Being from Texas and a vegetarian, I have yet to find a great mexican food place in New York City, until now! I have lived here for over a year now, and finally I stumbled onto La...


Used to be great Mexican food, but the last couple of times have been horrible especially last night. Ordered a chicken burrito and was served chicken fajita. When I told the wait...

2 For 1 Margaritas and Fantastic Food 8/8/2005

La Cocina, a tiny Mexican-themed hole in the wall, located on 85th between Broadway and Amsterdam, is perhaps the best value you will find in Manhattan! Their menu is broad, offering a number of different choices of burritos, tacos, and all the traditional Mexican garb. The portions are mid-sized (you walk away content), and minutes after taking your seat, a bottomless plate of fresh-baked, homemade nacho chips and AMAZING salsa (that is free!) arrives in front of you. Prices range between $8 and $15 (and few that are higher in range) for entrees and $5 to $10 for appetizers (which are large enough to pass as an entree, in many cases). The BEST part of La Cocina is their 2 for 1 Frozen Margarita special. They have various flavors, offer salted or unsalted rims, and are dangerously good! (2 turns into 4, very quickly)... The service *can* be slow (they are a bit understaffed during the summer), but the wait staff is generally friendly (the bar staff is great!). I highly recommend La Cocina to any New Yorker looking for good food at a great value. more
