Restaurant is old but clean and tidy. Solid lunch and dinner specials and a very typical menu. This is your usual to better than average AZ local Mexican stop

Good spot for a great lunch special under $10.00. Chips are fresh, decor is kitschy, and service friendly and efficient. There are several rooms for parties or large groups. This restaurant has long been a special part of the Catalina community.

We went to Mi Tierra twice in the last week - once for dinner and once for lunch. Each time we were very pleased. The wait was very pleasant and made very good suggestions. The sea bass fish special is extremely good and the margarita (I think) chicken was also very good. Chicken enchiladas with sour cream are a great... More

With nine lunch specials at either $7.95 or $8.95, this is a great place in Oracle for a quick lunch that is a great value. We tried the two chicken and sour cream enchiladas and the red tamale. Both came with rice and beans in generous portions. I tend to like my food very spicy and found this a little... More

My friend and j stopped for a cold beer and some appetizers. We really liked the waitress, nachos and cold beers. I ordered XX beer in the bottle and the waitress brought me a very cold frosted glass for my beer. It was great. We had chicken nachos which were also very good. A good spot for an afternoon snack.

Went early on a Friday. A very busy night. . We're seated immediately, chips ad salsa right behind. Ordered the combo. Good choice. Enjoyed the enchiladas and chili rellenos. Good beans, rice a little plain, but more than I could eat. Will return.

We had avoided this restaurant for years due to bad experiences. Flies, surly help, questionable cleanliness. We gave it another shot recently and, my oh my, what a delightful experience! Cheerful, prompt service, bright and clean atmospheres, wonderful food. May become a regular choice.

There are not a lot of mexican restaurants nearby so we wantd to like this place. Took my wife here for her birthday. Huge disappointment. To start off there is nothing on the menu under $13 and this s not a swanky place. My wife and I ordered the grilled tacos which was supposed to be the chef specialty. I... More

Enjoy the Mexican food, especially the lunch specials. They offer coupons but often the specials are cheaper. If the restaurant is busy, you may have to pay for extra portions of salsa and chips. Lots of seating and parking. Mi Tierra has successfully served the community for many years!

It's been more than five years since we dined at this Mexican restaurant, and the food has improved significantly. It appears that management only hires people incapable of smiling. People are so friendly around here, it's hard to believe that an entire staff can be so lacking in graciousness. That said, the food quality is pretty good. The Margaritas are... More
