Great news! Park guests who find themselves craving an authentic Mexican meal have a new spot to check out at Universal Plaza. Cocina Mexicana is now open at Universal Studios Hollywood, and you’re going to want to try everything on the menu.

Wet Chicken Burrito

What can we say about this burrito that isn’t already clear from the photo? It’s irresistible! This one comes loaded with rice, refried beans, queso blanco, guacamole, lime crema, pico de gallo, salsa rojo, and juicy, flavorful chicken.


Cocina Mexicana Restaurant - Taco plate

In case you’re craving tacos (you know, like everyone does pretty frequently, because tacos are amazing), Cocina Mexicana has you covered two ways. We have traditional chicken tinga or ground beef soft tacos topped with delicious queso fresco and lime crema.

Taco Salad

If you like your tacos in salad form, we also have a perfect blend of lettuce, refried beans, pico de gallo, queso fresco, and avocado ranch for you. Each salad includes a crispy, flour tortilla and comes with your choice of protein: beef, chicken, or Impossible (vegan!) chorizo.


Cocina Mexicana Restaurant - Buñuelo plate

The only thing more joy-inducing than great Mexican food might be the desserts. Cocina Mexicana offers a very popular Mexican sweet treat, buñuelos (accompanied by a delicious cajeta caramel dipping sauce). Other options include a decadent tres leches cake, or juicy and sweet pineapple drizzled with a flavorful Tajin infused agave nectar.

There’s also Frozen Margaritas for guests ages 21 & up – available in Mango, Strawberry, or Classic Lime! So next time you’re here at the Park, be sure to stop by Universal Plaza on the Upper Lot and visit Cocina Mexicana for lunch or dinner (or both). This food is so good, we think you’re going to taco ‘bout it for a while!
