A tad on the pricier side but I feel worth every penny. The food is fresh, flavorful and delicious. Nice variety of unique margaritas and tequilas that are out of this world. Will be back.

We had family in town from out of state and enjoyed a wonderful dinner at My Cocina. We especially love the separate vegan menu as it gives so many options for us to choose from for our meal. Great service and delicious food and drinks! Thank you!

A simple and elegant restaurant that serves classic Mexican fare with creative main dishes. We had ‘surf and turf served over tamales’. Great cocktails, the cucumber and jalapeño margarita was sweet but satisfying. Ran out of time and energy otherwise I would have samples the old fashioned with ‘smoky tequila’. Bottom line is we were happy to find a new, nearby Mexican restaurant we can frequent.

Food was delicious.. the baby back ribs delicious and a generous portion, salmon with mole it's great maybe could have been pulled a minute earlier. Main thing is the music tends to be a little bit louder making it hard to have a conversation with someone across the table.

We absolutely loved everything about this place. What a surprise to find such great food and service in a strip mall in the suburbs! We had the Al Pastor Fajitas and loved the grilled pork and pineapple. Also had the esquites which was amazing. The chips and salsa were excellent as well, wry fresh. The table next to us ordered a black panther cocktail and they lit a sugar cube on top of the drink - it looked so good. We were there at 5:30 on a Sunday and the place was jammed so that’s a good sign. Highly recommend!

Food was amazing. Modern Mexican, very good ! Drinks were fun and tasty. Only thing I would change on the drinks is they are a little pricey for what you get (alcohol wise). Had two drinks and they were tasty just not a lot of alcohol that I can tell. Nice place. Would def go back.

Planned a friends get-together to celebrate one of our friend’s birthdays. A couple of our friends are plant-based, so My Cocina was a great choice as they have a separate vegan menu with several options. We thoroughly enjoyed all the drinks and food — all was delicious! And our server was super friendly and accommodating of our special dietary requests.

We had celebrated Mother’s Day and Jeff, the owner, couldn’t have had a better menu!! His staff and himself go above and beyond to take care of all. He definitely has a different menu and makes everything so fresh and handmade. I have never been dissatisfied with service or food. He is a creative man and loved the coffee margarita!!

First time dining at My Cocina - my sister and I had a great time with delicious food and drinks. As we are vegan, we enjoyed their wide variety of foods from their vegan menu. We especially liked the empanadas and beyond tacos — they were excellent!! We’ll definitely be going again!

The food was excellent. I had the short rib, while my wife had the enchilada platter. We also had the churro dessert, which was really good. The service was very good, although the music was a little loud.

We'll be back...

My favorite Mexican restaurant never fails to deliver! The martinis were perfect. While my friend and I filled up on the complimentary chips and salsa - 3 different tasty salsas - we equally enjoyed our entrees. Both the carne asada tampiquena and Mexican short rib were generous portions and well seasoned. Our server, Sergio, is one of the nicest guys, and he’s attentive without being intrusive. Kudos to owner Jeff and his wonderful team!
