I've been to Cooks several times in the last six months. It's a welcome addition to North Tacoma. The menu has a great variety at every meal, and the servers are more than willing to convey special requests to the chef. For example, they will serve any sandwich as a lettuce wrap, a key service to anyone on a low-carb diet.
Cooks is a busy place, but well worth the trip from downtown or other areas of town.
