The shrimp burritos at La Cocina are the best. I have been enjoying them for years. They even know my voice when I call in for take out. They are family oriented, friendly and reasonably priced. The fare is authentic Mexican food. We have had them prepare food for parties as well and everybody loved it. Kids meals are available... More

Order at the counter and tableside delivery. Three types of salsas, chips and hot carrots complimentary. Tacos, shredded beef and chicken are truly mexican style. Refried beans addictive.

We thought this was going to be more of a sit-down / served Mexican restaurant, but found it was a counter-serve restaurant instead. That's okay, but we weren't overly impressed with the quality or tastiness of the food, either. To us, it tasted rather bland. We would not go there again.

From the simple salsa recipes to the delicious meat and tortillas, La Cocina is number one. From the great staff to the quick service and the huge portions I highly recommend this place.Best food in town!

Hands down, the best Mexican food in Ramona. So what if they use Styrofoam plates and plastic forks. There food is what you go there for. Don't miss this restaurant when passing thru Ramona. Plenty of free parking.
