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...

Such a hidden gem. Drove by it many times and never went there, I’m happy I found it. Service and ambiance was warm and the generous plates of food was delicious.

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!

So happy to discover such a neighborhood gem. I loved the diablo shrimp tacos(plenty of shrimp) and my wife raved about her enchiladas. We will definitely return and I highly recommend it.

My Cocina is our new favorite Mexican restaurant! The menu offers both traditional and unique plates with a twist. Our server Sergio was friendly and offered samples of their chicken entrees before we ordered. Jeff, the owner, introduced himself and then surprised us with a tasty treat to end our meal. We’ll be making frequent visits in the future!
