I hadn't planned on hitting La Cocina while in Silver City, but our host at the Bear Mountain Lodge recommended it.... and late Sunday afternoon, nothing else was open save for a couple chain restaurants. So we ventured in, expectations well in check, especially since the previous evening's Mexican food in Silver City had been disappointing. The plain, square, spartan dining room did little to enhance expectations. But things improved rapidly once seated. We noticed the dining room was packed. I didn't know if that was because it was the only place open or if it was because this was known to locals as the place to go. I suspect it was a little of both. Chips and salsa arrived quickly and the salsa was positively scorching, but also had excellent flavor. Okay, this place is starting to look legit. I left the usual standard Mexican items and opted for the interesting sounding "enchilada style chimichanga" stuffed with carne asada. The asada was flavorful, having done a good job of soaking up the flavor of the marinade. The tortilla was perfectly fried, and the enchilada sauce was excellent. Good choice! Service was friendly and they seemed genuinely happy to have us there even though they were overrun at the time.

We were greeted immediately by Holly. The menu was very large. We were not sure what to order and since we are new to the area we never know what to expect heat wise from the different red and green sauces. Holly graciously brought out a sample of each sauce which really helped us decide what to order. All the sauces were delicious so I don’t think we could have gone wrong with anything on the menu. Food, service and price was excellent.

Not sure why you’re listing this business as “closed”, when I had an awesome dinner there tonight!! I especially love the patty platter with a salad. It’s a great low-carb but full of flavor item. My boyfriend likes his burger and fries both smothered in green enchilada sauce. Bonus: We always ALWAYS receive fast and friendly service. My favorite neighborhood diner!!

I highly recommend anywhere else on days of the week that alternatives are open. On days where there isn't much else, consider cooking or commuting further... The restaurant itself is relatively small and nestled near the shops and old town of Silver City. The service was fine, although it took quite a while to be checked on again once we received our food. The chips and "salsa" were more like chips and tomato paste. My order (Combo #1) was overall pretty poor; it included a pork tamale, cheese enchilada, taco (choice of meat), and rice and beans. While the quantity of food at only $13 seems like a pretty good deal, only the tacos were worth their while. I'd hardly call the tamale a tamale, the enchilada was a tortilla which may have been dusted with cheese, and the rice was clumped into balls and cubes. On top of that, the drinks (a can of coke and a lemonade) tacked on $4-5 each.

It may look like a renovated garage from the outside, but the food is excellent! The dining area was busy with locals, so we did take out and ate at the nearby park. There is lots to choose from on the menu. I had a chile relleno dish – the chile, cheese and sauces, beans and rice were all delicious. They also have very tasty hamburgers for those who prefer American style food. My wife reports the burger was great. The side salad was loaded with a mix of vegetables, way better than most side salads. We are from out of town, but the next time through, this would be our dinner stop again.

I love their carnitas taco plate, chimichangas, flautas, tortilla chips, you name it and they do a great version of it here. My only criticism would be that their green chile sauce has dairy in it and they don't do a green salsa (e.g. tomatillo salsa). They do however have a wonderful green posole.

The selection of items is amazing and it is vegetarian friendly with both whole and refried beans with no meat. The green sauce does have chicken 'juice' ?broth? in it. The service was fantastic and the giant horchata so cinnamon and refreshing.

The food was nasty and the staff rude including the manager-someone named Jean?! Saw employees smoking right outside the restaurant and cigarette butts everywhere. Smell was disgusting. Employees sitting in their cars blast Ing their music. Very unpleasant!

If you are 420 friendly don't go here. The 420 businesses across the street was holding a promotion for their building. The owner of the La Cocina business, was standing outside the entire time I got my order to call the tow company on cars parked on the main street in front of their building, which is acroos the 420 business. There are only no parking signs on the side of their building with their parking lot. Not at the area he was calling. As someone who uses medical, I will no longer support a business who clearly seems to have something against the customers that do use the herb. I mean why else would you waste your day calling tow company's instead of making these customers feel welcomed. They could've made a lot of money from the people they are trying to tow but it seems they want to chase them away instead.

I grew up in New Mexico. Dinner here was some of the better New Mexican food I've had -- at a great price ($13 including tax). I usually don't enjoy food in a white sauce because it seems to dilute the flavor, but this sauce added flavor. I've never had a pollo asado enchilada before; it made the flavor a lot more interesting than plain chicken. (I had it with green chile.) The plate was huge, but I didn't want to miss a bite. The restaurant is small and plain. It's not a place to linger -- if you can find a seat. (I came at 5pm on Thursday.) A steady stream of people were taking food out. I'm in Silver for two nights; I'll be back here tomorrow!

Stupid new rules: unless party not all there no seating or ordering. We knew what everyone wanted to eat.

We went here because it was one of the only restaurants in town open on a Sunday evening and got a decent Tripadvisor rating. They were very busy, seemingly with locals, so we had to wait about 30 minutes for food, but the staff was friendly and asked us if we wanted more chips and salsa, etc. The place is relatively small, with tables close together. The food was fine--nothing special for Mexican food--but good nonetheless and certainly freshly prepared. The prices are very reasonable.

Off the tourist path and closer to the college, this is definitely a local place. Good, but not great, Mexican food. Good service. No ambiance.
