Yum! But a little loud!

Delicious food, pretty good drinks, nice location, but the music played inside is too loud! 6 of us ate at Mi Cocina on a Saturday night. We only had to wait about 20 minutes for a table (we did not have reservations). We were sat upstairs... directly under a speaker. We looked around, there were... read more

We have never been disappointed in Mi Cocina. Our family even held a wedding rehearsal dinner here several years ago, and the service was fantastic....as always!

OK food, pleasant service, but the place is cavernous and just seems dingy. Management not attentive; spent more time talking to each other than working the floor. Key giveaway: Only one of the four highly visible world time clocks on the wall actually ran.

One of our favorite Mexican food restaurants (our other is Baja Taco). Nice atmosphere, great margaritas. They have the usual Tex-Mex but also some different menu items. Service and food are excellent.

Get the Mambo Taxi and the Brisket quesadillas. Mi Cocina offers some great Tex Mex food. Depending on when you go the service can be good or a tad on the slow side. The chips and salsa are the best around and are replenished quickly. The Mambo Taxi is a drink and is probably named for the two things it... More

Lot of choice in this world when it comes to Tex Mex in DFW but Mi Cocina never disappoints. They've been around for a long time for a reason. Their grub is higher end, but you also get your traditional mexi platters and very reasonable prices and awesome margs.

Eat here frequently, the food is consistently good, not always awesome. Wait staff is inconsistent as one would expect. Still, having eaten at 4 different Mi Cocina locations, Southlake is only in the middle. For Southlake though, it's top 2.

I visited this restaurant over the weekend while on a girls' weekend with family. We were told it would be a 15-minute wait, which turned into about 30 minutes. We finally got seated and ordered drinks. However, the waiter who brought us the drinks seemed very confused on which drinks went to which people. The chips and salsa were pretty... More

With a dozen or more Mexican restaurants in Southlake, you can do better than this one and for a lot less money. Average food, average service, above average prices.

Last week my family went to the Southlake location of Mi Cocina for a birthday. Mi Cocina is a favorite, as we like the margaritas, and the menu in general. We chose the Southlake location as it was closest to home in Colleyville. My wife, adult son and I entered the restaurant first and were immediately greeted and the hostess... More
