Food seems to be wayyy over cooked and overpriced for it. It used to be great but now everything we get is tough.

We happened on this place and were pleasantly surprised. The waiter was fun..and talked us into the BIG margarita... ( sadly wasted half of it ) My steak quesadilla was yummy with nice sides. The thin chips and salsa good too. Maybe we were just super hunger from riding the Silver Comet bike trail ?

Am not too sure what happened this evening but this was a pretty bad experience. We have eaten here before and had a great time. But tonight for some reason it was far from a good experience. Am not sure if our waitress was new or stressed or just not made to be a waitress. By the time she first... More

Food poisoning...twice. Will not go back to this location. The Acworth location, however, has never made the family ill. The food tasted fine, so we were all dismayed when we became violently ill 30 minutes after dining...twice.

After a previous bad experience, we returned with a 10% apology coupon in hand. Once again, the service was TERRIBLE. Our waiter took around 15 minutes just to acknowledge us. Then drinks were forever to arrive. He made a lame excuse proclaiming time and was off an hour. He couldn't blame the time change because it was in the opposite... More

La Cocina is consistant in many ways. It is always crowded (no reservations), very family oriented, attractive surroundings, a young energetic wait staff and very good food. The good news relative to the wait is their bar which specializes in margaritas ! As visitors to Dallas, we have been to La Cocina many times over the years. It is a... More

I liked it when all the employees were from either Mexico or somewhere in South America...gave it a more authentic atmosphere. It's now run and staffed by a bunch of young black and white kids. Didn't hear anyone speaking with even the slightest hint of a Spanish/Latino/Mexican/South American accent. Additionally, when I asked for hot sauce, they brought me Tobasco.... More

Quality of service and food varies each time, was much better and more reliable in the past. Huey Luey's in Hiram is much better.

The fried make your own burritos and the tacos pastor are great! We get this nearly every time we go! Portions are HUGE too! More that enough to share. Although we never share!

Pros: Tasty food. Great chips. Pleasant atmosphere. Good value. Health rating good (now). Cons: Food still arrives medium hot, not hot (temperature) the way it should. (last 2 visits, food was medium hot). Wait staff a bit slow. You don't get that "friendly" feeling like you used to before their health rating dropped so much. They are improving but they... More
