The ambiance is great, But the food is not to my liking. the taco shells are very hard, I mean there is a danger that you could break a tooth! Not enough flavor for my taste.

Had a very nice dinner here passing through town. Service was almost too efficient. We were staying at the hotel close by so we're in no great rush after a day on the road and the place was not very busy. Would have had a second cocktail if not so rushed to order after we asked for a few minutes.... More

Good food and good wait staff service. Reception and seating can be a challenge especially when they are busy. Love the bar tender and the older more experienced staff. Go off hours for more relaxed experience if that is important to you. We eat here once a week and typically have a positive experience.

Actually a very good Mexican Restaurant. My favorite is the Chile Verde "Sonoran" plate. The food has the best flavor and is reasonably priced. The hard shelled tacos are great too. Best Mexican food on Highland Ave.

This place is our favorite in the area for Mexican food. They are always friendly and ready to get our food going. Once you sit down chips and salsa at your table. Never ending chips. Staff is very friendly. If not busy they will talk to us and see what's going on. It's good to see people move up the... More

We have been going to Mi Cocina, at least three to four times a month, since they opened in 1991. Great family owned restaurant with awesome food and great service. It's really nice to sit outside in the spring or fall. Of course, the mexican food is really awesome, especially the salsa, but they also make a really great burger!!... More
