Drinks come in all flavors at Coco's — spirited for happy hour just the same. To start the party authentically, get a regular margarita, $6, splashed with Patron, orange liquor, Grand Marnier, lime, salt, or for something a bit wilder, order a fun margarita, $6, floating with pieces of red and green apple.

Coco's cocktails taste even better paired with its spicy grub: giant Patacones (fried green plantains), $7, topped with refried pinto beans, chipotle-marinated chicken, lettuce, tomato and cheddar cheese, served with a guacamole side, and Aztec soup, $7, shredded chicken, sour cream, cheddar cheese and local avocado slices.

Enthusiasm soars high when you gulp a second drink between bites of enchiladas, $10, covered in basil-jalapeno green sauce, garnished with sliced avocado, served with sides of whole pinto beans, Mexican-style rice, sliced cabbage and pico de gallo.

Ambiance

A mix of beach-loving vacationers and cheery groups of locals come to grab cheap drinks, watch the game on the bar's TVs, and mingle to make new friends.

Service

The bartenders and wait staff ensure you've got a drink in hand and a smile on your face — usually accomplished in that order.
