Fast, friendly, decent mexican food

There are lots of options for Mexican food in North Carolina. La Cocina offers fast and friendly service. My husband and I go about once a week after the gym with some friends of ours. We always get the same thing and it is the same every time, so they either have a very dedicated cook or very... read more

Very good service, clean setting, but the food was only so-so. We had ACP, queso dip with our nachos and salsa, and then chicken tacos. I wish I could be a bit more glowing, but all of them (including even the cheese dip and salsa) were very average.

My family has been going to this La Cocina restaurant off Lake Pine for years, and it has become our de facto choice when in a hurry or when we cannot identify a place we want that night. We have been all over the menu, but favorites that stand out are the Botanas de Carnitas, various Fajitas plates, the Stephanie... More

We've been looking for a good Mexican restaurant since we moved up here - we found it in La Cocina! Wait staff was friendly and efficient, and the food was so good! Can't wait to go back again.

Came in for lunch with our group of 30. Had advised restaurant that we would be in, gave headcount earlier in week and confirmed 2 hrs ahead. Staff was apparently unprepared. Best part was my wife's margarita, delicious to her on a hot day. Food was so so. I ordered the Paco salad. Shrimp were excellent, chicken was dry, beyond... More

We had a craving for Mexican food and decided to try La Cocina. It was a great choice! The service was quick and the staff was very polite. The food was delicious!! We had ACP, Pollo Chipotle, and Fajitas Hawaiiana. Yum Yum!! And their Chicken soup has a rich flavor. We will definitely be dining here again ... soon!

The food is prepared quickly, especially at lunch. Servers are friendly. Food is fine...nothing to write home about, but not bad. They have specials on their house margaritas which are a great deal. We visit frequently...Sometimes just for drinks!
