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

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!

We had lunch here on Saturday afternoon. There were 4 of us. The hostesses were very friendly the moment we walked in. We were seated and attended to very quickly. Blanca (sp?) was very friendly, personable and attentive. The food was excellent. My sister in law and I had Ernie's Chicken (recommended to me by my sister in law) and... More

Every time I have been to Mi Cocina, I have gotten great meals and outstanding service. I don't think I have ever waited more than 5 minutes. Great restaurant!
