A brighter, cleaner, more stylish Mexican restaurant than most. Had the best salsa we have experienced with the complimentary chips. More than adequate menu, good-size helpings, very friendly staff. Excellent Chile Relleno and tomatillo sauce. Surprisingly, no tamales on menu with one exception. If we lived in the area, we would dine here often.

We eat here often and love it! The salsa is so good! In fact I sometimes come here just to buy it and after a meal I often order some to take home. It is not a big place and can get crowded but I have never had a bad meal here. My favorite is the shrimp tacos. The shrimp... More

This restaurant is back to the good times. When they first opened the food was great and the service was good too. Then somewhere along the line things weren't so great so we stopped going there. After several years we decided to give it another try and it was back to the way it was in the beginning when they... More

My service was really perfect - fast, helpful and very friendly - from the time I walked in to the time I... More

Enjoyed a good dinner in Dixon. I had the chili relleno and chili verde enchilada. Others at the table enjoyed a chimichanga, chili verde and carnitas tacos. The food was good not great but was the best Mexican food we have had in and around the neighboring communities. Would return to La Cocina if we were in the area.

Took a friend here for lunch. Servers are the same as when they first opened, or most of them. I've been searching for the perfect Chimichanga. Found It. Meat, beans and cheese, no rice inside. Perfectly fried. Great flavor, great lunch price. I hadn't been here in a couple years, but will definitely be back for more chimichanga. Thank you... More

We had great service and the food was fresh, hot, and delicious! There were four in our party, our orders consisted of chicken tacos, shredded beef enchalada, pork burrito, steak enchalada, and chile rellenos that came with rice and beans. The complimentary chips and salsa was fresh and very tasty (they brought 2 bowls of salsa and 2 baskets of... More
