La Cocina is excellent service, food and atmosphere. We go there about once a week. Always greeted with a smile. Favorite dish is the enchiladas tapatios.

We found this restaurant on Tripadvisor while we were in the area. It didn't disappoint! I had enchiladas rice and beans. And my wife had fajitas. The seasoning and flavors on both were so good and very unique to this place. The margaritas were very good and the cucumber martini was delicious. Thanks for the suggestion!

Once again, at the risk of sounding like a groupie, we stopped by La Cocina after Christmas celebrations at Ponte Winery. Never ceases to amaze me that even at the lat 9:30PM hour they dish it out with the best service and consistent quality, taste, presentation and price. If you don't try La Cocina...you're loss! Highly recommended again, and again..

Great food great drinks and a very friendly owner. Only issue was that service was not so great and a bit slow. The delicious food made up for it. Reasonably priced too

I went there with my family on a Tuesday evening for dinner. It was crazy busy and we had to wait about 15 minutes for a table. But, it was totally worth it. We started with the chips and guacamole. The chips came out hot and fresh and the guacamole was prepared at the table and fresh and delicious. I... More

Wouldn't thought to try this place in a strip mall if it hadn't been for the reviews on Trip Advisor. So glad we did. Very flavorful without being spicy or greasy. Loved our waitress Maria!

Always looking for good Mexican food and tried this place based on the good reviews. It was busy but we went early enough to grab a table quickly. Started off with some fresh guacamole prepared table side to order with tomatoes, onions and cilantro accompanied by some spicy salsa and fresh chips. Delicious. Ordered a classic margarita on the rocks... More

I looked up a Mexican restaurant on the Tripadvisor app and this came up. However, it didn't come up high on the list, but it should have. I had the Enchilada Tapatias. 2 grilled chicken enchiladas with mixed vegetables on a sizzling skillet like fajitas with tomatillos sauce and cheese. Excellent! Great flavor and just the right amount of spice.... More
