Tried for the first time and was pleasantly surprised - quick delivery with pleasant delivery guy, food was fresh and hot. I got the mofongo which was very tasty and my brother got a beautiful salad which he said was great. I'd order from here again.

This is my go-to and favorite delivery spot. Food is good, delivery is within an hour and prices are reasonable. Plus, I love mexican food so this is a FIND for me. I order from them at least three times a week. My favorite are the nachos, but also get the avocado omelette, the agave salad with quesadilla, the breakfast sandwiches, enchiladas verde and chicken tacos. All good and would recommend:) I've got nothing bad to say (for a change ha) ! Yep, five stars.

Ordered from here about 3 times now, and each time everything was fresh, delicious and nice-sized portions. Love that they have oatmeal all day. The steak burrito was too large to pick up; tasted great, but the steak pieces could have been a bit less fatty: won't take away a star for that, cos some folks think the fatty bits taste best. Their California wrap was great; so fresh. Bread pudding was good, I would definitely try a few more items to see what they do best.

Order here all the time. The nachos are amazing! 4 stars because the usually forget the dressing when you order salad. But I have dressings in the fridge so no big deal!
Posted 2 years ago by Matthew B.
The delivery was quick! However, when I ordered the burger, it was not as I would had liked it to be. It was an average burger with really hard to chew bread. The fries were okay and the tea was good. When I ordered breakfast, the waffle was really BAD I couldn't eat it but the sausage was tasty so I just had that with the coffee. Again the delivery was quick not sure I would order those items again.
Posted 2 years ago by Nikia D.
The menu is worthy of exploration. Trying different items has yet to disappoint. For a snack, order an assortment of empanadas.

So.. I usually go to this place and order just rice and beans which is simple but good. Today I decided to order a shrimp burrito-my specific instructions were to add avocado. I even called right after placing my order to "remind" them to include the avocado. My order arrived approx. 45 min later. Guess what- they didn't add the avocado. I tried eating the burrito anyway which was pretty mediocre. All the lettuce, tomato, and onion were on the outside- not included inside the burrito-who does that? Any who .... I called the place pretty upset to enlighten them of their mess-up. The manager said the avocados weren't ripe so that's why he didn't include avocado. (Lie?)
So basically I prob won't order from them again.
Posted 2 years ago by Kamira L.
Solid option in this area. Beef tacos are great and taste fresh, nachos are also a solid item (though I would recommend plain or with chicken over chorizo). Routinely takes about 45 minutes for delivery, despite only being 6 blocks away, but on occasion can take longer. Nevertheless, haven't had any major issues and they're pretty consistent, I would recommend ordering from them.

The food was delivered within the time specified in the app (about 40 minutes) and it was delicious! I ordered the same thing three different times to see if they were consistent and it was awesome each time. The delivery people are friendly as well. I will definitely continue to order from this restaurant.

My "salad" was avocados, onions, tomatoes, with grilled chicken on top. "What about lettuce!!?" You ask incredulously.
This salad was far too progressive for narrow minded leaves.
So but seriously I want lettuce when I order a salad.

I really only order 2 things from here: tacos and empanadas. They're both good….empanadas are slightly greasy and makes me queasy after 2nd piece but that's deep fried food for ya so even if my stomach complains, i'm not complaining.
Posted 3 years ago by Henry I.
The food is usually a hit. Sometimes the pernil can be a little dry. I also sometimes receive empty empanadas. Nonetheless, they're quick and reliably decent, at the very least.

I've ordered from here twice now. The delivery was super fast both times, maybe about a 30 minute wait. The first time I got the taco salad and it was interesting but delicious. I got the nachos this time and am extremely pleased. The smoothies are also really tasty. Give it a try!! It's definitely worth it!

Bland and salty!!! Flan was worst than store bought.. Never again.
Posted 3 years ago by Sharlene K.
Used to think that their mexican dishes, and the dominican breakfast, are pretty decent. However, I think that their customer service stinks. From the rude delivery man to the somewhat tolerable person who picked up the phone. Will not be ordering from here ever again. I will try the many other options in the area.

