This restaurant came with a recommendation from the locals. Not good Mexican food, however my husband who can eat anything liked his meal.They need a trip to Colorado to learn how it can be done! Slow service, then the ADDED to a tip we gave!!!!! ~~ What nerve! Avoid this place......

This is the first and last time I will be eating here. The table they sat us at was sticky with what appeared to be honey. We sat there for 15 minutes before we were even offered a drink. The guacamole tasted like the avocados had gone bad and it was an army green color...yuck. I was not overly impressed... More

The moment we stepped from the "wasteland dystopia" of Casper, WY, La Cocina felt like a world apart. There is actually a feeling of peace there, it's low-key, great South American/urban music, nice, clean, very helpful great servers, awesome refried beans and salsa with the thick, home-made tortilla chips. I can't wait to go back here!! Prices were awesome too--affordable--not... More

If this is caspers best I am sorry. Dirty tables, dirty silverware, slow service. Food, beans straight from a can, rice from a box, not a fresh tomato to be had, rusty lettuce and the toughest beef in the fajittas I have ever had. Wsh I had gone to Chipolte, cheaper, fresher and a better margharita. The margharita at la... More

We came here based on a website recommendation. Our GPS had the old address programmed so use the Tripadvisor one. Device was friendly and fast. Food was very fresh and tasty! The chips and salsa and beans to start were a real hit. Portions were large and inexpensive. All 4 of us left overly full but very satisfied! Wish we... More

We are loyal fans of La Cocina. We have been eating at this restaurant for years. We followed them from their original location to their new location. We live out of town and whenever visiting Casper, this is the only place my family is interested in eating. In fact, we usually take extra home with us! Lol. The food at... More

Waitress brought out fresh salsa and home made chips for free. Ordered just a taco a la carte, and it was absolutely delicious! Plus it was huge, and completely filled me up. Also one of our kids meals were free since it was a Sunday. Definitely going back!

Upon arrival we were greeted with homemade tortilla chips and the most delicious salsa. Once we ordered it took 40 minutes to get our food. We ran out of chips twice, several minutes before being checked on for refills. We felt their service was slow for the small amount of people present and it being later in the evening. That... More

Fresh salsa and corn tortillas were great. Ate here twice, service was excellent both times. Does get crowded at lunch.
