I went here for dinner because I heard they had a GF menu. I might consider coming here for breakfast because their GF breakfast menu is bigger and could be a better bet for safety. There were only three options for GF lunches and dinners. I had the grilled chicken and it was overly salty and was not something I would order again. I told the server that my item had to be GF and that I had a medical condition. I could tell that she had no idea what I was talking about because she responded back to me with some up beat comments about eating healthy. It was as if I had just told her that I was on a low salt diet. My chicken arrived with grilled vegetables, which I had asked for, and rice pilaf that I had not asked for. The rice pilaf isn't listed on the GF menu, so I sent the rice back in favor of the mashed potatoes that were on the GF menu. The mashed potatoes tasted strongly like fake butter and I would not order them again. If you've never been to a Cocos then you should know that they are a family restaurant. Most of the people eating here for dinner were elderly.
The Central Ave Coco's used to be a place where the staff paid attention to your needs. The few gluten-free foods varied over the years, but I never got sick because they listened to me. However, for my birthday last year, they changed their system and had a guy who seemed to be a maitre d'. (Why? Coco's?) Anyway, the menu had changed, and I was trying to work with the waitress about my gluten-free needs. She was trying, but the maitre d' was dictating what he thought I needed and overruling anything the poor waitress tried to do to help. Also, he didn't go back and ask the cooks when he wasn't sure, so I finally had to just get a plain steak and potato worth $$$. The steak came out raw, raw, raw. So, I complained, and he grabbed the WHOLE PLATE to take it back for a recook. In a near empty restaurant, this took over 10 minutes. My family finished before I even took a second bite. This USED to be a good restaurant. I contacted the company with a complaint, but of course, they never responded. Now, I refuse to step inside.
Terrible. I ordered the "gluten free combo" it came with wheat pancakes!!!!!!! We left there is no remake when I have the food in my mouth and luckily am a chef so I can taste the flavor of wheat and spit it out! Never again. It was also very dirty.
Only 3 items listed gluten free but only one was a salad
Now carries gluten free pancakes
