“I will start off this review by saying this is one of my most frequented restaurants. It was near where I lived for 6 years, cheap, tons of food, and friendly service
. This place doesn't have the most amazing Mexican food on the planet, but it’s pretty solid…Their salsa is really good though. Not ketchupy. Knowing what to order here is also helpful… get fajitas or chile verde. The chile verde… it’s delish.”
“Great Mexican food and service”
“Salsa runs thick through my pale white veins. I'm a fan of Mexican food, not always the Utah variety. But sometimes if you look hard enough through the snow and clouds of the Wasatch there shines a bright light in Mexican food
like La Cocina Mexican Restaurant.
Utah Mexican food often lacks Mexicaness... The high altitude must keep locals from liking a lot of spice and sometimes any flavor at all. La Cocina Mexican Restaurant’s recipe book
tastes like it was cooked up on the windswept prairies of Texas not the spice free hills of Utah.
I almost always get the tacos, their chicken and carne asada tacos are great. They're served in a soft shell and they're usually dripping with flavor (or maybe its grease?). And like all taco plates should be, they're loaded up with not one, not two, but three giant tacos. They're loaded up with cheese
and there's lettuce, tomatoes and guacamole on the side to garnish them with. Like all proper Mexican dishes, there is Mexican rice and RE-FRIED BEANS!! on the side. Did I mention they have re-fried beans? Don't give me that "they aren't fresh" bit, re-fried is the best and as far as I'm concerned the only way to get your beans at a Mexican restaurant.
I swear they have a whole menu full of stuff
but I get the tacos every time. I know I've seen enchiladas, salads, and the whole other ensemble of Mexican food. They have a mean looking cold case up front full of a variety of beers. Matter a fact, their bottled beer selection for a table service restaurant in the burbs is actually pretty impressive…Thankfully they have a green salsa that is awesome. The chip bowls are small but thankfully they keep them coming if you keep eating them.
Sometimes you find little gems like La Cocina Mexican Restaurant
in the unlikeliest of places like a side street in Cottonwood Heights. I give it an A in my book and it’s a shining spicy light in the sad flavorless world of most Utah Mexican restaurants.”
