Cocina served up good Mexican in a pleasant setting. Frequented by locals and visitors alike, Cocina is a counter-service spot. Excellent chips; four or five self-serve salsas, and an ice cream bar for desert! What could be better?

We thought the food was okay but you couldn't tell by the constant flow of people standing in line waiting to order their meals! They have a variety of dishes that are delivered to your table. Very friendly service and reasonable prices.

We had lunch here. There is a chip and salsa station. Some of the salsas are pretty hot but they do warm you. The "small" burrito plate with 2 sides is a lovely portion; try the Anasazi beans! I found the burrito to be completely...More
