Coco Bolos has always been one of my Manhattan favorites. Located in a small building on the northwest corner of Aggieville, it has a unique southern flair. According to their website, the atmosphere includes “tastes from the Gulf Coast, South Texas and Southern New Mexico.” However, it’s certainly not a traditional Mexican restaurant.
Some of their pork menu offerings include chili verde and chili con carne, both featuring pork shoulder, and thai pan bbq pork. I chose to eat Bud’s Cuban grilled pork sandwich. This was a deliciously spicy sandwich featuring seasoned pork shoulder slices on a grilled bun. It also came with a side salad and a wonderful homemade dressing.
I enjoyed my meal on a nice warm heated covered patio, watching the game on the big screen TV’s.
The owners of Coco Bolos also own the popular Manhattan barbecue restaurant Cox Brothers. I would encourage you to try out both of these establishments the next time you are in Manhattan.
Until next time,
