Mi Cocina's Has Got it Figured Out . . .

Mi Cocina's: First of all, their food is good; their menu is small and controllable, so it is easier to keep the quality up and inventory down. It's not cheap but it's not wildly expensive, either. They have low turn-over in their managers and staff, and they pick great locations, and adjust the ambiance accordingly.They know what their business is about: providing an enjoyable meal outside the home. They do that well and Fort Worth residents have shown their appreciation. The downtown Mi Cocina's has an outdoor patio that is as nice a place to eat as you will find in the area. My selection: Mama's salad with sliced chicken breast, salsa as a dressing, with a diet Coke (served in a can). Warm, corn tortillas, with butter on the side. The lettuce is a good mixture of dark greens and lighter and it is served cold, except for the chicken which is warm. Total tab with tip: $15.00.

I agree about the downtown Mi Cocina - but not the one by Central Market. I ate there once, when they first opened; the food was so-so and the coffee was awful - not even drinkable. I enjoyed your reviews and mostly agree with what you said.

Please disagree at will. And we frequent the downtown Mi Cocina's as well and I never, almost never, order coffee in a restaurant.
