Only place that ive found in the area that has real enchilada sauce, not tex mex wolf brand chili but im sure they do have it. Food is great and order the margarita by the pitcher. Salsa has a nice smokey kick. The only complaint i woud have... The chairs are dirty. This place is fast casual. Has a nice out side area as well. Staff is also very attentive.

We regularly visited the location on Preston Road over in Plano prior to its closing. We decided to visit this location as we were in the area. I hate it but we were greatly disappointed. They are charging table service prices for order at the counter service. It's just not acceptable. The restaurant was clean, the food was good, the service was sadly lacking.

There is no shortage of Tex-Mex competition in Southlake. So it is surprising to me that a place that is just so-so can survive. Non-existent service, average Tex-Mex, and a parking lot location are not the ingredients for success. Yet, Mi Chula chugs on.

Expect the usual Tex-Mex fare here. Nothing fancy, nothing memorable either.

Good for families with picky eaters.

Don't waste you're money or time. The food was not good, in fact, we've had better in hospital cafeterias. At lunch time in the middle of the week the place was empty - a sure sign we should have turned around and looked for another place to lunch!

If you find yourself in Southlake, Tx then you know it is an upper end place. That means people expect good quality and great service. Mi Chula's is great Mexican-tex/mex done right. They do not have a wait staff. There is usually a greeter at the door to guide you thorugh the specials and make recommendations. Tell them if it is your first time in. You pay at the counter and fill up your own drinks but they bring out the chips and salsa and your food when it is ready. If you want refills they will help you out if you ask. It is the right amount of good food and service with out anyone hovering over you while you are eating. My newbride loves the bacon wrapped shrimp dish. I love it when she gets it because the shrimp are huge and since she can't eat it all I usually find an extra shrimp or two make it onto my plate. I enjoy the steak fajitias quasideas. They have two kinds of ice tea and plenty of sodas to choose from. They are located in the shopping center with Central Market so there is plenty of parking. They have seating on an outside patio too. Give them a try when you are in the area or if you are a local. BTW, they are in the same shopping center as Coal Vines pizza that I have reviewed too. See ya out there! Blair
