Born in Jalisco, Guadalajara, Cocina De Carlos owner Carlos Mendez brings the zesty, flavorful cuisine of that region to diners' plates. He personally selects the fresh produce and high-quality meats that he and his team—many of whom are family members—use to craft handmade tamales, burritos, and house specialties such as halved, grilled pineapples stuffed with shrimp and cheese. They never use any frozen or canned ingredients, and will prepare gluten-free and vegan dishes on request. For a different taste of Jalisco, try one of the eatery's signature margaritas. “All margaritas are made with 100 percent agave tequila. The House and Jr. House margaritas use tequila from my hometown,” Mendez told a writer for Toledo Free Press.
