Chef Carlos and his father

The Carlos Story

Owner and chef Carlos Mendez is originally from Jalisco, Mexico near Guadalajara and comes by his passion for wonderful food quite naturally. His father and other family members are often at work in the kitchen preparing “secret family recipes.”

The emphasis here is on quality and freshness. Nothing is ever frozen but the ice cubes, and no ingredients come in cans. Fresh produce is personally selected by Carlos to ensure quality.

With over 12 years restaurant experience in the United States, including 7 in the Toledo area, Cocina de Carlos is the culmination of a desire to offer great value and what he calls.
