Good Mexican Food and Drink

MiCocina is above average food and service but slightly on the expensive side. Margaritas here are very good... and strong. Salsa and Chips have always been fresh for us and the rest of the food tasty. We have sat at the bar and not been overwhelmed with the service there, but typically it is... read more

My wife and i were walking around Southlake Town Square and decided Mi Cocinas sounded good. We decided to sit on the patio and enjoy the wonderful weather. We received chips and salsa right away but didn't see a waitress for water or drinks until I complained 20 minutes later. The two tables around us were also not happy. Once... More

Friendly staff, typical Tex-Mex trying to pass for authentic. Full marks for effort, though, as they do try hard to please. Unfortunately as a native Mexican my standards are maybe a bit higher.

AI was part of a group of 8 business people that went for lunch. There was no wait on a Friday. I really enjoyed the easy of the Tacos “De Brisket”. The rice and avocado salad were also tasty and fresh. Others really enjoyed their food too, such as the Rico salad with chicken, Tacos Mi Tierra, and enchiladas. Very... More

Mi Cocina is one of the bat Tex Mex restaurants around. The food is deliciously consistent and has been for the last 25 years since I ate at the original one in Highland Park Village when I was at SMU. the Lucy Changa is my favorite. Make sure you have a beverage before you eat the chips and salsa because... More

Very impressed with this place. I've never been in an upscale Mexican restaurant and it was great. Had an appetizer of guacamole and white cheese dip and they were both perfect. For the main course I had street tacos ( can't remember the formal name ) they were great and plenty of food on the plate. Also the children's menu... More

Went there for a group business dinner and the service and food is excellent. Nice modern upper end Mexican restaurant in a hip area of southlake. Loved the chips and salsa and guacamole to start and had the signature sangria for my drink that was excellent. For dinner had the best tender steak fajitas that I have ever had!!

We're bias, since we've been going to MiCo's every Friday night for the last 3 years, but we can't imagine not having it in our family routine. The food is good, the libations are excellent, and the service/management is fantastic. Mambo Taxi is the highlight, but try the new Chorizo Queso, made table-side. It's a meal disguised as an appetizer.

This is a slightly more upscale Mexican food experience. I haven't been disappointed by any of the dishes yet. I also recommend the Mambo Taxi drink, it gets the job done.
