Found it randomly about a year ago and loved it. Made the stop here again as we were passing thru and it did not disappoint! Everyone had something that they enjoyed. We will make the stop here every time we are passing thru Battle Creek as this is now one of our favorites. Personally thought it was better than any of the Mexican restaurants in the Detroit area.

We eat here regularly and enjoy especially the fahitas. We used to get fahitas for two but lately we been getting fahitas for one and splitting it and there is still leftovers for the dog. The La Cocina on Beckley has the atmosphere which suits best.

They have 2 locations in Battle Creek. I only go to the one on Columbia Ave. Authentic Mexican fare is what you will get, including delicious meats in all of their dishes. Their tacos are only average, but everyting else is awesome. Enchiladas, burritos, chile rellenos and on and on are delicious.

But the best thing about La Cocina is their Margaritas! If you like a good frozen margarita there is none better in the area. They are the best I have ever had, and I've had my fair share. But don't try to get their recipe, I've been trying for over a year, no luck.

This past weekend, our family was in Battle Creek for a memorial service. After the service, we were looking for a restaurant & decided to try La Cocina Mexicana, since we all love good Mexican food. The waiter was friendly but a bit difficult to understand. Complimentary chips were crispy & good. My meal came without the beans & rice that were ordered, & the rest of the food was OK but nothing great. Family members agreed that they won't return.
