What a pleasant surprise! We expected a "decent" meal but ended up with an AMAZING dinner! Everything we ate (and drank!) was delicious. Would highly recommend to anyone in the area.

have been there 5 times in 3 years. The food was always good and was better than the 3 Mexican places I've been to within 30 miles.

Penn Yan ain't exactly foodie heaven, so a decent Mexican restaurant with a Friday special of tilapia tacos seemed like a pretty good bet. Solid little joint with nice service, good chips and salsa, and dirt-cheap prices. Can't go wrong.

The service was friendly and they readily accommodated us vegetarians with a tasty meal. Even though their menu isn't very veggie friendly, just ask and they will work with you. It was also super cheap. We didn't get to a lot of restaurants in the area (FYI they close early and they take a long time to get to due... More

We were in a hurry for a movie, so they were accommodating and served us quickly. Overall food was very good, some are better than others. Liked the the enchilada, burrito, tacos, chimichanga, fundido. Still decent, but not spectacular was the pozole soup, jalapeño poppers, and some of the mixed drinks although the prices for drinks were great. The bill... More

Just finished a meal at La Cocina. I hadn't eaten there in a 18 months because they didn't use to serve margaritas. I was told they now did so decided to give it another try. Arrived at 3:45 and noticed they served lunch until 4. Ordered a frozen margarita. It was large, but mediocre at best. Way too much ice.... More

Visited with my family in July 2014. - Small place probably can not seat more than 8 tables - Good margaritas - but small serving and not strong - Food excellent - I was impressed - Service was poor - took us 40 minutes to close our check....and the dinners coming after us took forever to get their orders in
