The corn chips is slightly thicker than most tex-mex places in the D/FW area. Most other tex-mex places the corn chips are so thin it have one one side or the chips are very greasy. I like the chips where they are slightly thick enough to dip into the chile con queso or in the guacamole with out breaking each... More

My first experience at a Mi Cocina was at the Irving location. It was horrible and painted my negative perception. So, I stayed away from all Mi Cocinas for years. And then, one day, I was "forced" into visiting the Southlake location. This one is just a few minutes from my house and is tucked away in the Southlake Town... More

I have recently eaten a delicious lunch here consisting of a delicious beef taco with an assortment of fresh veggies and cheese and a chicken burrito with a delicious sauce. A few days later, we went for a late afternoon snack after Christmas shopping. We shared a brisket quesadilla, which was delicious and so big! There were 8 triangles of... More

We have eaten at both restaurants near us and have found the food to be equally very good and consistent. This is my favorite TexMex restaurant in the area since moving from the Houston area in April, 2014. We like our food with more spice than many people and they are able to accommodate us. It is slightly more expensive... More

I'm usually all for cheap Tex-Mex but with reviews like these I couldn't resist Mi Cocina. It was delicious. The shredded brisket was superb and their avocado rice is amazing. It's a little pricier than your standard tex-mex but don't let $10 a plate scare you away. It's worth it. Enjoy!

the interior of this restaurant is not your typical Mexican Casita feel. Instead, it feels a like an upscale urban eatery circa 2005. That being said, they have a wonderful streetside patio, tasty food, good service and are right smack dab in Town Square making this a great spot to relax.

We' eaten here for years and have never had a bad meal. Their pulled pork enchiladas are really tasty! Service is attentive and the food is consistently good. It's in a great location in Town Square but parking can be a challenge sometimes.

Consistently great service and food. When we are in town we go there at least twice a week. Our favorite is the Chicken Rico salad. In nice weather the patio is the place to be to watch the shoppers go by. The margaritas are top notch if you are in the mood for one.

Kind of a take on Pace Picante - I would eat here often but seriously their hot sauce has to be my least favorite of any Mexican Restaurant. White linen prices and service, but all detracted by the salsa - maybe if I bring my own I would eat here more.

Great, authentic mexican food in a more upscale environment. Love the Margaritas, the Mambo Taxi is lethal! Very fast service, constantly kept the water, chips and salsa full
