Sure, famous Texans like Owen Wilson, Troy Aikman, and One Direction dine at Mi Cocina's Dallas flagship, but it's first ATL location is for the birds... since the first floor sports a curving mural depicting feathered flyers native to ATL, and frescoes of birds in flight (along with GA's official state butterfly, the Tiger Swallowfly) dangle from conical ceilings upstairs. It's also for you, if you enjoy eating next-level Tex-Mex. The focus is squarely on street eats like Tacos Mi Tierra (w/ diced & grilled fajita beef, serranos & onions), bacon-wrapped shrimp brochettes stuffed w/ jalapeños & jack cheese, spicy pork & chile con carne tamales, plus "moderns" like chili-garlic shrimp, and big "basics" like the two tacos/ three enchiladas Deluxe 57, which will go directly to your be-Heinz. And then there are not-exactly-street drinks: 30+ tequilas including Corralejo Reposado that's aged four months in tri-wood barrels (American, French, and white oak), beers from Victoria to the Modelos, house sangria mixed w/ Presidente brandy, and the Smooth Ride 'rita w/ Sauza Blanco & a "Chambord meltdown", which's what you may have when you realize that One Direction isn't from Plano.
