Some highs and lows in this place. Waiting area was really hot, making the dining room seem comfortable by comparison. Menu is more extensive than most chains, and you can make your own two- or three-item combinations. Ordinarily you can expect a good assortment of MX beers. Sadly, we went on a Monday and they hadn't resupplied after their busy weekend, so they were out of several of the beers and also ran out of rice. REALLY! They were nice about offering any kind of substitutions that we wanted, but some of the dishes were bizarre without rice. And be warned, if you don't snag one of the very few street parking spots then be prepared for a hike to the only legal parking in this town; most of the lots have Tow-Away signage and one can only wonder where your car would wind up if towed from this little town (scary).

This restaurant surprised me with the very large menu of Mexican cuisine. Note that there is nothing fancy about this place, but the service is good and the staff are friendly. They food is tasty and really hit the spot after a day of hiking in Yosemite. Prices are very reasonable.

Cocina Michoacana is one of three, all owned by brothers in the same family. The other two are Oakdale and Sonora. The one in Groveland is locally-owned by Sal. It is consistent food and very firendly service - especially Friday and Saturday evenings. Try the carnitas before those are sold out .. only made on Saturdays.

We had a really delicious meal at a reasonable price. I would recommend this restaurant. The home-made salsa was great.

The food at Cocina is as good as their service! Family owned resturant that serves excellent food. My favorite is either the chili rellanos or the chicken milanesa, either with their green sauce is wonderful!
