Coa at Bayshore Town Center

Coa is the newest restaurant to open up at the Bayshore Town Center in Glendale. Filling in the long-vacant property previously occupied by Cameron’s Steakhouse, Coa markets itself as offering true-to-taste Mexican street food. Not ever actually having eaten true Mexican street food I can’t say for sure what that means, but the wide variety of appealing tacos and entrĂ©s made making a final dinner selection tough. As soon as you sit down, they’ll bring you some sort of extra salty Frito-Lay flavored chip with two types of dip, neither of which in any way resembled the traditional salsa that you expect from most Mexican restaurants, but both of which were spicy and at least decent, but not great. Unable to really decide what I wanted to eat, I decided to get their three taco meal, which offers the most variety on their menu. First you choose whether you prefer white corn tortillas, flour tortillas, or lettuce wraps. From there, you can choose any three of their wide variety of tacos. The three I chose, carne asada, baby back ribs, and chicken, were all terrific and I would definitely eat again. Also included with the tacos was an option of white or Mexican rice as well as black, refried, or their own “coa” beans. I opted for the Mexican rice with refried beans. Normally I enjoy that combination of sides for a Mexican dish, but the both were rather bland and unimpressive. Aside from that, the meal tasted good, was very filling, and the service was not always fast, but at least friendly. It won’t necessarily be my first choice of restaurants when eating at Bayshore, but I’m sure I will end up there again and, assuming the service and some of the food improves once they get more established, I would recommend it to family and friends.
