My wife and I stopped in for an early lunch. We came away very pleased with both food and service. The waitress was gracious and the tacos were brilliant. Highly recommended.

I love the newly added outside dining area and the new indoor bar! The food is really, really good! I love their fish tacos and chicken enchiladas! The service has improved dramatically. I appreciate that the owner hires people who really need a job and trains them. I think it's important to say that the owners are very involved in... More

Very comfortable atmosphere. Outside dining also available . Food was very good and so was service. Small place can get crowded but well worth the trip

Crowded, but well served. Loud, laughs, kind-lovely servers, margaritas and crafts. Lovely menu...doubtful one could go wrong. Porch was open, beautiful evening. Go with the people you most enjoy. Have the best of times.

I've been here several times, and the food is usually good. I like the fish and shrimp tacos, and they seem to be a consistently good choice--when the server gets my order right. Vegetarian options are very limited. The margaritas are delicious, best in town by far, but you'll have to wait for them because bar tending is slow. Service... More

I had been here once before and the food wasn't bad. Went today for lunch and was seating by a lady when I first walked in. After sitting there for 20 minutes, I decided to leave since no one ever came to take my order. The bad part is the owner was sitting across from me having lunch and I... More

Service is hit or miss but the food is delicious! I love the guacamole, enchiladas, fish tacos and more! Be cautious...the drinks are strong!

Staff seemed disorganized. Food was below expectations. My shrimp was not done when served. Bar service very slow.

This was our first to Mi Cocina de Amor and I can assure you, they live up their good reviews. We were warmly greeted by the owners as we were seated. They asked if this was our first visit and were told... "The first time you are our guests, the next time you are our family." The following hour would... More
