Better than some

Another restaurant in Gallup that feels like it was a big deal in the past. Food is better than some of the other New Mexico Mexican places. Smaller place with dim lighting for atmosphere that is always busy. Friendly staff. Good service.

Compared to other SW restaurants we've been to, this one just doesn't cut it! Very disappointing especially after reading the reviews and getting our hopes up!

This restaurant is not a real mexican food place, it is a new mexican food restaurant so they should not advertise it as mexican restaurant....

We thought we'd try this based on Yelp reviews and we were glad we did! The prices were good and the food was delicious. We met the owner while we were there and he said it's all home made...including chili rellenos! The beans and rice are normally not that great in a Mexican restaurant, but we ate every morsel here!... More

When our first choice, Gennaro's, was closed (they close at 7:30) we tried this place and were not disappointed. We had the smothered steaks, which were cooked perfectly. And the price was a great value. Loved the green sauce especially. Another plus, they have the best freshest Tecate beer. Everything was tasty and service was fast and friendly. I agree... More

I went to Cocina a few times while in Gallup for work. It never disappointing. The Sopapila was awesome and very filling (the smaller portion is plenty!) My favorite was the navajo taco. Ingredients seemed very fresh. Its relatively nice inside and has pretty good drinks also. Service was friendly and never had to wait.

If you're looking for some great Mexican food in Gallup, my bet is on Cocina. They also have great prices, friendly, attentive staff and a small bar. This is a short review because not much needs to be said other than "Go there!" I recommend the stuffed sopapilla.

Our dinner of Navajo taco and beef chimichanga were tasty. The only complaint I had would be the chips and salsa. The chips tasted like they came out of bag and the salsa tasted like it had been poured from a jar. The service was great except we did have to wait a bit for our check but it was... More
