The food was good and authentic. Drink service was a little slow. The margaritas were good once we received them.

My husband had the chicken enchilada, cheese enchilada, and rice and he said it was very good. I had a taco salad and I think it was the best I have ever had. Lots of places go too heavy on the seasoning mix for the beef but theirs was just right. Our server was excellent.

I come here often I eat the la Cocina something. It is awesome. The service is good and the food comes out quick. The salas and chips are good while you wait. My friends and I eat here regularly.

Normally I prefer to write positive reviews and don't bother writing one for some place that is just average, but La Cocina was so awful that I felt I should warn others.

Staying in the area with family, and wanted a good dinner and a margarita. Best margarita since I visited the southwest, maybe better. Food was excellent and the staff as well.

A few of my coworkers and I go out for lunch once or twice a month. La Cocina is where we almost always go. The food is consistently great and the service as well. Very reasonably priced, especially the lunch specials.

Food is the best Mexican in the area. The portions are very large for the price. The ambiance is awesome. It is ideal for couples, families, parties, etc. It is the only place that I can find delicious Menuedo.

I recommend the chicken soup. Tender chicken peices, rice, pico de gallo and big chuncks of avocado. Mmm, Comfort food.

Ate here recently with my family. First we had to wait a long time for our meal probably about 30 minutes. We went through two baskets of chips waiting and waiting. Waitress was good then checking back with us and giving us refills on our drinks. On the positive side, the menu was varied, the food was pretty good and... More
