If you're traveling to Yosemite on Rt 120, this restaurant is about an hour outside the park. It's small, and apparently family owned/run. Food is wonderful and prices are reasonable. We always stop there en route to Yosemite.

Small but surprising. Nothing fancy but the food was authentic, freshly cooked and a very good value.

We had a bit of a wait, on a friday I think. Food was good and came pretty fast, the service was ok. I had the chile relleno and a enchilada. The chips and salsa were very good though I like my salsa HOT and it was not. Most people don't like spice like I do. I would come back... More

This is a small, authentic Mexican food restaurant. Although my husband could eat Mexican food every day; this is the only (and I do mean only!) Mexican food I have ever enjoyed. The servings are ample, the service is friendly or you can get take out for home. Delicious!!!

This place was recommended by our B&B. We were looking for a casual place. This fit the bill. The salsa and chips were a good start. The entrees were authentic and well prepared. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. Interesting mix of patrons, but mostly locals. Beer list was decent.

We stopped in Groveland for dinner after returning from Yosemite, with a side-trip to Hetch Hetchy Reservoir. The Cocina was busy with a large family group, so our meals were a bit slow in arriving. But the variety of menu options was impressive, and when we got them, our food was fresh and tasty. This appears to be a small... More

Just an average Mexican meal. I found the meat tough, the salsa on the salty side and really nothing above average.
