Above average service and food. Love the drinks. Every now and then service can be a bit slow, but always a good choice!

“An early adopter that hasn't updated the menu”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

Mi Cocina was one of the early dining options in Southlake Town Center. It is big, crowded, sometimes noisy, and usually with a wait on the weekends. It is a good choice for families and large groups, so if you were expecting a quiet relaxing meal, you should look elsewhere.

Mi Cocina's menu has the usual array of tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, and combo platters. Unfortunately, the menu rarely adds anything new, not even the occasional blackboard special. While you can always get your favorite, that's also their limitation. Not much variety.

Mi Cocina's "cousin" restaurant - Taco Diner - is located on the other side of the center (near the Barnes & Noble). Both are owned by the same company and even some of the menu options are similar. For my money, Taco Diner is actually the better choice.

Service at Mi Cocina is inconsistent. If it is a busy weekend night, expect to be there awhile. The menu is priced on par with other similar restaurants, but seems a bit on the high side for OK, but not stellar, Tex-Mex.

“So Yummy!!!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

The food is delicious and the drinks are even better! I had the Carne Asada. The ribeye was full of flavor and the rice was a perfect side dish. If you have ever heard of a "Mambo Taxi" than you know how awesome these drinks are. If you have never had one, you best make your way over to Mi Cocina and try one.

“Great location, average food, service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

Great location here in Southlake, but just average food, service was a bit above average, but still average...when you're in an upscale area, you have to step it up a bit to remain at par! The food was reasonable, and reasonably priced.

Best cheese enchiladas around! Salsa is awesome - get your drink before eating though because it's spicy! Haven't had anything that isn't great - food and service are awesome - can't loose at Mi Cocina!
