Definitely a good choice.

We've been eating at Mi Cocina since it was a strip-mall restaurant off of Church and Baseline. Family owned and operated, they expanded to a higher-end facility just off of Highland. Have had many, many meals there, and sampled a variety of their offerings. Their seafood dishes are great, their... read more

Lovely Decor but was not impressed with the quality and taste of the meal. Tacos are my favorite Mex food I order, but I do not understand why restaurants fry the tortillas so hard but not crispy. The tortillas were hard to chew. I was not impressed.

I recently checked out mi Cocina with my husband. The waitress was courteous and quickly took our order - a mature hispanic lady over 30 years old. The restaurant was clean and the food was tasty. I believe I ordered the chile relleno and enchilada. My husband likes meat and although the portion was not overly generous he definitely enjoyed... More

Let me say this - my husband and I live over an hour away from Mi Cocina, and when we have family come into town, we make the drive to Mi Cocina to share the fabulousness with them. Really great food, we are never, ever disappointed. They have a private room, the look of the place is really amazing, and... More

Located at their new location on Highland just off the 330, they serve good Mexican food at good prices with good service. Family owned and well run . Worth a visit.

Mi Cocina's has been in Highland for about 20 years or so and I have had a wonderful relationship with the owners since. The new version of the restaurant has a gorgeous patio with a lovely view of the mountains and the food is really good. Please, please, please try their Mexican shrimp cocktail! It is the bomb!

My friends and I enjoy eating at MiCocina at least twice a month. The food is always good and there is a nice selection. The service can't be beat. A family owned restaurant whose owners care about their customers.

If you like Mexican food this is your place. The food is great, service good, the atmosphere nice. The prices are average for this type of food in this area. We have been going there since they opened up on Church St.and it has remained a great at the new location.
