The margaritas are excellent. Buy by the pitcher. All salsa is homemade and delicious. Can't go wrong with the Nachos Grande. Food is always fresh.

Cosmo has one of the tastiest menus in town. Specials change often and are always top notch. Service is good. Atmosphere is pleasant. Piano bar a few nights a week adds a nice vibe. Complimentary giant salty peanuts in the lounge area.
