I went to Mi Cocina my very first day in Dallas. I enjoyed the atmosphere of the uptown location. However I enjoyed the convenience of the MacArthur location. If you go you must have the mambo taxi. Happy Hour is the best.

The food and atmosphere were festive and I was very happy that I chose to go to MiCocina. I had the most delicious mango margarita!!! A definite repeat experience.

We visited here during a stay over for a Cowboys game. Pleasantly surprised with the choices we made ordering queso blanco, tacos al carbon, nachos with beef fajitas and house margaritas. Interestingly they use prime rib versus the flank steak we are used to. The beans were awesome! We had a ton of food and drinks for about 70 bucks... More

We visit Mi Cocina only when we do not want to drive to Gloria's. Mi Cocina NEVER has drink specials and the food is overpriced. On our last visit the service was very slow. I am so happy that Gloria's is popping up all around Mi Cocina locations. Perhaps this will put a fire under Mi Cocina to start having... More

An acquaintance and I went for a quick lunch at Mi Cocina one Saturday afternoon. I ordered my old faithful quesadillas and my acquaintance ordered fajitas but wanted to substitute shrimp instead of chicken. Apparently, this is a big deal at Mi Cocina--the manager had to be consulted before the waiter could make it happen. Sigh. Once the fajitas arrived,... More

Very laid back Tex-Mex style. Drink menu is a bit small. Food Menu looked great with plenty of different choices. We ordered the guacamole which was good in taste and portion. I had the brisket tacos - very bland beef and the taco shells were soggy. Prices are not that bad so I did not feel like I was robbed.... More

Service at this location is just brain dead. Not the usual mi Cocina bad attitude but bad like they were just hired before service. 15 bucks for a couple of tortillas with flavorless fajita beef. Insipid rice. Guac was ok.

Friday night. While the place was crowded at 6 p.m., service was attentive, and the food was good and abundant. The minor criticisms are that the side of corn tortillas were a bit stiff and that the server messed up my order.

I dined with a colleague at Mi Cocina (Irving) today. We enjoyed ourselves so! I saw a beautiful cocktail being delivered to a neighboring table and decided that I wanted one also. The name of the drink was 'Dilemma' and it was UM, UM GOOD...similar to their signature Mambo Taxi but with added liqueurs. I also had the Mama's Tacos... More
