At this plaza we had two main alternatives: a grill & pizza place and this Mexican restaurant: Mi Cocina. We went for the second one and were not disappointed. Good size plates for lunch, quick and friendly service, food quality above average.

I had a chicken spinach salad and it was very good. Our waiter was nice and friendly. I just didn't like hostess at the door cause she was trying to give us worst table in the restaurant but we refused to sit there, we didn't mind to wait a couple of minutes to get a better table..

As a Dallas staple- Mi Cocina is a must visit, especially must order a Mambo Taxi. Check out the Monkey Bar upstairs if you are looking for just tapas and drinks.

Terrific salsa and chips, great Margaritas, and wonderful Mexican food. The white queso is fantastic as an accompaniment to the tortilla chips. We highly recommend the steak fajita meat quesadilla and the shredded chicken poblano enchiladas. Everything that passed by our table looked delicious.

Every time we travel to Dallas to visit our family, a must do thing is a dinner at Mi Cocina that offers, in our opinion, wonderful Tex-Mex dishes. And the Margaritas are great.

This place is awesome. My husband is sure these are the best steak fajitas he has ever had. Very fresh and reasonably priced. Service was quick and competent. We would definitely go here again.

Our family ate here on our first night in Dallas last weekend. Fairly close to drive to from our downtown hotel. Both street and valet parking are available for patrons. There is ample dining space, and we had fantastic service for both drinks and dinner. The menu offers a wide variety, and the turn-around time from the kitchen to our... More

My daughter took us to this Tex Mex restaurant since it was close to her place. The restaurant has quite a cozy environment giving it some classy style. We were waited by an very nice gentleman and very prompt. His service is very clean, bringing food, even the salsa sauce in a tray and handle dishes minimally with his hands.... More

My husband refuses to eat Tex-Mex in NYC as he doesn't believe it lives up to his Texas roots when it comes to "real" Tex-Mex. Therefore, on my first visit to Texas we HAD to have "real" Tex-Mex. We went to Mi Cocina on a Saturday night and started our night on the bar on the roof which is enclosed... More
