Always delicious, hot traditional Mexican (American Mex:-) food......Budget-friendly prices. Close to interstate. Loved by locals! Quick, friendly seating......Small varied salsa bar.....My favorite is fajitas; others in family love their burritos and enchiladas. Lunch menu w/ great prices CAN be ordered at other times of day for ONLY an extra dollar.........

Stopped in a couple of times to get away from fast food restaurants. The service was adequate and the food was good but nothing special.

This is a great little find in a small town in North Carolina. Owners run it and do a great job. No Taco Bell, it's the real deal!

Enchiladas were ordered by 3 out of 4 in our group. Everything was well seasoned, generous portions and the beer was cold. The building was what appeared to be an old McDonalds. The new McDonalds was just next door. Very enjoyable restaurant and good service, by the family.

"Let's grab some dinner!" "Ok, but I don't have much time - where?" "Let's go to Cocula's - it's good and you can be out in plenty of time." And it's true every time.

One order of chicken soup & vege fajitas fed 4 of us. We were in a rush & they took care of us in a fast, friendly manner. Still the best Mexican in the area! Thanks Carlos.

Mexican food, clean and neat interior, service very good. Food for me was tasty and filling. Other in my party cleaned their plates as well so I'm hoping they feel the same.

Cocula is the best in the area, It is a clean restaurant. Excellent Service. Chips and Salsa on your table immediately. Good food. I like the Polo Fondido (Chicken in a Cream Sauce with rice and sala also warm Tortia). Many great combinations on the menu.
