THE most consistent tex-mex in all of Dallas. From the basics to fun adventurous items, you will NOT go wrong. And the margaritas are wickedly good too!

Casual, but nice. Seated and served quickly, and food is fantastic and high quality. Be sure to order a Mambo Taxi - it's delicious.

Food is fresh and good, but nothing special. Lunch specials are a god deal. Get there early for lunch. Dinner is slower paced.

We were really looking for a good Tex Mex meal and were told to try Mi Cocina. Even though it is a chain, this location at least is very good. The Mambo Taxi drink is delicious. Very good guacamole and great brisket tacos.

Very good food for a good price. More formal than On the Border but in the same price range. Good place for a date or business meal. Excellent staff took very good of all the customers.
