Can't tell--is this a great Italian restaurant doing Mexican food or is it a great Mexican restaurant doing Italian? We eat here several times per year and have nothing but wonderful food from either side of the menu. We have taken a lot of people here over time and everyone loves the food-especially the monster size serving of lasagna. The... More

This restaurant is one of those "hole in the wall" places, off the beaten path, authentic and very good. We had Mexican food - enchiladas, and they were very good, as were the chips and chunky salsa. The atmosphere is lit dimly, but it was quiet and you could carry on a conversation easily, without having to shout over the... More

If it weren't for a friend of mine to recommend this place, I would have NEVER stopped by this little hole-in-the-wall. BUT I was extremely happy with the food, the service, but especially the FOOD. I never heard of a Mexican place that does Italian, but everything we tried was first-rate. Pastas were good, enchiladas were GREAT - and it's... More

My husband and I have eaten here three times and each time we've been very pleased with our meals. The food tasted fresh, had good flavor and was priced well. To be fair, all meals were on a Saturday afternoon, so it was not crowded and the service was very good. The mix of decor was fun and a bit... More

We've been to La Cocina several times because of the great reviews but we've finally had enough. The service is unbelievably bad. The wait staff is surly and not helpful at all. Last time I ordered the chicken parmesan...it was an unbreaded frozen chicken breast that had been microwaved and covered with cheese and sauce. Absolutely terrible. When I told... More

My two favorite foods in one place. The best lasagna in the city. I think that also goes for the Caesar salad. I also love the La Cocina Burrito and Chili rellenos. It is a complete dive and you will drive right by it if you blink long enough. They also have a very good wine selection.

Update: Its hard to find a good Mexican restaurant in Round Rock unless you want to fight the crowds at Chuy's. We had been very happy on our first visit here but on the return not so much. The margaritas are expensive-$6 for a small one-mostly ice. The dinners are okay, the service okay, the cleanliness okay-so I think it... More
