We visited with family, only four of us. It took a really long time to get our food. Our waitress was new but super sweet. I only wish she had the proper training and help she needed because our bill came our wrong and so did our food. We didn't mind the confusion except the food was not very good.... More

We're traveling in a small RV and spent the night in the Walmart parking lot. La Cocina was only a short walk away. We found the service to be very cheery and the Pork Carnita Fajita to be quite good. We were pleased to find Pacifico beer and large strong margaritas. It was worth the walk.

All the food is good, but I'd be happy just eating their chips and salsa. We were seating and served very quickly. Friendly service.

La Cocina is our favorite local Mexican restaurant. Their Rancho beans are the best. We buy their Guacamole in the big containers for use at home. We were saddened when Felix pulled the liquor out to use at a bar he opened but we can still have a beer or glass of wine.

Worst Mexican food I've ever eaten. The waitress though was very friendly. Too much salt & too smothered in cheese.

We started with a basket of homemade warm corn tortilla chips which were good along with a mild and spicy salsas. The mild salsa was a little on the watery side and heat warm-not spicy. The same menu is for lunch and dinner which explains the price. Little high in price for Post Falls, Idaho. I had a combination plate... More

Was in Post Falls for business and got hungry but didn't have time to do any checking for good eating spots. Drove by La Cocina and saw a full parking lot, which for me is the deal maker! Great margarita and the shrimp fajitas were fantastic! Salsa was really good and service spot on. All around great place!

This Mexican restaraunt is our go to when we crave authentic chips, salsa and comfort Mexican food. I never leave without an extra container of salsa for home. The service is great, Felix the owner is hard working and personable. Love this restaurant.
