Enjoyable Mexican Dinner

Our family of six enjoyed our dinner on Tuesday night. They are in their new location by Lowes which is spacious and well decorated. We were quickly seated and served. Salsa is generic and could use some fresh cilantro,lime and chunks of tomato. The cheese dip was quickly consumed by all. Our... read more

My sister moved to Mebane a few months ago and has raved about this place from Day 1. I finally got to visit. The combos are dirt cheap and the food is plentiful! I was really happy with the meal and the service. Looking forward to going back!

This is our go-to for mexican food. The staff accommodates my request each time and we always leave happy and full. One small request, hoping they'll take into consideration the need for more parking at their new location on 119. Clearly they have a following (us included) as the restaurant is always brimming with patrons. We wish them continued success.

My husband and I went here with our daughter and son in law. Was very impressed with their food and service. Daughter made the statement she and her husband eat here once a week. I can see why. Stop in and see them

The food here tastes pretty much like other Mexican restaurants I've been to. None of my food stood out as exceptional although the refried beans were better than average. Their new location is bright and cheerful, although more parking spaces are needed. Service was also average. It seemed like the goal was to get us out quickly. We ordered a... More

Went there with a group & a 2 yr old, &the place was very accommodating. Refried beans were especially good, but my taco & quesadilla were tasty, too. Decent prices--didn`t break the bank.

Not bad, not great. Everything was mediocre - food, service, pricing. My recommendation: drive down one exit and go to La Fiesta. If you're looking for something more traditional and don't mind a quick drive, go to Ixtapa in Hillsborough where everything is delicious and made from scratch!

I love La Cocina! It's really good Mexican fare at reasonable prices and it's really fast. That makes it a great place to bring kids. The salsa is made in house and it's just delicious. I highly recommend it.

We eat at La Cocina about once a week on average and have done so since they opened years ago. The staff is always friendly and the food is consistently excellent. The chips and salsa are real standouts and the folks at La Cocina keep them coming as soon as you walk through the door. I am posting this second... More
