Recently ate here twice with colleagues and was impressed with the food both times. If you go you must definitely try the brisket tacos as they are quite good. Food is a little pricey, but it is South Lake after all.

This is an upscale Mexican restaurant. The inside is very nice and if you just want to meet friends for chips and margaritas, it is great. If you want great Mexican food--this place is just okay. There are too many other good Mexican spots in the area that I would rather eat at. But the atmosphere is really nice at Mi Cocina, if you need to feel upscale and fancy while you eat Mexican food. Lol.

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

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.

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.
