We arrived hot, hungry and thirsty after a bicycle ride. The beer was cold and the food was great . We had a assortment of nachos, Enchiladas, chimichanga, and burritos. The green enchilada sauce was especially good. The chips and salsa were much better than chain Mexican restaurants.

My meal was more than sufficient so I was able to bring the remainder home for a second delicious meal. The chicken was shredded... More

My wife and I stopped by and were pleasantly surprised. She had the Chimichanga, I had a burrito. Both were very good and reasonably priced. Will stop by again

Title says it all..Our primary house is in the NYC metro area, and I have access to some really great Mex food. I've also had great mex food in many other places, including Mexico.

Food was good. Portions were very adequate. Prices were very fair. Family oriented, but bottle beer and margaritas available. Our service was very good.

We had a great meal in La Cocina we shared combo fajitas which were more than sufficient at the end of a very full day. The fajitas were really tasty and the service was excellent. The meal was very good value for money

Hard to find but worth the search, this is the only Mexican food in town (I don't count Taco Bell). They make everything from scratch and offer a good selection of south of the border choices.
