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

As far as Tex Mex goes, the meal at Mi Cocina was quite good. The restaurant itself was a little loud (large party of post-soccer practice kids), making conversation with my dinner companion a little strained. I would go back, though, without a doubt.

I love Me Cocina and this is my favorite location. The food is aways great and the margarita are super yummy! I would recommend the mambo taxi. Everything I have has been great. I do not think you can go wrong with anything on the menu.

This restaurant was recommended by our hostess for the weekend, the parking lot was very full on a friday night and we though at least an hour wait, but the 4 of us were seated right away. Our waiter was very good, and got our Margaritas to us right away plus the chips and salsa was very good as well,... More

Although the restaurant was very crowded we didn't have any trouble with service. In fact, it was great. The food was fresh and delicious. The chicken nachos came with a large slice of chicken on each chip! Yummy. And their guacamole is the best.... simple and tasty. The Mambo Taxi is a house favorite and is a margarita with sangria....

Went late (9pm),and after a short 10 minute wait was seated. The sever was incredible, and we received our food within 10 minutes of ordering. My son got the beef tacos, rice, guac, and beans. I got the chicken breast with mole, rice and beans. Both dishes prepared beautifully and were consumed in minutes. Pleasant, efficient service and reasonable if... More

All the food here is delicious with generous portions. This place is usually busy but the wait staff keep up very well. Parking and noise can be an issue so try to ride together if you can. I highly recommend this establishment.
