We went there for dinner. The food was good and very fresh. My husband had shrimp and chicken fajitas and I had grilled chicken soft tacos. We also had the Queso dip. Our waitress Emily was very good. We would recommend this place for sure. Thanks!

Arrived in Asheville, read various reviews on Trip Advisor, and chose Coculamas it was close to our hotel. Do you love the feeling you get when you "wing it" and end up a winner?! Not a fancy place but that is the only drawback. As others have stated, the menu was vast and the service excellent. You feel appreciated the... More

Unlike other Mexican style restaurants, the ingredients are fresh and the food is prepared with as little cooking oil as possible. The meal didn't weigh me down for hours and hours--as some Mexican style food can. The portions vary--even for the same dish, but are generally generous. Wide variety of salsa chip dips. Excellent for lunch. A favorite of motorcyclists... More

This is an authentic Mexican restaurant located outside of Asheville proper, just off of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Menu is huge, as are the portions. Four of us could have easily split two entrees. Service was nice.

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 both had Shrimp Chimichanga. I had refried beans and son had rice with it and both came with salad w/guacamole,... More

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. They are fast to get your food out but while you wait there is a free salsa bar that satisfys... More

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.
