One of our favorite Mexican restaurants

We have frequented this restaurant for many years. It is very popular, so sometimes you have to wait for a table at standard meal times. Last week we went for a late lunch and there were plenty of tables available. You are always quickly greeted with a basket of hot corn chips and a small bowl of... read more

I used to love this place, but their quality has declined in the past 2 years. I ordered chicken flautas and couldn't eat it, I couldn't even tell it was chicken, and the waitress didn't apologize for my dissatisfaction, like she was used to hearing it. But I wasn't charged for my meal. The restaurant was dirty, the floor was... More

I love this place! We go here a lot and every time it's busy. But every time the food comes out quickly and the service is great. I like that I can eat meatless and my man doesn't have to. Great flavor and great presentation. This is our go to place!

We usually go to the one in Greenville, SC which is closer to us but when we saw this in Hendersonville we knew we had to try it. The place did not disappoint, except that it was quite full and out table was located in a place where the sun was a bit bright. Outside of the lousy table we... More

Open and clean Cochina with excellent menu choices, including a well outfitted Salsa bar. I had the Fish Taco with an ala carte Tamale, and of course the chips with the soft bean dip & salsa bar offerings. The service Team accommodated our group of Nine in no time at all, brought Beer & other drinks in a sweet jiffy... More

This place is always crazy busy. They have a very extensive menu of just about anything Mexican. I have yet to have a bad meal. They have daily drink specials on beer and/or margaritas which add to the value. Complimentary chips and warm bean dip arrive almost before you sit down. Ordered meals arrive in mere minutes, always hot, plentiful... More

This has become one of our favorite go to restaurants in Hendersonville! Love the salsa bar. It also has a lot of vegetarian choices. Great value. Very authentic Mexican food. The service is very good considering it is always very busy!
