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 assumed at any Tex Mex restaurant
But Not Here. It was raw & way too salty. Basic standard foot items such as tacos & baroque beef enchiladas were ok . In fairness,
the chips & salsa was good. So, if you have to go Mi Cocino head to Highland Park...... better yet....look for another Tex Mex restaurant.

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 us stand in line waiting for our order at the same exact time vs. one of us? I ordered the lunch #12, quesadilla and the avocado ensalada. The quesadillas are very small and the avocado ensalado came with no dressing at all. We order from a restaurant every Friday and occasionally pick this location but after this visit I'm not so sure if this restaurant will be at the top of our list to frequent anymore.

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 will ask for her next time. I enjoyed lunch immensly, will come back often.
