Needed lunch while visiting the market, and there they were! Nice place to stop, plenty of variety, and great service. The good: - Menu variety - Margaritas - Bakery and bar attached - Tortillas, see below The bad: - Decor inspired by LSD - Careful on the sweet baked goods, they have a LOT of sugar. Sometimes too much. Pro... More

Pros: -awesome atmosphere--if you've ever been to northern Mexico, you'd recognize Mi Tierra. It feels like an authentic Mexican restaurant. -food was well done--you get what you ask for, Mexican favorites that are done quickly for a bustling crowd. It's not gourmet, but the food is simple and tasty. -creative dishes on the menu that I'd not seen before, which... More

A very unique Mexican Restaurant in a block of similar shops. It allows you to shop for Texan, Mexican, and Southwestern souvenirs and trinkets while waiting for seating in this very popular restaurant and bakery. It is worth the wait as we were seated at a large table or our group of 4 adults and 3 grand kids. The decor... More

We ate at this restaurant as a group from work when I visited from Indiana. One of the gals in the San Antonio office recommended it. I am so glad that she did! The atmosphere was full-on Mariachi bar. The food was absolutely delicious. I had an enchilada with tomatillo sauce on it. This is now the standard that I... More

Very popular restaurant and bakery, that's obvious by long wait & big crowd. Hostess needs to learn customer service and not to take food off of plate while waitress passes by! Fajitas and flautas good.

Food in this place is great! We came out for an early lunch which I recommend because The later you come, the longer you'll wait for a table. We waited 15-20 minutes but if you have a bigger party, you'll wait 45! The place is crazy packed, the decor will definitely entertain you, since all the rooms have different Mexican... More

We visited for lunch and walked away impressed again. For a traditional Tex Mex dining experience you can't go wrong with a visit to Mi Tierra. Don't forget to get some baked goodies on your way out too!!

Wow!!!! This place is great. Enjoyed the food and the bakery. We know sweet bread but this place takes it to another level. The waiters are so kind and friendly. Margaritas are a must try. And the history pictures in this place make it unique!
