Went here on an office outing for lunch and their specialty tacos are amazing. The beer battered fish taco, cheeseburger taco, and others are incredible. Also the salsa was very good as well.

My biggest appeal to this restaurant is that they cater to my allergies and take them seriously. They were willing to create a dish just for me that had no gluten or soy. I am a regular customer now and plan on being one for a long time! If you have gluten and soy allergies, order the Julia's Gluten Free... More

I'm a vegetarian so beans are near and dear to my heart lol. Most places have watered down bland refried beans but Mi Cocina de Amor packs in a punch of flavor in everything they create! We always suggest MCDA to people and it becomes one of their regular spots. Oh and I have to mention their chipotle pineapple margarita!... More

Never been to Mi Cocina de Amor but my wife and I and a couple friends gave it a shot for Charleston WV restaurant week. A great choice by us. The apps were fried green tomatos and lobster & shrimp bisque. Both amazing and tons of flavor. Our entrees were brisket tacos and shrimp and grits. Omg they both were... More

We've visited twice, and both times were spectacular. We love the margaritas and the shrimp and fish tacos. The ambiance is special too; it's a little place with wonderful sugar skull decorations everywhere. We'll definitely be back!
