Was in Irving, Los Colinas area on business and chose Mi Cocina as I am familiar with the restaurant at other locations. Selected the Brisket street tacos packed full of beef on corn tortilla.
You can rely on the service and food quality at all the Mi Cocina locations, this is what makes them a safe choice for good food and service.

Good selection, great flavor and fantastic setting. I recommend the cheese and guacamole as an appetizer. Portions sizes are perfect for lunch!

Often, Mexican restaurants aren't the kind of place to meet for a business dinner. Mi Cocina is different: contemporary, sleek atmosphere, combined with great Mexican food.

Although I love their brisket tacos, I tried their chicken and tamale special. In fact, I liked it so much I came back a second night to have it again. The tamale is soft, fresh and full of flavor. The poblano cream sauce is a foodies' dream!

The dessert menu is sparse, but who normally has room after great Mexican food!

We are from Houston and are accustomed to a very robust selection of mexican and tex-mex restaurants. We stopped here on a Saturday night on the way to a concert at Grand Prairie. It was around 7pm and there was no wait and many empty tables. The restaurant is very nice inside, with the exception that the tables seemed a little close together. Also, the table that we were set at was not stable and almost tumped over when leaned on. I noticed that a table next to us had a napkin stuffed under the leg. The decor was pleasant and upscale. The restrooms were very clean. Pricing on the entrees was around $10-20.

The worst part about this place was the food. The chips were greasy. The meats were dry. The cheese in the cheese enchilada was the yellow grated variety. The salsa was delicious, however, but the bowl that they give you is pretty small. I ordered the 57 Special which had one of each type of enchilada. The flavor of the sauces was ok, but the meat inside them was bland and dry.

Later that night on the way to the concert we noticed a Pappasito's restaurant not too far away and were upset that we didn't go there instead...
