This is a must every time we are in town visiting family. Always crowded and always a wait but worth it. Food is authentic. Margaritas are not the best but inexpensive.

I picked LaCocina because it was right down from my hotel and after driving 10 hours I wanted something close and fast. I'm glad I picked it, enjoyed the chimichanga, the guacamole salad, the margarita, and the chips/salsa. The chimichanga comes with queso sauce but...More

You’re gonna have to look hard to find the place (sign isn’t lit at night), but it’s worth the search! Mexican food was authentic and fantastic. Margaritas were good with some local options. Good service, nice people. Crowded (which is always a good sign), but...More

I was on a business trip, staying next door and decided to grab dinner here. I was pleasantly surprised by the authenticity of the food, it's the 'real deal'. I will definitely pay another visit to this establishment upon my next visit.

My food was cold, my order was wrong, and the lady could not speak english (and she was the only one working the front of the restaurant). They never answer the phone at their service road location. I will never give them my business again....More

Quality of food was a step above any other Mexican restaurant in this price range I have ever gone to. Had a chicken and shrimp dish that was the best. Husband had a mexican steak and it was actually cooked as requested

Growing up in San Diego before moving out here spoiled me regarding Mexican food. La Cocina is a authentic (not Tex-mex) restaurant. One of only three Mexican restaurants here worth dining at.

We decided to walk from the Marriot Hotel, that was a huge mistake, so take a taxi / uber / lyft anything. The food was good, service was okay. We had the Carnitas & La Cocina Quesadilla, both were good. Because we walked here we...More

Excellent service. When one of us forgot to mention a food allergy, they readily and happily replated the entree. The frijoles were excellent. The tamales were a bit too dry, but everything else was above average. Good value.
