We took our nephew and his fiance there from out of town because they had read the reviews on Yelp. Nuestra Cocina delivered!!! Where do I start? The tortilla soup was amazing as was everything we ordered. The flavors are so rich and tantalizing. Truly...More

The entrees are great but I can’t get past the tacos, ceviche and sopes! And their spicy margaritas are delicious. I recommend to friends that you can get a truly great meal for cheap here by simply ordering multiple items off of the appetizer list.

Upon my partner's request, our waitperson talked us through his favorites, an octopus appetizer among them. Stunning. Deep. Delicious. Perfect. Everything else we ate (my fish, my partner's pork, the cheesecake we shared) was spectacular.

Depends on what time you get there No more than 20 minutes I get there at opening time and take my time and enjoy watching the plates go out while I sit at the bar
