Yum

The food is great and the servers are really friendly. Never tried anything here I didn't like. Been coming years. It's always a toss up to eat here or Cancun.

This was our favorite until the last year or so. The service is still great but the quality of the food has declined. We were there just a few days ago and it was not good. I have had better food off the vendor trucks.

More traditional Mexican food. A very large menu including vegetarian offerings. I have carried many of my friends here and all are very pleased.

I was recently in the Mebane location for La Cocina, picking up some chicken soup for my brother, who was at home too sick to go out for dinner. The guy at the cash register was, and always is, so nice and attentive -- when I mentioned I was getting chicken soup to go, for my sick brother at home... More

No matter how busy it is you will be seated very fast, and from there on service is swift, attentive and friendly.

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

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.
