“Good mexican”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

Good mexican food with an authentic menu. (The real mexican fare has it's own page.) The rest of the menu is typical amercanized Mexican food. Good selection of beer on tap including Negra Modelo, dos Equis, etc.

“A very popular Mexican restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2009

This is one of more popular Mexican restaurants in the Clayton area, especially with us locals.
The food is high quality and very good. Service is prompt and efficient. The salsa served with the chips while you're waiting is freshly made. The portion sizes are large.
The menu has quite a selection and I haven't had anything that wasn't delicious.
The margritas are machine made, but they're OK. There is a bar ajoining the restaurant which allows smoking.
LaCocina has opened a number of other restaurants in Eastern North Carolina so they are getting around.
