Mi Cocina in the Woodlands is a nice Tex Mex restaurant with good items to be found throughout the menu. From the start, the very tasty homemade salsa and chips get you warmed up and the service is pretty good, even when the restaurant is busy.
I have visited this restaurant a couple of times and have liked most of my experience each time with only a few exceptions. I like the food overall and have had a few different burritos, tacos, and other food dishes, all of which rate better than average. Each food item has a fresh flavor and I haven’t been disappointed with the food quality of any item, although nothing really blew me away.
The exceptions I mentioned before? Well, they would be with the drinks and parking. The house margarita is nothing exceptional and beer lovers will be disappointed to find only ten choices, and not a single local beer among them. Then, there is the parking. If you arrive Monday through Thursday, you shouldn’t have any problems, but arrive on the weekend and you may be forced to pay for the valet parking service because all of the spaces will be taken. Mi Cocina sits adjacent to the Woodlands Mall and should therefore have abundant parking. But due to the growing popularity of the Mall, it can get very difficult to find a place for your vehicle.
Still, taking everything into account, I like Mi Cocina and recommend a visit. The Woodlands Waterway Taxi is right next door for extra convenience and the food is certainly good enough to recommend. Give it a try if you like Tex Mex food- there should be something on the menu for everyone in your party to enjoy.
