Bloody Mary's

I know that Mi Cocina is known for their margaritas(mambo taxi) but they make the best bloody mary. Spicy and savory. The mix they use is the key as well as mixing the ingredients before serving. The Mi Cocina bloody mary has almost replaced the margarita as my drink of choice.

It's a chain and they are all not the same quality-wise. In general pretty good. Read the menu carefully as the items are priced strangely.

Ate lunch with a coworker here. Meal was nice. The outdoor seating is great - nice view for the 'burbs. I would definitely eat here again.

Excellent variety of plates. Didn´t know what to choose but finally ordered "Mama´s Tacos" (Grilled fajitas with either chicken or beef in corn tortillas served with rice and sliced avocado salad. A lot of drinks to choose from such as Margaritas, Mambo taxi etc, A real nice place and very well attended. Definitely will go there again.

We waited only 25 minutes for dinner on a Friday evening. This place us huge, loud and very busy. Service is top notch. Nice menu with some creative variations. Food very fresh and delicious. Great drinks (but no beer on draft?).

Very busy atmosphere. Food was pretty good. I know I'm in the minority, but I don't get the big deal about this place. Mexican food isn't a huge deal for me, so maybe that's it. Very trendy.

Very nice restaurant for a chain, excellent food with value prices. They also make some fantastic margaritas. Try and sit outdoors-lakeside with a fountain in center if not too hot. Had the house chimichangas with beef, very well done. Severs are friendly and helpful. Lots of competition in area and this is Top 5.
