Mi Cocina may be a chain restaurant, but ask any of the locals (who will fondly call it MiCo), and they’ll tell you: it’s the go-to spot for affordable but delicious Mexican food in Dallas. Get just about anything on the menu for a taste of what Tex-Mex is all about. It’s a great place to bring the family or for a casual business lunch, but keep in mind that locals flock to Mi Cocina like it’s their family dinner table, so some locations may have a bit of a wait for dinner. If you’re not driving, indulge in a Mambo Taxi, a combo margarita and sangria that is arguably the best margarita in the city.
There are 7 Mi Cocina’s throughout the Dallas area. Check out the website for the closet location to you.
