Well, the location is weird, the ambiance is not very good and the décor is subpar. The food however is great! - Guac is delish, quesadillas are loaded and generous and portion size is huge. Value is fantastic - Taste is fantastic and service is fantastic! I would take out from here unless you want a quick serve in-out meal.... More

We have been picking up the chicken dinners here since it opened. Still consistently good chicken and sides with the appropriate condiments. The pupusas and curtido are good. La Chocita was the first El Salvadoran style chicken place in the area and still the best. It's in an older frame building, but get past that and get a chicken.

This is a chicken place. Peruvian chicken to be precise. It is the best of it's kind I have found, and I do like my chicken! The place is small, so if you go right a noon you may have a wait. I tend to go a little early, and have almost always got a table. The BBQ chicken is... More

Don't come here on a diet! This is a great place for kids- service is quick- food is fresh. LaCochita is in a charming little house with plenty of parking in the back. The ladies are always very friendly & pay close attention to your order. We wanted to go to our favorite restaurant but they were closed so we... More

They have always great chicken and wonderful plantains! We tried Fajitas too which we loved as well. Price is very good too and we always struggle to finish as you get generous portions. The place is fun too, with a nice outdoor seating area in front and back. The staff is always friendly and very quick. Great place!

What a delightful surprise!!! Great food, great service!!!! Great Value. Funny location (next to a gas station and not easy to park) but well worth the experience. Portions were large and the staff were excellent ( even though English is not their 1st language). Highly recommended!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

At Christmas, to give myself a break, I ordered two whole chicken dinners with all the fixings and fed 6 adults with leftovers. Everyone loved the food and we even had some leftovers. Have eaten outside on the patio years ago, but not inside. I don't think the sell alcohol, but the food is great and the owners are very... More
