I had lunch here today after an absence of a few years. Happy to see that the food is still good after this time. We ordered the beef chimichanga and grande steak burrito. Both the dishes were very tasty and the portions are large.

Visited a couple of weeks ago. Food was so good. It was amazing that my meal looked liked a cardboard cutout. Taste just as good as it looked. This is my favorite dining area. The price is not exorbitant. Affordable tips too. Love it.

I mean legit Mexican its all the same for gringos with a lot of $$ signs I lived out west not really impressed. Also called ahead of time asking the bartender what their well liquors cost per shot and the bartender told us to come by 3 -5$ and we got there not even 20 min later and said we would have to pay $9 for a double even though I asked him why did he tell me that? Does anyone have a place to go that isn't taking advantage of people moving here for the first time outside of the Briar Creek area..lying to customers just to get them in I need a dive local place in my life, not these obscene chains.

If your taste buds crave Mexican cuisine and you have a soft spot for an authentic atmosphere, then La Cocina should be part of your choices. Can't say must about the atmosphere as I just pick up my meal. The staff's friendliness goes beyond the norm, making you feel welcome. And then there's the food – oh boy, what a treat! Even if you're not a Mexican cuisine expert, the flavors that grace your palate will leave you utterly impressed. They've clearly mastered the art of crafting dishes that dance with authentic Mexican tastes. If you're in search of a place that promises a delectable meal served with a side of warm hospitality, La Cocina is where you need to be.

We thought it was going to be out new #1. After hearing so many good things from a friend. Our experience was different. After 2 separate visits I can say this is nothing special. Standard fast food Mexican. The salsa tasted store bought and the entries all tasted the same. This is not a place we will go back to. So the hunt continues for that quality elusive Mexican restaurant

Food was not the absolute best, but it was all quite good. The most notable aspect was how generous they were with the fajita meats. It was easily 1.5-2 times the portions you typically see elsewhere. Overall a great place for a family meal.

The Food and Drinks are always SO DELICIOUS! I’m lucky to have found this place because so many restaurants on this side of town are hit or miss. But THIS ONE hits just right every single time. I highly recommend trying the fajitas if you don’t know what to get. That is my go to! The service is phenomenal. The folks on the staff really have set up a welcoming family feeling atmosphere.
