The La Cocina Restaurant offers very good food, especially good Steaks. Prices are a little higher than at any regular Outback or Texas Steakhouse, but the quality of the meat is also much better. I would recommend La Cocina Restaurant.

The food here is okay, we use to regularly eat there - not much competition in TorC. Now, however, they have actively begun to support the Copper Flat Copper Mine which will use enormous amounts of water and devastate our local economy. If La Cocina...More
