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

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

Yes, it is a chain, but a small one. Today they have 2 locations and are starting to build their 3rd. The food here is not bad, but I wouldn't go so far to say it is "authentic" Mexican food. The kids enjoy eating here because nothing is too spicy.

We go to La Cocina every time we visit our son and family in Santa Clarita. It is always packed and a long wait. This time, my wife and I ordered whole beans (which are outstanding) but we got refried beans instead. By the time we got the plate back the food was not hot. The flautas were not crispy.... More

La Cocina is a terrific place to eat. We have had many of the things on the menu and all of them have been very tasty. The lunch special is our favorite as the value is really good. The Chili Relleno and Enchilada lunch special is so delicious and filling that we find ourselves there every week. Good food, good... More

We went to La Cocina for dinner and were unable to find a single parking space in the lot ,due to a dance studio and karate studio at the strip mall. We parked across the street and entered the busy restaurant. It was busy because it is the BEST Mexican food in Santa Clarita! We had steak fajitas which were... More

Recommended by our desk clerk as the place-to-go for fine Mexican food, and she was right ... An extensive menu and the four items we sampled were EXCELLENT ... Furthermore, the refreshments were very "refreshing" ... Superior service and a nice atmosphere ... YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

La Cocina currently has 2 locations. We frequent Whites Cyn/Placerita Cyn. Soon we will have one down the street from our home. Can't wait! The food is authentic and the ambiance is great! This is a great place for full lunch and dinner, or just drinks and appetizers. Definitely a must visit when you're in SCV.

Met some friends here for dinner for the first time. The place was very crowded and noisy, good for the owners, not so good for customers. We ordered the usual combo plates which came with either a salad or soup. The soup was good, the salad looked ample, but very non-Mexican. We had just begun eating when the main dish... More
