Mambo Taxis! Love MiCo. Fajitas and margaritas! Good stuff! I can always eat here and know I'm safe from allergens and will have a great meal. One of my favs in Rockwall!

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.

A frequent visitor that's never disappointed. The new Chile Rellano is awesome, and my wife loves the nachos Mi Tierra! On the verge of too hot for me but awesome flavor. Brisket tacos are a winner too. Love this place.

We had a quick lunch here during a recent shopping trip. I ordered chicken quesadillas and a mojito. The drink was very artistic and clever. Chips and salsa was plentiful and our server was helpful and friendly. Above average quality for the price.

I normally really enjoy my time dining at Mi Cocina locations. However, this location has failed me more than once. But this visit takes the cake. Our waitress, Becky, was not customer friendly. We had an issue with not getting chips and salsa served AT ALL. She didn't check on us until the food came out which was at least... More

I don't live in Rockwall but visit family and do some business there. When I need to do business, I take clients here because the food is always amazing and the margaritas are tasty! Great atmosphere for business or pleasure!
