La Cocina was excellent! We have eaten here many times before and love it! Fish taco plate and Shrimp taco plates are very delicious. Generous helpings of tacos, beans and rice. Great Salsa and chips!! Very affordable for what you get! Recommend this restaurant to everyone!

We catered party of a party with chips and salsa and rice from Economica. They were all great and very well received. We love their salsa so much. They had the food ready on time and helped load it in my car. A very good experience.

This is my go-to lunch spot for Chico. Their supreme tacos are the best in town imho. It gets pretty packed during lunch time but not too bad. I would say it's really good authentic Mexican food.
