We had a craving for Mexican food and decided to try La Cocina. It was a great choice! The service was quick and the staff was very polite. The food was delicious!! We had ACP, Pollo Chipotle, and Fajitas Hawaiiana. Yum Yum!! And their Chicken soup has a rich flavor. We will definitely be dining here again ... soon!

The food is prepared quickly, especially at lunch. Servers are friendly. Food is fine...nothing to write home about, but not bad. They have specials on their house margaritas which are a great deal. We visit frequently...Sometimes just for drinks!

Do yourself a favor and stay home! Save your money! There were 3 of us and we all agreed that this was the worse Mexican food we have ever had. The staff will deliberately not look at you as they walk by. The food all tasted as if it was cooked on the same grill. In otherwords, all of the... More

We have just moved to the Apex area and was looking for a new Mexican resturant. We passed this one a couple times and thought we would give it a try. The first waitress we had was really rude and asked us nothing except if we were ready. We had no chance to tell her we had never been before... More

First time here and we arrived at noon. A lot of patrons there but service was quick and food was hot and amazing ! I had 2 vegetarian enchiladas and there were very good. Prices were right on track for the quality of the food. Try it out !

We really like this place. Prices are reasonable, the service is great and the food comes out quick. We like the Quesadilla La Cosina which includes shrimp, pork and beef. It also has an ample amount of shrimp and comes with generous portions of sour cream and Guacamole on the side.

I ended up coming here for a family birthday and just went to Toreros (if you want that review, you can go hunt it down) a couple days prior. The restaurant itself looks nice on the inside, gives you the impression that you're in for a treat. As far as service goes, we were a large party, and I was... More
