I liked the food served here more than your typical Mexican chains like Chipotle and others. We tried the Chicken Flautas and they were done really well. The guacamole and sour cream too were nice. Would definitely come back sometime

This place looks like a sit-down restaurant from the outside, but it's not! It's counter service, kinda like Pei Wei, but Mexican food. Good Mexican food. REALLY good Mexican food. I had enchiladas - excellent! My kid had quesadillas, he loved them. My husband had the wild boar tacos and wanted to go back the next day. The mojito was... More

Food is fresh but not served at an appetizing temperature. Very prompt and gracious service. I ordered Tortilla soup and found it very uninteresting and bland. The salsa and chips are nice but do not have an authentic taste.

Not what I expected, this is more like a fast food restaurant than anything else. You order at the register when you enter, given a number and drink cup to get your own drink, unless it is beer. The chips and, wonderful, dip is brought to the table, when your food is ready it is also brought to you. We... More

Mi Chula's has to be one of the BEST midrange Mexican restaurant! First of all, you order your meal at counter and they deliver your food to your table. They do not offer full table service. What they don't offer in table service, they make up in many areas. 1) Friendly -- this is one of the most friendly restaurants... More

I have to agree with other reviews. The food is very good, from the fish tacos to the tortilla soup to the salads. The salsa and thin, non-greasy chips are excellent. But it's also true that for the price we paid, it's more of a sit-down place. We had a group of 5 and a round table would have been... More

My favorite Mexican restaurant in Southlake. They have awesome fresh, thin, tortilla chips, and the best salsa around. My favorite brisket tacos too! They are in Southlake Town Square, but across the street from the main mall area, across the parking lot from Nordstrom Rack. If I am being totally honest though...they have terrible pre-mix margaritas. Skip the calories and... More

Salsa has a nice smokey kick. The only complaint i woud have... The chairs are dirty. This place is fast casual. Has a nice... More

We regularly visited the location on Preston Road over in Plano prior to its closing. We decided to visit this location as we were in the area. I hate it but we were greatly disappointed. They are charging table service prices for order at the counter service. It's just not acceptable. The restaurant was clean, the food was good, the... More

There is no shortage of Tex-Mex competition in Southlake. So it is surprising to me that a place that is just so-so can survive. Non-existent service, average Tex-Mex, and a parking lot location are not the ingredients for success. Yet, Mi Chula chugs on. Expect the usual Tex-Mex fare here. Nothing fancy, nothing memorable either. Good for families with picky... More
