish tacos, strange setup”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

So it's connected to a hotel and next to another hotel, so they have a clientele from the visitors but plenty of locals. More of a sports bar but a strange room set up and very few seats in the shade The quality of the food is good, though, and the waitstaff is nice. Strange that the bartenders had to keep breaking up ice for each order though.

Ello, kcdenman! Yes, we do have some really awesome people on our team, and they're super fun to work with. Glad you enjoyed the fish tacos - I like to think it's the love in our salsa that does it! AAAAND Just So You Know: we are remodeling! Sometime this fall or so we will be putting a roof on our patio so you can escape the evening sun. I can't wait! Beer on the patio in the shade - woop woop!
