Stopped in with friends for dinner on a Sunday evening and were seated right away. Chips and salsa were very good. We all shared a large queso and gucamole both were tasty. The fajitas were wonderful as was the Tacos Carbon. I would visit them again if we are in town.

We got the chefs special- tacos al carbon. What a disappointment. Every bite was a bite into fat. The margaritas were nothing to edge about.

Very friendly Staff. Nice patio, but it's dark - I used my iPhone to read the menu. Has a Corona, no Beer on tap. The chips & the salsa was plentyful & great!! Setteld for a beef & chicken fajita that was more Than OK.

On our last day in Dallas, after loading a U-Haul in the August heat, we treated ourselves to Mi Cocina's for dinner. We had a wonderful waiter and began with the best margarita ever! To be clear, we could likely have eaten a cardboard box at this point, but the guacamole and chips were delicious starters while waiting for our... More

THE most consistent tex-mex in all of Dallas. From the basics to fun adventurous items, you will NOT go wrong. And the margaritas are wickedly good too!

I have been going here for years. I USED to eat here every Friday night. NEVER again. I have never experienced a ruder staff or worse food. Our waiter had so much attitude and was not interested. We had a group of 13, which I know can be tough but the simples things were not done; silverware, water clearing the... More

I always love going to Mi Cocina for the drinks and the atmosphere, but I'm not a huge fan of the food. The chips are bland and the food is not anything to get excited for, but again, I go for the drinks and the great wait staff.

Our business group of 5 enjoyed a weekday lunch in this busy restaurant....come early! We all had various selections from the lunch menu and everyone liked their choices. The hostess and waitstaff were prompt and friendly. The food was good and the price reasonable. I'd definitely come back.

Casual, but nice. Seated and served quickly, and food is fantastic and high quality. Be sure to order a Mambo Taxi - it's delicious.

I have been eating at Mi Cocina (Preston/Forest location) regularly for the past 5 years, if not longer. I either dine in or take out from this location at least 1-2 times per month. That will sadly be coming to an end. Over the past few months, their food has gotten progressively worse. Everything has gone downhill -- blander salsa,... More
