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

This is my family's favorite Mexican place to eat. We love the chips and salsa! The Chile rellano is the best I have had. All of the staff is very friendly. I don't know how authentic it is, because I have never been to Mexico, but I do know that the food is good, and so is the service.

The owner is so nice! He is usually the one who seats you, and sometime your waiter. I've never had to ask for a refill. Very accommodating with special orders, also. Delicious food! I got the nachos and took home the leftovers, it was a whole other meal! Worth coming here every time.

Being from California I've had a chance to eat at a lot of very good authentic Mexican food and this restaurant is definitely worth including. They staff are very courteous and seat you promptly. The chips and salsa arrive very shortly thereafter. They serve both a mile and a hot (very hot!) version of salsa. I had an enchilada and... More

The staff here were very friendly. The salsa was delicous!! We came here while on vacation an just writing this review is making my mouth water. The size of everything we ordered was quite large so don't let your eyes be bigger than your stomach.

read review praising chili rellanos. Decided to try for lunch. wife had rellano only and I had rellano with a pork enchilada. Salsas were probably the highlight with very good (thin and crisp) chips. the rellanos were mostly egg and breading. Way too much for the little anaheim pepper. Service was varied. 2 waitresses. the one who waited on us... More
