The Alamance area essentially has two major Mexican chains that divides people. Either you're a La Fiesta person or a La Cocina person. Be forewarned, this review comes from a La Cocina person's perspective. Great food and service and the best in my opinion. And try the wings. People will look at you strange for ordering wings at a Mexican... More

Not a really good experience here. Seems if you are a regular here you get attention, us not so much. Waitress came by , we weren't ready and did not see her again for 15 minutes, wife had to go up front to clarify some menu questions. Overall, food was typical salty brown goo. Not going back.

In and out in under 20 minutes.... if that's really what you're looking for. We usually like to hang out for a little bit - and the staff is ok with that too. Friendly, smiling faces and tasty (always hot) food!

I ate here with my family hoping for some good authentic Mexican food. We were seated quickly, and the server was nice, although too quiet to understand well. The place was pretty busy, so I was excited to try it out. I ordered a tamale, burrito, and enchilada combo with an horchata to drink. My girlfriend ordered a combo with... More

I was not particularly impressed with the food here (I had the Fish Tacos), but judging by how busy it was on a Tuesday evening I must be in a minority.

This is the first time I have been to the new location. Very impressive, larger, fresher and cleaner! Quick sit down and the same fast service, perfect for a fast lunch. They have a ton of special lunches for $6.50, very good value. While it is quick, it is unfortunately a bit bland, not very spicy. I had the Chili... More

We celebrated a birthday with friends. First time to visit and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the dishes and attentiveness of the staff. We didn't wait for service or seating yet it was busy. Would definitely return when in the area.

Used to be the best Mexican food in town - but no more. The food came out too quickly indicating to me that things are prepared ahead of time. Chicken quesadilla had zero flavor, and I mean Zero flavor.

La Cocina is dependable, but honestly, not our favorite Mexican restaurant in Mebane (or Hillsborough). Very good service, though.
