This review is for the Mi Cocina that just opened at the Star in Frisco, TX. Can’t find their page, probably because it’s so new.

I had the chips and salsa and a margarita and have been dealing with joint pain, inflammation, brain fog and irritability all week since having them. I’m talking wrists hurting so bad I couldn’t pick up my phone and after running every day the week before, it’s hard to stand for too long. Judging from the other comments. It had to be the chips. I am gluten intolerant. Normally I’m fine with corn chips at other places despite cross contamination but these got me good.

I have been gluten free for a year and a half after learning I had Celiac and I warn you not to eat here. I had the GF brisket tacos and I got terribly sick - chills, body aches, digestive problems, all within three hours of eating here. I’ll never go to a Mi Cocina again unfortunately. Not worth the risk!

Updated review - We love this place, it has a delicious Gf menu. BUT recently the GF queso started testing positive for gluten (with our Nima sensor) - in the past it never did. Im not sure if this change has to do with the kitchen, or their supplier. We talked to the manager about this, and he told us they don’t guarantee the meal is actually gluten free, just gluten friendly. We are bummed since our celiac son loves eating here, but after so many positive tests, we have to take this one off our list of go-to’s :(

Order from here all the time and they are great and never get sick. Can’t have the chips but if you get it to go use your own chips for the queso.

Gluten free! With trained wait staff and manager! My celiac wife ordered nachos. The manager came out to say the regular "round" chips used for Nachos were not gluten free, but he was glad to make her Nachos with the regular gluten free chips! This is the type of gluten free support all restaurants should have. Thanks, Mico!

Chips are not gluten-free. Waiters are not properly trained. I was given conflicting information about the sauces. They are not careful. My husband and I both ordered the GF brisket tacos and one of us got GF and the other didn't. Not cool.

No gluten free menu anymore, i guess. Brisket tacos were mediocre at best. Waitress not very informative about gluten free.

The service is awesome...we are regulars so the waitstaff is very aware of what I can eat. Highly recommend the chicken tortilla soup (minus tortilla chips) and the pollo moderno, they also have tacos that are served on corn tortillas but do not eat any of their rice. I usually just ask for grilled veggies instead. I’ve gotten used to not being able to eat chips, but if you love chips/salsa then this isn’t the place for you. Plenty of great options otherwise!

I’ve enjoyed mi cosina in the past, but they’ve recently declined in their gluten free options. They no longer have their gluten free rice nor their gluten free menu. Several sauces have gluten. The food is good, but the options are increasingly limited.

My wife and I place our orders. Our friends(on a double date) place their orders and then and I repeated our order and even said “I know it sounds repetitive but everything must be gluten-free” The waiter confirmed and while we waited we noticed the kitchen staff not wearing masks- a manger yelled at them to put the on and the moment he was gone the masks came back down.

Our waiter came back about 20 minutes later explaining our orders had to be remade as they used the wrong sauce. 5 minutes after that the owner came over, I assume not knowing the waiter had already spoken with us and he gave us a complete different reason- “because it’s Gluten-free, it’s all being made fresh and ‘FROM SCRATCH’”

When the food arrived we were thrilled to finally dig in. However the corn tortillas that made our enchiladas were raw from a bag, and very tough to chew through. Not a person at our table could stomach the meal.

The ambiance and the waiter was great. But the most important aspect of a restaurant is the food -and the entire party of 4 agreed we’ve had better food from a truck and drive thru.

They tried really hard but I got sick. I believe the chips were the culprit.
