We have many times eaten at Mi Cocina in Highland Park .... the atmosphere is very good & the food "fair". The "sister restaurant" on Preston is just plain not even worth the ride to get there. From the moment " you open the front door" the impact is negative i.e. like dirty & no atmosphere. A good margarita is... More

The food was its usual consistent self. Had the fajitas, salads and enchiladas (a bit dry). All good but nothing outstanding. Service was not as good as usual. Had to ask several times for drinks, salsa,etc. Not a great night, but will probably return.

My co-worker picked up our carry out orders for us. Approx. about 5 people ordered. When my co-worker got there she was told by a woman "I don't appreciate all these separate orders." What!?! Who says that at a restaurant that's in business to have business? Would she have rather all of us gone up there and all 5 of... More

Had a dinner here for a work group of 30 people. Chips, salsa and drunks were all filled promptly and refilled quickly as well. Food came out quickly. Most of the group was very pleased with taste if their food. One person said that the tamales they ordered were cold.

Stop in for lunch. Had the #1, which is 2 enchiladas with yellow rice and refried beans. $8.95 without salad, plenty of great tasting food. They serve free high quality chips & salsa before your meal. Didn't have any alcohol, but noticed they had an extensive menu of same. I was waited on by Reyna. Very prompt, attentive, cheerful. I...

the food is good but the waiters try to rush you out the door. I had put my fork down to take a drink and they tried to take my plate of food away. They stated that they thought I was finished eating - I had only taken 2 bites of my food. This has happened to me at all... More

There are plenty of restaurants in this area, but on this occasion I was looking for good, fast and informal food. The food was great but this review is about the service and the Double barrel Margaritas, which provided the icing on the cake :) a good choice for Mexican in the area.

Brisket nachos are not on the menu. (They should be). You can order them. They are the best nachos I have ever eaten. We order them every time we eat there.

Dinner is always delicious at Mi Cocina. Everyone loved their entrees and we had more than enough food to fill our bellies. Our servers were excellent and kept our glasses full. We dined with children as well and they had great selections for the kids.

We were a family of 7 including a baby, and the wait staff could not be nice. We started immediately with warm nacho chips and yummy salsa which was quickly replenished as soon as we removed the last chip. The food arrived quickly and all dishes were delicious. But mostly we appreciated the kindness of the staff concerning the baby... More
