First time here but my friends were regulars. This was a very busy lunch time but I thought service was excellent. They have an extensive menu that includes a large lunch section. We were served within 10 minutes. Everything, from the taco, the enchilada, and even the rice and beans were all tasty, and as close to the tastes I... More

I had the Chicken Enchiladas Suissas. This was a great choice as it was awesome. My wife loved her steak fajitas too. Service was also excellent.

We ordered take away because we have a baby who has learned to yell and do not want to bother other patrons and the phone call was extremely hard to hear. The music was pumping extremely loud and the woman who took my order was having trouble hearing me. I ordered a chicken taco salad, and 1 order of tacos... More

Where do I start? Hot, crispy chips, very attentive wait staff, got the food quickly, and it's clean place with great ambiance. Food was great, and affordable. This was our first visit, but certainly not our last.

On many previous visits we were very impressed with the food, BUT unfortunately there has been a change of much of the personnel. All of the new workers speak very little English. Tacos very, very greasy, dripping of grease. The Fried chicken burrito, was barely fried on the ends. 3/4 of the burrito, which was soft and soggy, chicken was... More

The lunch menu has a great variety with good prices. I had the shrimp fajita which was very plentiful. The service could have been more attentive. Eric though was a great server with a huge crowd that I brought in there. The problem they didn't have the room set up the way I requested.

We had heard lots of great things about this restaurant, so we decided to try it. Huge waste of money! The chips were warm, which is nice but if the salsa tastes like it was poured out of a can, not good. When our meals were delivered, I had ordered a #7 and somehow I was served chicken nuggets and...

I have visited other La Cocina restaurants and have always been pleased. This is my first time at the location in Cary, and of course, I was not surprised by the same good food and customer service. The only negative is that the air conditioning made it too cold but since the food was great, it was worth it.
