Some saying the best Mexican food in town. After hearing a number of good reviews about this place; it was time to check out La Cocina Economica for lunch.

Located on the corner of E. 9th & Wall Street, the last time i was at this restaurant location it was a delicatessen.

When a friend and i arrived around 11:45pm the restaurant was already full of people. Noticing one small table in the corner available, luckily we were able to grab it.

You order from a walk up counter and when your food is ready they call your name. Greeted with a friendly smile and hello, I ordered 4 tri-tip tacos at a great price of $1/taco. My friend ordered the veggie Burrito.


While we waited the customers kept rolling in. Our wait time was only about 10 minutes. The dining room has multiple windows which keeps you from feeling closed in.

I’ve heard from others that the shrimp tacos are great here but i was really impressed with the tri tip tacos for a buck a piece. My friend had been here before and said his burrito was good as usual.

So, if your looking for really good cheap Mexican food you might want to try a Cocina Economica lunch or dinner, Restaurants Chico highly recommend this business.
