Food is ok but the service is going down hill...They have a few waiters that don't really care..If you get one of the good ones you're in luck...

I like it hot and steamy.....this place is willing and able to satisfy on both accounts. Their mole is smacking good and their green sauce would make a ball of lint taste good. Good portions and fair prices are a good combination and this place has the right combination.

I eat here often as my company has a location very near by to this place. As I have a couple of Mexican-born colleagues, I find it interesting that they always choose this restaurant for their local. The biggest thing is the quality is consistently good. The food is nothing super special, but it is always served very fast, hot,... More

I stopped going here after they wouldn't honor their coupon printed from the local newspaper. We've had a couple of family events at the other location and we find their food bland and unappealing. However the parking lot will be packed on weekends. Better food can be had at La Fiesta.

This is a local favorite & has been our family's go-to place for everything from a couple's night out to a family get-together to our daughter's after-game dinner &/or awards with her soccer team. Many groups in the area use them for meetings & awards dinners. Even on the busiest night, the serving staff are friendly & I've never seen... More

I grew up on TexMex and have come to accept that it's nigh to impossible to find on the east coast. So I don't set my standards too high when I choose Mexican restaurant when traveling as I did with this one. I will agree that I was seated quickly and the service was good. But the chiles poblanos I... More

Always, Always Excellent Service. Even if the parking lot is full you will never have to wait long to be seated. Service is always fast. Food is excellent! Servers are always nice and very attentive. I can't say enough about this place! Great Margaritas! Never ever had a bad experience here and I've been going here for years! Great grade... More

My family loves La Cocina. It seems that people in the area fall into 2 groups with regard to Mexican food - those who love La Cocina and those that love La Fiesta. Both are excellent restaurants, but we fall into the former group when given a choice. The atmosphere is bright and clean, the staff friendly and seating plentiful.... More

If you're looking for delicious Mexican in the Mebane area, try La Fiesta on Mebane Oaks Rd instead. Just one exit up and so much better!
