Our server was quick to get orders out, made sure we always had water and drinks and the staff was quick to clean up our 2 year olds water spill. Always a dependable family dinner or lunch spot. Not my favorite queso, but my daughter loves it's!

Dallas was recently named one of the nation's most unfriendly cities, while Ft Worth was named one of the friendliest. Mi Cocina, in its own microcosm, reveals much about why Dallas gets such low ratings. Surly inattentive service, an indifferent approach to food quality while wrapping itself in an air of self importance. Another disappointing visit. Cheese enchiladas are not... More

Ordered fish tacos without poblano peppers, some queso and tortillas. The food was ready when I arrived. When I arrived home I was disappointed at what I found. The tacos had two small pieces of fish inside tortillas. No sauce, no cheese, only avocado wedges and some salad on the side. The queso tasted like canned queso used at the... More

This is one of the premier locations of this chain, in a neighborhood lacking restaurants. Moderate price, good portions. Everything is done well.

I've been going here for awhile now, and its just a good place for drinks and food. There is a fun atmosphere and very attentive staff. I prefer to sit in the bar and sometimes on the patio if it's not to hot out, this is Dallas LOL . Try the Tacos al Carbon or the Tacos Habana, you can't... More

Celebrated anniversary at Mi Cocina in Lake Highlands, our favorite menu items are Tortilla Soup with Chicken Rico Salad (ask for House dressing) hot corn tortillas with butter and a skinny margarita. The whole menu offers something for every palet. Service is always good.

I usually avoid chains like the plague, but this is a great chain with individual strengths (and weaknesses) at each location. This particular location is my "home" spot, and their brisket nachos are fantastic. They also have great bartenders who listen and mix as per request (something the Lakewood location lacks). This location does have a tendency to forget your... More

We've been to Mi Cocina quite a few times and have tried several different locations over the years. The food and service have been very good in the past, although some locations have been better than others (Highland Park and Preston Rd. rank high). I would like to say this one, in the neighborhood where I grew up, is as... More
