Son and I had an appointment at VA Hospital and were on the way home at lunch time when we found Cocula. I'm not big on Mexican food but my son loves it so I said we'd try it.

We are visiting Asheville for the first time from Texas. This little Mexican food place puts many of my Texas favorites to shame. All the food is homemade, large portions, delicious, great Margaritas and very sweet and nice wait staff.

This is one of the local Mexican Restaurants and the food is fairly good. Service is very good and quick. The employees are friendly and it isn't too noisy so one can visit with friends and family

Food is very good, service is very good, prices are very good. We eat lunch and dinner there, often. Our go-to Mexican place in Asheville. Has vegetarian plates, meat plates, pretty much everything. Can't find a web site for it though.

This restaurant was close to the hotel we were staying and didn't want to drive all over town so we gave it a shot. The service was good as was the food and at a reasonable price.

We were going to the place down the road but are SO happy we gave this place a try! The margaritas are not too sugary, the queso is super thick and yummy and the entrees are not too greasy -- perfectly cooked and seasoned -- authentic indeed! Happy and efficient service, too! We will return again and again!:):):)

I travel to Mexico often and have even lived there, this place rocks! It is very authentic and the sauces they offer are over the top. Clean and efficient, we went twice in a town that has many other great places to eat, we couldn't get enough. Friendly staff and nice eating area outside.

Thank andreabrysn
