    Tina’s Cocina is the place to be if you’re looking for cheap and authentic Mexican food. I’ve been told their pozole is one for the books.

    Stopped here for lunch. The tex mex was good. I had a taco, a chicken enchilada with sour cream and chicken tortilla soup. I thought my meal was okay. My soup was tasty and the hot sauce with chips were really good. My husband got a flauta plate.

    I don't usually write bad reviews...but...I had to now. I ordered take out dinner from here on a slow Sunday. I ordered 3 cheese enchilada dinner 2 with Chile con carne and one with Spanish sauce. First off ..the smallest enchiladas I've ever seen..smaller than tamales, second they had little to no cheese...I mean literally no cheese..I don't like over stuffed cheese enchiladas but these had none...all tortilla. Both sauces were bland and boring and there was almost none of it to be had. The beans/ rice were bland and typical. The man who helped me was nice but that was the only thing pleasant. Of ALL the great Mexican places in Fort Worth and of all the great restaurants on Magnolia this is a no return for me...and yes I have a an experienced pallet in Mexican and Tex Mex after living half my life in Texas (Fort Worth, Dallas and San Antonio) Los Angeles and Miami (though I did not eat much Mexican in Miami). Hate to give a bad review but this was just amateur. Maybe it was an off night...maybe.

    My husband and I went there for lunch after one of his chemo session, the man that waited on us was very friendly & attentive I liked the enchiladas and the rice.

    Tina's Cocina is a little gem on Magnolia Street. It is set back off the street a bit, but well worth the stop. The food is fresh and tasty. I highly recommend the chicken pazole! The chips, salsa, tacos, and enchiladas are also very good.

    Stopped into Tina's Cocina sunday for lunch, an almost hidden restaurant in the row on Magnolia Ave. on Fort Worth's near south side. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The place is set back from the street quite far and if you don't know its there you will miss it. They have the usual Mexican fare from brunch to dinners, as always is my habit I opted for the Enchilada dinner. Although very good the dinners needed the addition of the supplied hot sauce on the table to become "authentic", its rare that I have to enhance Mexican food in Texas....

    Looks funky at first look. Really clean. Authentic Mexican food. Nice prices. Small parking lot on a busy street. Very very clean rest rooms as well as the eating area. Would stop by again.

    This restaurant has a wide range of dishes that are prepared quickly and served efficiently. This visit the tortillas used to make the tacos were still dripping from the grease which meant they were not eaten. The Pasole is tasty and hot. Good that they offer green and red salsa, both are tasty and piquant.

    While attending the art event in Ft Worth yesterday, we decided to find a restaurant we hadn't tried before. Since it was cool, Mexican sounded good, so we proceeded to Tina's Cocina. Inside the restaurant, where you order, it didn't look like much. We picked our food off a posted menu on the wall, and gave our order to a cashier that was difficult to understand. You could see some food prep while reviewing the menu, and there was nothing appealing about the interior. We decided to eat on the patio. I didn't want a full big plate, so I ordered a taco with chorizo and a guacamole salad and chips. The taco was tiny and open with a dab of chorizo and nothing else. The tortilla was so soggy and greasy that I could hardly pick it up. This was a flour tortilla, not crunchy. I didn't see any crunchy tacos on the a la carte menu. The chorizo filling had no taste whatsoever. The guacamole was good and a good size portion. They brought out 2 squeeze bottles of "salsa" and though I used some of it to try to create some flavor on the taco, it didn't help. The green bottle was a little hot, but not flavorful and the red bottle had no taste whatsoever, so it was worthless to order the chips. I can't say often enough how greasy the taco was; I didn't feel good the rest of the day. To me, this is not TEX-Mex because the was no flavor in anything, the place was completely without any pleasant atmosphere, and I would never go back.

    A small, family run Mexican Restaurant on the Southside serves affordable and authentic Tex-Mex in a casual environment. Nothing fancy here. The Taco platter was a must try for me – Carnitas were very tender and seasoned well. The chorizo was spicy and good. The Al Pastor, marinated in guajillo peppers was very tasty. Each taco served Mexican style with onions and cilantro. The accompanying rice and beans were ….cold. I tried sitting outside on the porch patio, because the weather was so nice, but I was driven inside immediately by several cigarette smokers, who commanded several of the patio tables. Yuck!

    Met a friend here as we both like Mexican food. The waiter was really attentive and pleasant - but that is the only good point. Poorly decorated, plastic chairs, wobbly tables and pay at cash desk which was almost in the kitchen. Margaritas had hardly any tequila, chips were okay, salsa was hot and watery, queso was okay, quesadillas were bland and sparsely filled, friend said tacos were okay but retried beans were awful. Will not be returning.

    we stayed in Ft. Worth and looked for a close mexican food place and pulled this one up to go to on a Sunday morning. We went at 9:45 am, there were 7 of us and the food was fresh hot and tasty! Service was very friendly, I would love it if this place was close to my house and I would be a regular!

    Nice staff. Very good quality. Overpriced for below average size meals. So many better options on Fort Worth.

    The restaurant is very very casual. A friend and I went for lunch and it was our first visit. The food was very good. My friend had the fish tacos and enjoyed every bite. I had a carnitas taco,just the right amount of pulled pork, onion and cilantro. very tasty. We had an order of salsa and queso. The salsa bowl and queso bowl are not large but the chip basket was overflowing. All in all the food was very good and priced very reasonably. As for decor, as I said it is very casual, in a small strip center.

    Excellent meal, the steak tacos were excellent, as was the mushroom and the pazola was to die for. Staff were very friendly and we loved the food and eating outside on a wonderfully mild night was a bonus. Would come back when in Fort Worth

    This place would've gotten a solid 4 from me for the food, but I deducted points for being overcharged. This is the second time this has happened at this hole-in-the-wall cafe on Magnolia, and I'm starting to think they make up their prices as they go along. That having been said, pay attention when they ring you up, people! The breakfast tacos are excellent. On this visit, I had the chorizo, egg, and cheese taco and a Mexican Coke. It was a very satisfying breakfast, but when I go in an order somewhere, I expect the prices to be the same as what's listed on the board/menu, and this place keeps changing it without changing the prices on the menu.

    Very tasty authentic Mexican food. The Tacos al pastor were delicious. A great place to grab a quick bite for lunch, or to order carry out to take home.

    Thought this was going to be a high quality Mexican (or was it central American?) meal, but at least on the night I was there (with a party of 12) it was really not. Fish, pork and steak tacos all failed to make high marks. Service was really poor, but as we left, we saw their catering truck pull in and unload, so I guess they were understaffed. Poor gal behind the counter really did her best and she was great, but there was mass confusion in the kitchen and it unfortunately translated into just another run of the mill Mexican meal.

    Variety of lunch specials, reasonable prices, very tasty tacos with variety of meats. Definitely one of Magnolia's bright spots. Give it a try!

    We were wanting to try somewhere new and came across Tina's. The food ran the spectrum of quality. We had: - Whitefish Ceviche which was excellent. The fish was plentiful and were on a daily special of $3 each. - Green Pozole which was very good. A bit spicier than I was expecting very good. - Tina's Cream Soup was excellent. It was very creamy and bisque-like. - Bistek ranchero was probably the second best thing we had behind the ceviche. The steak was flavorful and very tender. - The Taco Plate was a bit of a let down. The meats were bland and tasted boiled. The carnitas was the most disappointing as the pork was in no way crispy. We will definitely give this another try and the steak and ceviche will definitely be repeats.
