This is a very nice, locally owned place. We love to go there for breakfast, as do a lot of locals. Good food, service and prices.

Had a terrific meal Saturday at La Cocina. The combination plate was absolutely delicious. I have become a fan of New Mexico's red chili!!! Chef did a great job.

Smothered burrito was huge! They have a unique take on their chili rellanos. Absolutely fantastic, perhaps the best I've had. Green sauce is spicy and flavorful. Around 10 to 12 bucks a plate. They even throw in some killer sopapillas
