Mi Cocina’s authentic Tex-Mex has been woven into the fabric of Dallas’ food scene for nearly three decades. With legendary offerings like Mambo Taxis, slow-roasted brisket tacos, fresh Rico salads and sizzling fajitas, there’s a reason lines are out the door at their 21 local, neighborhood restaurants in DFW.
Mi Cocina recently contacted us to share big news – they’ve built their first food truck that will soon be serving up Tex-Mex at events, tailgates and more. We got an inside look – and now we’re sharing it with you.
In addition to serving items from MiCo’s menu, the culinary team is developing truck-exclusive eats only for truck foodies to enjoy.
The truck mimics the kitchen equipment and layout at MiCo’s brick-and-mortar locations, so all orders will have the consistency and quality you’d expect. “In 2018 we reintroduced a familiar menu design and classic Mi Cocina recipes, and refocused our efforts on allowing each restaurant to operate independently within their specific neighborhoods. This truck is just that – a classic Mi Cocina exterior, serving classic Mi Cocina items,” explains Edgar Guevara, M Crowd CEO. In collaboration with M Crowd’s Director of Culinary and Director of Catering, the team essentially condensed one of their restaurants into 22 feet. “We can execute any Mi Cocina menu item from the truck. We wanted to be able to bring the entire Mi Cocina experience to our guests at their location.”
In addition to serving items from MiCo’s menu, the culinary team is developing truck-exclusive eats only for truck foodies to enjoy. You’ll find Mi Cocina’s food truck wherever food fans gather, from parks to breweries to festivals. Some of places you may have already seen the Mi Cocina truck include the Trammell Crow Center in downtown Dallas, Ford Stadium at SMU, Amon G. Carter Stadium at TCU, the Cotton Bowl Stadium at Fair Park, private residences and Highland Park Village. Follow #MiCocinaFoodTruck and be the first to know the schedule of upcoming public event and food truck service dates.
Don’t want to wait to stumble up on the truck in the wild? Book catering, and treat your guests to Mi Cocina’s iconic queso and margs anywhere, anytime. (There’s a frozen margarita machine on the side of the truck!)
They can accommodate groups of up to 600 for any occasion – showers, weddings, holiday parties, business events, happy hours or just a reason to have friends over for Mambos & Tex-Mex. There’s a flat screen TV on the front of the truck above the margarita machine where guests can see the menu, complete with photos and graphics tailored for the event.
Additionally, Mi Cocina is proud to give back to the Dallas-Fort Worth communities that have supported their restaurants for the last 27 years. The truck will make appearances at neighborhood and community events across the metroplex. It’ll also feed the public servants who help safeguard our city, from police officers to firefighters.
