No matter how busy it is you will be seated very fast, and from there on service is swift, attentive and friendly. Alas the food does not always adhere to the same standard, Not that the food is bad, far from that, I just miss that spark that makes me say I had a Great meal, I ate something exceptional... More

I'm trying out all restaurants in the area, and had never been to La Cocina before. (Many people have told me they think it's better than La Fiesta.) Don't think I'll go again. Though there was plenty of help (when I left, the lobby was full of restaurant employees standing around), I didn't get great service. After my dinner had... More

The food is modetately good and they get it out quickly. It would be much bettet if it had any flavor. Overall it is an average restuarant.

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
