The food was especially good Great bisket taos, tortilla soup, with lots of chicken, and the spinach enchiladas were outstanding. Good service and nice atmosphere. Good for couples and families. The patio is beautiful. The manager Scott was exceptional.

Celebrated anniversary at Mi Cocina in Lake Highlands, our favorite menu items are Tortilla Soup with Chicken Rico Salad (ask for House dressing) hot corn tortillas with butter and a skinny margarita. The whole menu offers something for every palet. Service is always good.
