Good, Tasty, No MSG, Big Portions

We started with a basket of homemade warm corn tortilla chips which were good along with a mild and spicy salsas. The mild salsa was a little on the watery side and heat warm-not spicy. The same menu is for lunch and dinner which explains the price. Little high in price for Post Falls, Idaho. I... read more

My family and I visit La Cocina quite a few times a year!! It's super close to our house so it's very convenient for us. The servers are great!! Food is yummy too!! We'll be in again soon!

Worst Mexican food I've ever eaten. The waitress though was very friendly. Too much salt & too smothered in cheese.

Was in Post Falls for business and got hungry but didn't have time to do any checking for good eating spots. Drove by La Cocina and saw a full parking lot, which for me is the deal maker! Great margarita and the shrimp fajitas were fantastic! Salsa was really good and service spot on. All around great place!

This Mexican restaraunt is our go to when we crave authentic chips, salsa and comfort Mexican food. I never leave without an extra container of salsa for home. The service is great, Felix the owner is hard working and personable. Love this restaurant.

The food is good. I especially like the Carne Asada Tacos, and their fresh chips and salsa. The service is good and the prices are very reasonable. It is our families favorite Mexican restaurant.

Excellent Mexican food and service. Being from Texas, my wife and I decided it was Excellent choice of Mexican food comparable to the quality Mexican food we were accustomed to in Texas. We will return again for a dinner, instead of lunch, next time. Pricing was average in value.

Once we stumbled on to this place, we really enjoyed it! Good Mexican food, drinks, prices, service.... and room for a group, as well as sports on TV. Check it out!

We found this place on Trip Advisor and read through the menu only to find out when arriving that the menu posted is not from La Cocina. This was disappointing. Request that Trip Advisor take off the menu. The waitress told us this happens all the time. The food was typical, not bad but not great. Under some circumstances we... More
