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

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.
