I thought this place had closed years ago: Mi Cocinita located on 3509 1/2 Bryan Avenue, Fort Worth, Texas, 76110. It's a restaurant that is in a house in the middle of a neighborhood that, thanks to being grandfathered in, still exists despite what would be a pretty clear violation of current zoning laws.
There is no Gap, Starbucks or Barnes and Noble within eye-shot of this place.
Who cares? There may not be a Mexican restaurant in Fort Worth with more charm or character than this restaurant that was formerly known as "Betty's" and now "Mi Cocinita".
This is traditional Tex-Mex cuisine and you really aren't going to go wrong with anything on this menu. I did the Tostada dinner, which for about $7 you can't really beat. The guacamole is outstanding, and if salty chips are your thing these are hard to put down.
They also offer many call-to-order dishes from tamales, fideo, beans, chips, guacamole, etc. The seating area is about 35 indoors, and maybe half that on the patio outside. It's available for parties and small gatherings.
