“Very Good Mexican Fare”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

This place was recommended to me by a local when I started coming to town for work. I was impressed with the quality of the food coming out of the little place. I will say the green enchiladas are my favorite.

“Best Mexican food in town”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

The food and service at La Cocina are always first rate. Additionally, it has a genuine ambiance which is very pleasing. I have eaten there for many years and have never been disappointed in the quality of what I've ordered.

“Good Mexican food, unique setting”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

Found this place through TripAdvisor and based on local's recommendation. As reference, I eat Mexican every Friday night in the DFW area. On this Friday night at 6:30, the place was maybe half full. The food? Actually pretty good. It's located in what used to be a residential home in a somewhat sketchy residential area about 10 minutes north of I-20. Rice and beans were average, chips/salsa were fine. They don't serve chicken tacos, just a chicken burrito, which was pretty good. Service is very friendly. If you're in the Sweetwater area and crave Mexican food, this is the place to go. It can hold it's own against most of the Mexican food places in DFW.

“Great food. Loooong wait. ”
Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

The food was delicious, but we waited a long time for it. Local guy at the next table told me to get there before you get hungry. That, or call in your order ahead of time like they did.

“Good Mexican Food”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

It takes a while to get your order, but the food is really good and worth the wait. Menu is strictly Mexican food, so do not expect to have someone in your party who wants chicken strips or hamburger instead. The Charro tacos are excellent, as it the Number 30 Mixed plate. Hot sauce can vary from nice heat to very hot. Hard to find, out of the way, but totally worth the trip.
