Prices have remained resonable throughout the year and they are willing to... More

The food comes out quickly and is delicious. It's family friendly and great for a Sunday evening meal. Parking can be difficult.

If your in town, you should be stopping through at Mi Tierrita. Authentic Colombian food. They know the demographic and they have pleased the neighborhood for decades. Class act.

We started with the Empanadas, they are so filling. The portions here are huge so you have to bring your appetite. I had a roast chicken platter. I shared that and it was plenty of food for 2 people.

After waiting patiently for another 10 mins we asked for our order and they never prepared it. We ordered 2 whole chickens and never received one of the breast wing pieces. To top it off the...

I've been to this restaurant dozen of times through out the years. I know when Colombian food is good. They used to have amazing food, but they've gone down hill since early 2000's. The food is very greasy and of poor quality (sorry a ton of not so great food isn't quality. Last time we went there were beets and... More

This is a chain restaurant and the one in Brentwood is the best. The roasted chicken is succulent and the price is right.