If La Cocinita was consistent they would get a five. I have ordered here several times and its always a crap shoot. Tonight we ordered the 1/4 chicken special and got a sorry excuse piece of chicken. My beef stew however, was amazing. The wait is always a long one and I wouldn't mind if I would get a decent portion. Very disappointed tonight and will probably go with another place for the 1/4 chicken special.

I order from here frequently. I love the empanadas. The fourth star is because of prompt delivery almost always. Otherwise, the food is very average, like much in the area. But it's absolutely edible, and I plan to continue ordering from here.

Tough to mess up a BLT, fruit and coffee but it was good. The chicken quesadilla and mozz sticks were ok. Probably won't order either again though either. Stick w/basics like club sandwich.

Delivery time is usually quick. Their burritos are phenomenal. Also, the Dominican breakfast is a great way to start any day.

The people giving this place more than 1 star must be the owner trying to offset all the bad experiences with this shit hole. Worst establishment ever. 2 hour delivery of un edible trash of food. I dont know how someone could respect themselves taking 2 hours to deliver and sending such shit for food. I hope this place closes down
Posted 3 years ago by Christopher S.
Not satisfied at all. Food is not the best, but worse, it comes to your door in sloppy prepared containers; takes the term "doggy bag" to a most literal echelon of meaning. Wont order from here again.
Posted 3 years ago by Oswaldo P.
Took over two hours to get to us. No idea why. When I called the place a very surly manager said it would be coming in 5 minutes but the then 30 minutes passed by. Once we got the food one of the containers had broken open and the entire bag was wet. Won't be ordering from them again and I suggest you don't either.
Posted 3 years ago by Brett M.
So far so good! I've ordered from here 3 times and each time the food has been delivered promptly and has tasted great!

do not order from them unless you like waiting over an hour for your food.
Posted 4 years ago by Robert S.
I've ordered from here before and liked the food. But not today. I waited for my food to arrive for an hour, and when it arrived, half of it was incorrect. When I called the restaurant about it they said they'd send me the right food right away. An hour and a half after that call and I still haven't received it, their excuse being that they are busy. So now it's been about 3 hours and I haven't gotten my food. Very poor customer service!

I just love their food, they aren't very careful with handling, my Tres Leches almost leaked through the container.

Everything I've ordered from here has been amazing! The codfish is so good! The burgers and nachos are great and the rice and beans are banging! They have given me the wrong drink twice but other than that, I am definitely a regular!

:If you order a diet soda because you can't drink sugary sodas, make sure you note to them that you don't want them substituting the sugary counterpart. Diet Coke instead of Diet Pepsi, I can handle. This can of Pepsi is going to sit in my fridge forever.
ETA: Just after I submitted this review, I opened my order -- a Texas burger deluxe with swiss, medium. The burger was cooked well-done, with no egg, the fries were nearly dark brown, there was no lettuce and tomato. The final nail in the coffin for what was already a deteriorating relationship with me and this place.
Not one part of this order was correct. I used to love ordering from this place, and I will now never do that again.

I ordered the steak with special sauce, and wasn't impressed at all. The chunks of beef were a bit dry, and there really wasn't much sauce at all. The yellow rice and red beans were the best thing on the plate. The absolute worst part of the meal was the burnt, inedible alcapurria. It was so hard you could crack a tooth on it! I give this restaurant 2 stars for the speedy delivery and the rice and beans, but wouldn't recommend it to others.

Posted 4 years ago by Allan M.
These were the worst nachos I have ever had! It took over an hour for them to deliver them and they had NO cheese and were cold. When I called to tell them the man who answered was incredibly rude and not helpful. He told me I need to order extra cheese even though I insisted that there was NO cheese on them to begin with. I told him I wanted my money refunded and he told me if I brought them back he would refund them. They have terrible customer service!! I would not recommend this place to ANYONE and will never order from there again.

I had a very delicious breakfast. I ordered bacon, sausage, eggs, and a belgium waffle. Everything was fresh and very good. The only thing was that they took 40 mins to come but I'll sacrifice that any time for food that is cooked well and tastes good.
Posted 5 years ago by Johnny N.
The food is really bland. I ordered from here a second time, just in case they were having an off night the first time. Second time was no better (it was overcooked and almost completely without seasoning) AND they forgot part of the order, promised to send it, and did not. I ended up having to call Seamless for a refund. NEVER AGAIN.

