We love Mi Cocina and dined at the Dallas locations on a regular basis for years before moving to Rockwall. The atmosphere is great - margaritas are the bomb and the food is delicious! Salsa is one of the best in town and the service is very friendly and accommodating.

Ask for Maria she's awesome! The Food is just as good and the management is very attentive. The guacamole is very good. Look out for the Limo, it will sneak up on you!

The food is usually quite good (just like every restaurant in that corporation). But the service is usually very slow (also like every restaurant that corporation owns.) Friendly. But slow. Eat here if atmosphere and food quality are more important than prompt, attentive service. The chips and salsa are very good, as is the queso. They also serve the best... More

We arrived after 8:30 and even though no one was waiting and there were empty tables we had to wait. After being seated Jeremy took our drink order and after another 5 minutes chips arrived. Water went dry multiple times. Tamale was meaty but too salty. Taquitos were good but guacamole was bland. We chose to go go here over... More

Try the tortilla crusted salmon - you will not be disappointed! They have great chips and salsa; the chips have some substance and you won't lose them in your dip(s). Although the fajitas were a bit dry on this occasion, there are many other wonderful choices. Be sure to try a Mambo Taxi (their signature drink), and you'll likely want... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant with my aunt and uncle last weekend. I had the Sunset Enchiladas, my uncle and aunt split a Cocina Changa, and my husband had the enchiladas sans the mole. My food was outstanding: most flavorful enchilada I have ever had. Our server, however, disappeared into the kitchen for twenty minutes before she finally... More
