“Regular customer have never been disappointed”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

My wife and I just returned home from another wonderful dinner at our favorite local restaurant.
We have been to La Cocina many times, and have tried most everything on the menu and have never been disappointed. A nice Mexican atmosphere with out all the cheesy American ideas of Mexican, that you find at tourist areas. If you are looking good food good portions and reasonable prices and pleasant servers. Stop down you won't be disappointed either. Make sure you try the desserts the are a great treat at the end of great meal.

“Great Place”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Everyone has different tastes, the meals we have had here were great. My best friend from Jacksonville, Fl. said the food was as good as the Mexican places down there. Give it a try and make your own decisions, don't rely on those who did not like it here.

“Average Mexican food apparently run by caucasian Americans”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Food was okay but restaurant lacked the authenticity of most Mexican restaurants. I would eat there more often (twice so far) but they don't serve Margaritas. Food is fairly priced.
