Lackluster would be the best word to describe the overall experience. The salsa was eh. The neat queso was ok, but really thin. No combination plates. Husband got Maria's Enchiladas. They were just ok. I got the quesadillas. Just ok as well. It was not a full plate Rice and beans were eh as well. We don't plan on going... More

La Cocina is a hidden delight in a small strip mall in Round Rock. It’s a cozy, unassuming place with very good service and a solid menu – one page of Mexican dishes, and another of Italian plates. The chef is Mexican and his wife is Italian, and they both brought their family favorites to the table. The tomato sauce... More

I've heard about La Cocina for years, but finally tried it with my family recently. The menu is pretty much half/half Mexican/Italian. Unfortunately, that's the real trouble -- it seems that they don't do either cuisine effectively enough to convince us to come back. The restaurant is in a strip mall, and though they've tried to liven it up, the... More

My daughter wanted Italian and I wanted Mexican Food so this was a great compromise. We had the best of both worlds! She had her Lasagna which was awesome! I don't remember her ever finishing a serving when we eat out but she cleaned her plate. The Guisada and Tilapia were tasty as well. Looks are somewhat deceiving I didn't... More

Queso, good. Chips, good. Salsa, good. Poblano and chicken enchilada special with chipotle cream sauce, good. Sangria, ok. House Margarita, ugh - cheap tequila alert. Seated right away at 7:30 for 2 on Friday night.

First of all, the Chicago pasta was fantastic. Great taste with a little "hot zip" to it. BUT...the prices were high, the portions average size, and you had to pay extra if you wanted garlic bread. All you get for free is chips and salsa on the table. The house salad for $5.00 was average in taste and size, comprised... More
