This is an upscale Tex-Mex. The decor is clean and contemporary. The beer menu is very lacking but the Margaritas more than make up for the shortcomings. They are really good. Very nice chips are served complimentary but the salsa is pretty watery and bland. It may as well be tomato soup. I ordered the poblano enchilladas which was excellent... More

We were meeting family for dinner and chose this place due to location. it's in a strip center and the tables seem very crowded to fill the space. It was very busy and extremely loud inside the restaurant. However, we were seated quickly and immediately were greeted by staff and had drinks and queso quickly. (We were not a fan... More

Very nice and relaxing atmosphere and a well stock bar. Our waiter was very friendly and professional. The menu was excellent with a nice selection of appetizers. We tried... More

I did a pick up order of beef tacos. Very tasty. Lasted two meals. They have a separate gluten free menu. I want to try the fajitas next!

The outside seating they have is nice during lunch hours but get chillier during the night. The food is average and was nothing special for such a rated restaurant .

Typical Tex-Mex food, served in a very nice envoirnment. Total variety of what you would expect is available. The only change is the price structure. For whatever the reason, they... More

Not sure what they are doing at Mi Cocina, but I use to eat here all the time. It was always a favorite - coming at least 3-4x a month. They have changed the quality of the food. Enchiladas are week on substance (meat), they also seem dry. At first I thought it was just the "night" we ate there,... More
