We stopped at the Rockwall Mi Cocina for lunch and were surprised and disappointed in the quality of the food. We both had the Chicken Rico salad and the lettuce and bacon were cold, not room temperature cold but straight out of a very cold refrigerator cold. If you are going to reuse bacon from the previous day at least... More

I was traveling through town to have lunch with a good friend. When I asked him where we should go he suggested this place. My friend always knows the best places to eat so I was very excited to it. As always he was right. The food was very good. The service was just as good. I had the fish... More

If you come to Dallas, TX and you want to experience a very good Tex Mex fusion, Mi Cocina is a must! They cook all their meals with fresh vegetables and meats, their guacamole is awesome and my favorite and very common dish is sour cream chicken enchilada. Theirs is so yummy, the sour cream sauce is the best one... More

Met up with about 16 friends for a birthday party on Sunday evening. Service was top-notch and the food was fantastic! We had the guacamole followed by the Spinach enchiladas, portions were so large, my wife and I shared our meal. Plenty of salsa and chips and with drink refills, we really enjoyed our evening on the patio. Highly recommended... More

The restaurant is very beautifully designed and was very crowded the night we dined. Service was good, but nothing special. Our drinks were average at best - watered down, light on taste and expensive. My $10 cubano mojito could just as well have been a glass of flat Sprite or 7Up. The chips and salsa were nice and fresh. Most... More

My husband and I had lunch here last Saturday. We had skipped breakfast so I think we were the very first customers of the day. Staff was super friendly and quick with bringing chips & salsa, drink refills & our meals. I ordered the spinach enchiladas topped with fresh vegetables- it was fabulous! Not overly cheesy which I hate when... More

The food here is always well presented. I get the feeling the chef here actually TASTES it before sending it out. The brisket tacos here are better than any DFW location. Always tender, always well seasoned. Never stringy or hard to bite out of the taco. Guacamole is second only to home. Best Nachos you can buy out. Yes, the... More

My husband and I respectfully disagree with other reviews that the food is bad...we thought it was great grant it neither one of us tried their "tex-mex" dishes. The tortillas taste homemade, the pico was some of the best we've ever had (and that's A LOT), the brisket tacos were melt-in-your mouth good even though my order didn't come with... More

Wow! This is sooo my new Tex- Mex place. Since moving to the area we have searched for something this good and I found it in Mi Cocina. Love the food, atmosphere, and service.
