Early dinner after a visit to the Denver Botanical Gardens. The meal was great. Food hot, and delicious. Service was fast. Great place to have very good Mexican food. Green chili was outstanding. You will enjoy the food. The dining room is a bit dated...More

We go to La Cocinita often even though it is a hole in the wall, but the food is consistently delicious, no matter what we order. The service is friendly and it feels comfortable. The place could be updated but the food is great!

Great place for margaritas and fresh salsa. Fajitas are a must have along with the chili rellanos! Sometimes a wait but always worth it. Great family environment as well.

This is one of our go-to Denver stops for Tex-Mex cuisine. The plates are generous, budget=priced, and have just the right amount of spice. The tamales are special favorites, and we often take a dozen or two (frozen) with us to eat at home.

True to it's name,this is like walking into a Mexican family "kitchen". Very informal atmosphere and service, so I will rate with that in mind (not a crystal & linens 5*, but definitely deserves a 5 @ this level) . We could tell there were...More
