We went about a month ago and returned last night.

The food (fajitas) was consistently good with the chicken fajitas quite tasty.

Last night, the service was excellent.

Diverse menu with gluten free options.

Went here last night to visit a friend at his suggestion. While I had a pleasant experience the food was just ok, nothing special. The price for the quality of food just does not warrant a higher rating. I have eaten at many tex mex restaurants and when you get $10 to $14 for an entree it should be tasty. This food was plain and bland. Their margaritas are also very expensive. $10 for a 6oz serving for a house margarita. I will not be back, there are better places in Dallas, try Uncle Julios instead.

After a long absence we decided to try Mi Cocina again, after all it is very popular. That said, I don't know why. Our food was mediocre. I had the grilled tilapia and it was over cooked and dry. Mistaken order because I had ordered fish tacos. My husband's enchiladas were okay. Chips and salsa came late after having to ask and it looked like we were served the bottom of a bag since they were mostly broken pieces not suitable for dipping. There are much better Tex mex restaurants nearby with better atmosphere. This will be our last visit to this one.

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.
