Our family had been enjoying LaCocina for years. Great service and excellent food! Our favorite dishes are the Jolisco Special and Arandas Cheese Steak. The queso and fresh chunky guacamole both are must haves as well.

I can't say enough about La Cocina! We went there on Cinco de Mayo with a packed restaurant and got our great food quickly! EVERYTHING in the restaurant feels authentic wherever you sit. The tables are decorated and the walls are painted with Mexican art!...More

Good specials, good food and good margaritas. Oh, and good guacamole. Food is unique and not "American Mexican". Excellent customer service.
