First night in ToC. Asked a local for a suggestion and were directed to La Cocina. Had a very good evening. The margaritas were very good. Our Mexican meal was good but not great. The salsa was outstanding and our waiter was exceptionally attentive. We eat out enough to know the vagaries of any restaurant meal but don't understand the... More

Thank you for taking the time for a review We are also known for excellent steaks.. another one of my favorites is the sliced beef sandwich we are using seared Tenderloin ! The most popular mex combo is the #3 .. but being a New Mexican I always get a red enchilada with an over easy egg. More

This is the best place to eat in the area. I have dined here for 20 plus years. I recommend this place to anyone that asks.it has a beautiful atmosphere, beer, music, steaks, home made chili, and huge sopapillas. The price is great for the amount for food you get. I hope you go and enjoy your experience as much... More

We are seated in booth by a young lady who has no idea the booth is filthy ( looked like some kids had a big party on the... More

They had some staffing issues for a few years here but they are as good as they used to be which is pretty great. I would recommend the supreme burrito or the green enchiladas but everything I've ever tried there was good.

I have been here several times because the place is a favorite for locals who drink. The menu has some choice, and I've seen families pull up and there is room for children.

We both ordered the ala carte ground beef and cheese enchilada stack with half green chile and half red chile. We liked the green better and would skip the red next time. The food and drinks were tasty reasonably priced, and the service was excellent!

I ate here with two friends this past weekend. They were not very busy and I was disappointed we had to wait to be seated and then wait for what it seemed like they decided who was going to wait on us. After these long waits, we had a young man who was an excellent waiter. I ordered chile rellenos... More

Plenty of cheap, filling, basic Mexican food. Many combination plates at around $10. Beers as low as $2.99. Quick service. Location is right off I-25.

Recommended by Sierra Grande Lodge restaurant which was closed between lunch and dinner. Excellent outcome - great Southwestern Mexican cuisine and wonderful service. Very accommodating. Had the best pork burrito ever - pork was so wonderfully tender and flavorful - never thought to order pork but what a wonderful surprise - how did the chef make is that tender? Can... More
