“Regular Stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

We visit Plano often, and Mi Cocina is a regular stop. I personally love the pollo mole, although it's enough to share with a second person. Service is always good, and we've always enjoyed our experience.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

Never disappointed with food or service. Used them for catering last night and everyone enjoyed the fajitas.

“It's the consistency that sets it apart”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

I visit family in dallas every few months and we almost always fit a dinner in at mi cocina. The service is always good, margaritas and mambo taxis top notch, and food as good tex mex as you will find top to bottom on the menu. To be clear, the food probably isn't 5 star food but the fact after a dozen or more visits we've had no bad meals warrants the high rating.

“Very good consistent Tex Mex - just poor Margaritas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

Hey all the food is great here. Particularly the Tacos de Brisket and the tacos made with ribeye (if they still do it, you could even get tacos made with tenderloin - heavenly). The special borracho beans are really amazing, for such a pedestrian kind of thing, they are quite special. The patio on the Preston Road location in Plano is also great for dates and families, looking out over the little lake and ducks. But the BIGGEST MYSTERY for me, as somebody who loves Mexican food and who has a hispanic in the family, is why they just can't seem to make a decent margarita. Just a poor mix I think; doesn't matter if it's a well margarita or the top shelf deal (and when I talk margarita I am not talking the Mambo Taxi which is pretty good, I am talking about just your rock solid traditional margarita). Come and stay for the food, the Negra Modelo's are always cold and good, but don't expect the killer margarita experience.

May your road be smooth, your successes many, and your family's happiness bountiful - Boots Davis

“Favorite Tex-Mex fix”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011 via mobile

As always, a favorite of ours. Killer margaritas. Rico Salad is also one of our favorites, with the chili-garlic dressing. The beef in Tacos Al Carbon is flavorful and tender and the bean soup(with bacon) goes great with this dish. Service was excellent and attentive...kept the chips and salsa coming. Have been coming to Mi Cocina for years and will continue to do so.
