Fast, friendly, decent mexican food

There are lots of options for Mexican food in North Carolina. La Cocina offers fast and friendly service. My husband and I go about once a week after the gym with some friends of ours. We always get the same thing and it is the same every time, so they either have a very dedicated cook or very... read more

Came in for lunch with our group of 30. Had advised restaurant that we would be in, gave headcount earlier in week and confirmed 2 hrs ahead. Staff was apparently unprepared. Best part was my wife's margarita, delicious to her on a hot day. Food was so so. I ordered the Paco salad. Shrimp were excellent, chicken was dry, beyond... More

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
