Very nice surprise

A new location for this restaurant chain is being built very near to our home so we decided to try out one of their existing locations in another part of our valley. The companies practice is to locate the restaurants in small strip malls, so the first impression is a little deceiving. We found... read more

La Cocina is good enough that I could eat there every day. Absolutely love the Mole sauce. The chips and salsa are fresh and tasty. The lunch menu is simple and economical. The restaurant is quite busy at peak hours so don't be late. If you leave here hungry it's your fault. Always satisfying.

I love everything about this restaurant except how busy it is. I guess I can't really blame all of the customers because this place has delicious (strong) margaritas, addictive chips and salsa, and delectable and reasonably priced food. The tortilla soup is something that I crave regularly. Their chef's special shrimp dish is dangerously scrumptious. We visit this place every... More

We have been to this restaurant several times with our son and family. It is always a wait but it is worth it. This time the meal was outstanding.

Always good food, but get there early or you will have to wait. Nothing new or fancy just good old Mexican food.

My wife and I have eaten here often. We think the food is great and have always been impressed with the service. Great for a quick and affordable lunch. One of our favorite Mexican Restaurants in the Santa Clarita Valley.

The food here is good, the salsa is average. I've eaten too much Mexican food in L.A. and know that salsa makes a big difference. But, if you are in Santa Clarita, this is good.

Last year we found this place on a visit to Six Flags Magic Mountain. We thought the food was above your average taco shop quality, however, our server was a bit rude and we felt pressure to leave as it was near closing time. This is our second time here (we're here again for Six Flags) and can say that... More

Family members took us to the restaurant and when we first got there I was a little concerned. It is in a small strip mall and from the outside just doesn't look that great. When we got inside my view changed. The inside is very clean and decorated nicely, but it is very small. The service was very good and... More
