About Us

Our Story

La Cocina is a family-owned establishment born from years of the Villalpando brothers helping their mother with her food service business while living in Guanajuato, Mexico. They decided to bring a taste of their hometown to the residents of North Carolina after their move to the states. The flagship location in Mebane, was born from this idea in 2000. La Cocina has continued to expand – to now 11 locations through their expertise and dedication to bringing the best Mexican cuisine in the area.

At La Cocina, it is our goal to offer our customers the most authentic Mexican foods as possible with friendly service in a warm and inviting atmosphere. We're passionate about cooking the best Mexican food and it's a dream come true to open our restaurant so we can share this passion with the community. From the day we first opened our doors, we've made a promise to ourselves and to our customers to serve the most fresh and delicious guacamole and tacos using only the best ingredients. We continue to uphold this promise by making sure that every dish that leaves our kitchen is the best it can be. Our Mexican food is both filling and delicious and will leave you rubbing your belly with satisfaction! 

We take great pride in being able to provide a comfortable family restaurant to our community. Enjoy the great music that we have playing in the background of our restaurants. At La Cocina, we do our best to accommodate you and your family! Our menu features authentic Mexican fare such as Tacos and Burritos and other traditional dishes using our own family recipes. We encourage you to explore our website and our menu, but most importantly, give us a try! If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us. We look forward to serving you!