I found this establishment in seamless web and was impressed that I could order a belgian waffle in the area (love diners but hardly any diners in the area). I called the first time and the guy just answers "Hello?" Not Cocinita or anything. I tell him I would like to place an order and he tells me to hold. I hold for about 1 minute and then some genius (probably Mr Hello) picks up the phone and starts dialing...then hangs up on me. I called back and the person picked up the phone and hangs up. I called back and got a rude woman who picked up the phone and all impatient says "Hello?" with an attitude...like I'm an inconvenience to her or something. And again does not answer the phone with a greeting like "La Cocinita can I help you?". I told her what just happened and instead of saying something like "I/we apologize for the inconvenience, can I take your order now" she says 'Oh well I don't know". Unfortunately I cannot give a review about the food because I haven't gotten thru their lack luster customer service over the phone. I'd rather deal with Jimbos right down the street...you get more bang for your buck.

update 12.2.11 - horrible service today, slow, showed up at wrong address even though I CALLED them to and gave them directions. Items missing from my order. It's enough to make me never order from them again.
Posted 5 years ago by Allison M.
Customer beware: an irresponsible vendor; don't always have the food items in stock and call back anywhere between 15-90 minutest later to let you know. Other times, they substitute an item without calling!

I order delivery from here occasionally, always through seamless web. I have never had a problem. They always get the order correct, it is delivered within the time frame quoted (or quicker) and they come to my apartment door, usually without issue (my intercom doesn't work and this can be a problem with some deliveries). For food, I love the tacos (with cilantro and onions)! The rellenos de papas are also pretty consistently good.

Rapid, Friendly, Accurate. But Good NO. Roasted Chicken over cooked and hard in every dish. Quesadillas are not chunks of meat on flat bread! Cappucino/Soursop must have been from some fake drink mix. Too sweet and definitely not authentic items. Sole fish lousy frozen/heated trash. Philly Cheesesteak most decent of the items I ordered. Even it had been left to crisp in something that made both the bread and the meat have a hard edge throughout. I literally wet it and reheated it to make it more edible. But it was decently tasty beef. Yucca was done right! Red rice and beans were nice. Don't know how others are giving this place high ratings though with so many not-good items.
Posted 5 years ago by Charlia E.
the bread of the hamburger was too thin (the meat was good). Fried chips horrible!! Not hot, crunch and without salt. Platano fried was horrible!! too sweet, not well cooked. Nachos were quite good but too much cheese and chips inside were too full of sauce so impossible to stay up with cheese and meat. you need the fork to eat. I had a santo domingo girl so this is NOT good latin cook.

This is usual a "gimmie." You can never go wrong with the Mexican Wrap. I think what really makes it kick is the guacamole. The prices are a bit high for usual standards, but then again, it is probably just me. Food is very good.

Order a plate called Charbroiled 1/4 Chicken Special, even though the taste was good. The could be called Charbroiled 1/4 Rice Special, this was the smallest chicken I have ever seen. The food is not bad, tastes good. Their timing was excellent and the service from the person who made the delivery was incredible.

Every now and then I get the urge for Mexican...meaning like weekly. When I'm feeling too lazy to go out for it Cocinita Latina is my fav place to order from. Their super speedy delivery and friendly delivery guys just make it that much better. Delicious taco salads, amazing (like seriously amazing) fried chicken chunks (can't think of the spanish name), and the best rice and beans. I love this place.

I ordered a Mexican Wrap (plus tomatoes) and a coke from the fountain. The wrap was above par. The chicken was seasoned well and the ingredients were fresh. Although, judging by the consistency of the onion, they used the outer and more chewy layers of it. Unfortunately the delivery guy spilled half of the fountain drink on the way but the wrap was in a plastic container, so not a big deal. It was well worth the price, and the wait was tolerable (about 30 minutes).
Posted 7 years ago by Joshua S.
Badly cooked cheap meat, spilled coffee, and a small TBSP of dressing on the side instead of mixed with the salad.
