So I've eaten at both of the La Cocinas in Battle Creek and this one hands down is the better of the two. The food is always cooked with haste and 9 times out of 10 I haven't waited longer than ten minutes to get food. A few of the bench seats the tables feel extremely low and you're towering... More

Thought this would be great new place for friends that never ate there. Well they had terrible meals. I would never take them back or anyone.

This place is great! Truly feels authentic with Mexican paintings all over and has Great food. Highly recommend Mexican rice, white queso dip, and the fajitas (have never gotten fajitas here because they're very expensive but they always smell and look great!)

The food was very good but the service was terrible. The waitress stood around more than anything. We waited for her to take our drink orders then after we got our food we didn't see her again and when we did see her, she was standing around. Horrible service.

We go to La Cocina about once a week! My boyfriend and I generally split an order or the Chicken Fajita Nachos, and we're both full. Their chips and salsa are delicious, and I love their guacamole. The Enchiladas Jalisco are also fantastic. I don't think I've had anything here that I DIDN'T like.

Our family had been enjoying LaCocina for years. Great service and excellent food! Our favorite dishes are the Jolisco Special and Arandas Cheese Steak. The queso and fresh chunky guacamole both are must haves as well.

I can't say enough about La Cocina! We went there on Cinco de Mayo with a packed restaurant and got our great food quickly! EVERYTHING in the restaurant feels authentic wherever you sit. The tables are decorated and the walls are painted with Mexican art! GO HERE!!!

Good specials, good food and good margaritas. Oh, and good guacamole. Food is unique and not "American Mexican". Excellent customer service.

Went out for my buddy's birthday and had an okay time. I do like the authentic food, but what I really wanted was a chicken quesadilla with just cheese. I asked for that and they had to bring over someone else to explain they have 6 different quesadilla's. I said give me the one that was chicken and cheese. Simple... More

Girlfriend and I have eaten at the Beckley Road location several times. I thought the food there OK, good value, not outstanding. But good margaritas at a good price so get your smile on! this location is bigger inside than it looks outside and never had to wait to take a seat. Table service could be quicker. Don't be in...
