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

Loud place so great for kids. Mexican food okay. Complementary chips and salsa good. Excellent drink specials Monday to Thursday. Makes it worth the visit. Staff always friendly and very, very fast service,

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

My wife had the chicken quessadillas and I had the chicken fajitas. Both entrees had enough food to feed an Army. For Mexican food, this place is 1 place to go.

I love La cocina! The food there is so good and they give you plenty of it too. La cocina is cheap and the bathrooms are clean. The food comes out quick every time and the staff are nice too.

We have been going to La Cocina for years. I have yet to have a bad experience here. The food is always fast and the staff is always friendly. We have been there a couple of times when they had a Mariachi band in there. I always order the La Cocina which is strips of steak smothered in cheese with... More
