“STILL THE BEST MEXICAN FOOD IN TOWN!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

They cook from scratch, make all their own tortillas, chips, hot sauce, and everything is awesome! All you need is an appetite for their generous servings of authentic Mexican food.

“Good homemade TexMex”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012 via mobile

Cheese enchiladas, flautas, and Chile relleno were all quite good! Friendly service, home cooked, will come back.

“REAL Mexican Food off the beaten path”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

I went with my wife and her family to La Cocina on a suggestion from a local and it did not disappoint! I had the Spicy Smothered Burritto and was so full that I did not eat lunch. I have been to Mexico and deep South Texas and this is what REAL Mexican food tastes like. The restaurant is a traditional hole-in-the-wall, but they are usually the best places to eat and this one is a must!!! They only take cash or check, so bring something other than plastic.

“Correction of another review”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2012 via mobile

LaCocina does not have buffet. The other reviewer was thinking of a different restaurant. This is an old fashioned, family managed restaurant that serves AWESOME Mexican food.

“AWESOME!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

No other way to describe it! Food was made from scratch, to order... including the Tortillas! The Guacamole Enchiladas are the best! They have a BYOB license, so you can bring your favorite beverage.
