“I want you to feel that you’re in our backyard and we are taking care of you.”
– Jo Schneider, Owner

Tuesdays for Tucson
La Cocina supports the community and local non-profits by hosting Tuesdays for Tucson where a select non-profit is brought in to La Cocina to share with the community what they are about.
10% of the sales during dinner go to the non-profit. Dinner hours are 5PM-10PM.
