We saw photos of the food served her online and decided to stop in to eat. My husband, 4 children, and myself were all blown away by how amazing the food is here. I got pambazo, my husband got the breaded chicken torta, kids got street tacos with rice and beans, and quesadillas. Everything was beyond expectation. The salsa is great but the avocado crema they serve is something special. It was so good that we asked if they sold it, and while it isn't an official menu item, our lovely waitress made it happen and we walked away thrilled.Truly a hidden gem and a place we will return to ASAP.

Food and service was great. I had the 4 taco special and my wife had the Guanajuato enchiladas. Both were excellent.

This is without a doubt the most slept on restaurant in Hickory. Authentic, high quality, and amazing customer service. It's become a standard rotation. We love this spot and I've heard their breakfast is amazing.

A very nice place, and the staff very friendly and fast service, I don't have photos, we ordered takeout and everything was very delicious and if I will eat at la cosí uta again I loved their food….

Wheelchair accessibility: Well, you have access to the area for all types of people, inside the restaurant they have a lot of space between tables

I didn't like the food nor the bad service! Yes, stay in your case! The price is also expensive, the zapes are 4 and the burgers are 5. If you stay at home!

I really loved this place, but today service sucked. Waited 15 mins to even get ACKNOWLEDGED, no menus, nothing. I asked the waitress for MENUS, she says to give her a second, so fine .. then the phone proceeds to ring, she answers and TAKES THE ORDER. Like no, we were waiting 15 mins for a MENU. Had I known, I would’ve gotten better service over the phone , I would’ve done that. Mind you, there was 2 waitress and 5-6 Tables including my own, everyone else already had their food out. I have never experienced this here, so unacceptable. Even when it’s been busy, we’ve been acknowledged. Not this time, so disappointing. I really really loved this place.

Today, Saturday, December 16, I was in the kitchen, my family and I came in and they didn't even take us into account, we sat down and 15 minutes passed, it was as if we were unbelievable because neither of the two girls who are serving as waitresses paid attention to us, we better get up and go. .. How unkind we have been several times and they have never treated us like this...

The food was nasty and the staff rude including the manager-someone named Jean?! Saw employees smoking right outside the restaurant and cigarette butts everywhere. Smell was disgusting. Employees sitting in their cars blast Ing their music. Very unpleasant!
