Reasonably priced, good Mexican fare

On a Monday night at 6:30 pm, even though they were crowded, our party of 8 were seated immediately. The wait staff were friendly and eager to serve us speedily. We had vegetarians in our group, who had many choices as did those of us who eat meat. Food arrived hot and seasoned well.

Every dish we have had was fine, though we try to go on the Monday and Tuesday nights when margaritas are on special. The large shrimp sauce dish is especially good too.

I remember my first visit to La Cocina. I fell in love with this place after my first meal. I always get the Texas fajitas. I couldnt get over how much shrimp, chicken, and steak was in these fajitas and it was a fairly large heaping pile of food. The one thing that stuck out in my mind was the... More

Very good food in a nice new location. The new restaurant has an outdoor seating area which is especially nice. Our whole family enjoys the food and the atmosphere.

I thought I'd try the new location of La Cocina ("The Kitchen" in Spanish). It is located near Lowe's Home Improvement in Mebane, NC. The restaurant is larger than the old location in the stip mall. The food is still reasonably priced. Jane H.

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 meal came out quickly also. I had the... 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
