I put it a to-go order to la cocina last week. Normally I find their food to be quite good, but this time was different. They got my order wrong first, which wasn't a huge deal. However, I had ordered combination supreme burritos. It was obvious that the portions were smaller because this was a t to go order, however... More

The combination burrito supremes you ordered come with tomatoes and lettuce inside and have since 1967 If you order the regular burrito it will not have tomatoes ..; or you can always order a supreme without salad on the inside. Cheers More

No big deal, even though the name says Hot Stuff. Will not return. The chimichanga was not recognizable and the red chile was floured and not tasty in the tostadas compuestas. The basis tacos were soggy. The waitress tried her very best and was very friendly. We left very unsatisfied and hungry as we travel on I-25 north.

We use straight Hatch chili pods and have never used any flour in our red chili. Cheers More

I have been in and out of T or C for 30 years. In fact, I owned a property near there and know the area, and the food, well. Which brings me to the point. The last time I went to this restaurant was twenty years ago. It was that bad. But people change, right? And restaurants can also change.... More

Ate better in my Tucson. Understaffed at a busy time of between Christmas and New Year. The place Sierra Grande recommended was closed for the holidays. Basic tummy filling

The location on a hill beckons to the traveller on I 25. Coming from Albuquerque it's out favorite stop for green chili chicken, fried onions, steak and house Merlot. The portions are so big, some of the meat goes home every time.

Service was mediocre at best, food was disgusting. The address isn't correct on here either - 1 Lakeway Dr takes you into the middle of some neighborhood.

Service was slow, food was terrible. I was with a large party, but still...don't waste your time! I ordered cheese enchiladas and they were the worst I have ever had - two dried up corn tortillas sprinkled with cheese and red chile sauce that had no flavor. They forgot the garnish (which had to be ordered separately) and after waiting... More

We were in town for a high school rodeo and this was the worst out to eat experience I've ever had. I have NEVER ever done a review but feel like I need to. We waited for almost 2 hours for our food and after it came out it was cold. Even after we got our food we still didn't... More

Our party of four asked for a booth and we were seated next to the windows at about 5:30 in the afternoon. Very uncomfortable because of the heat. (The owner could have paid for heat shielding window tinting or awnings many times over with the savings in a/c cost.) Anyway, the place was practically empty so we moved to the... More
