Good and close to the hotel.

The food was good. Not fabulous but tasty and well seasoned. I had the burrito and it was more than I could eat.

Dined here last week because it was close to our hotel, the good thing about the restaurant was the server & cold beer. My husband has never refused a meal but it went back, chimwas cold & the beef burnt Don't waste you time or money at this restaurant. We love NM food but this was a disgrace

This restaurant has the best New Mexican food around. We have eaten here several times when we come down to Riverbend Hod Springs. Fabulous red chile enchiladas and ice cold beer.

We love Mexican food and were excited to try La Cocina because it was recommended by a local. Huge disappointment. First, the service. We walked in and were not greeted. We were led to a table by the hostess (who was also our server). She tossed the menus on a table and walked off. We stood there for a minute... More

Really a 3 1/2. We had the subprime pork burrito with green chile sauce and it was very good. Large chunks of tender pork. It was very large and could easily be shared. Very reasonably priced. Google guacamole. Friendly and efficient service. Extensive menu.

I don't recommend this restaurant. Food was over cooked and made me sick. I'm glad it was only for a few hours of sickness. This did not ruine my stay.

Sorry Your story just doesn't add up We are and have been one of the best restaurants in Southern New Mexico since 1965 We stand by our food. Sometimes we get it wrong but not very often. I also do not appreciate Trip Adviser calling to upgrade our rating on this site by paying them $200.00 for a plaque. More

The enchilada was not wrapped in the way I expected. The method of preparation here was that a flat corn tortilla was smothered with chicken chunks and a very thin, soupy green chili. The green chili alone would have been flavorful, but the saturated tortilla left something to be desired.

Our waitress deserves credit for her patience and ability to handle a large group of people arriving at different times (without reservations) with aplomb.

My wife and I came down to Truth or Consequences for a romantic valentines weekend and to enjoy the famed hot springs. Our lodging experience was phenomenal ....but our dinning one was not. Today on our way out of town we had the misfortune of stopping for lunch at one of the most ill mannered, unorganized and unappetizing restaurants that... More
