Stop in for lunch. Had the #1, which is 2 enchiladas with yellow rice and refried beans. $8.95 without salad, plenty of great tasting food. They serve free high quality chips & salsa before your meal. Didn't have any alcohol, but noticed they had an extensive menu of same. I was waited on by Reyna. Very prompt, attentive, cheerful. I...

the food is good but the waiters try to rush you out the door. I had put my fork down to take a drink and they tried to take my plate of food away. They stated that they thought I was finished eating - I had only taken 2 bites of my food. This has happened to me at all... More

There are plenty of restaurants in this area, but on this occasion I was looking for good, fast and informal food. The food was great but this review is about the service and the Double barrel Margaritas, which provided the icing on the cake :) a good choice for Mexican in the area.

Brisket nachos are not on the menu. (They should be). You can order them. They are the best nachos I have ever eaten. We order them every time we eat there.

Dinner is always delicious at Mi Cocina. Everyone loved their entrees and we had more than enough food to fill our bellies. Our servers were excellent and kept our glasses full. We dined with children as well and they had great selections for the kids.

We were a family of 7 including a baby, and the wait staff could not be nice. We started immediately with warm nacho chips and yummy salsa which was quickly replenished as soon as we removed the last chip. The food arrived quickly and all dishes were delicious. But mostly we appreciated the kindness of the staff concerning the baby... More

This restaurant is the standard for TexMex in the Dallas area. We visit here often and the staff is very good and well trained. I think that management could sell training services to other restaurants. Dallas has a lot of different styles of Mexican food, which I enjoy, but this is very straight forward and very good.

Stopped in with friends for dinner on a Sunday evening and were seated right away. Chips and salsa were very good. We all shared a large queso and gucamole both were tasty. The fajitas were wonderful as was the Tacos Carbon. I would visit them again if we are in town.

We got the chefs special- tacos al carbon. What a disappointment. Every bite was a bite into fat. The margaritas were nothing to edge about.
