Mi Tierra seems to be a favorite of the locals as it was recommended to us by a bartender as the best Mexican restaurant on the island and most cars in the parking lot have SC tags. The staff is friendly and service is great even during busy times. I always order fish or shrimp tacos and have never been disappointed.

Very good food, service, and atmosphere! Margaritas were delicious too! Avoid the fried ice cream though.

We have eaten at Mi Tierra many times several years ago. We were out sightseeing with friends and were near Mi Tierra on a Sunday morning. We decided to eat Mexican. I had forgotten how great and authentic the food is. I had two hard shell beef tacos. The taco shells were hand made and were super. The service was right on, food came out fast and the price was very good. Even though we ate there for lunch the portions were very large. The local Mexican population all eat at this restaurant. The atmosphere is well done but not touristy. The location is very convenient coming toward HHI just before the Cross Island Parkway.

We have finally found a place we can go on a weeknight to just grab dinner. Good, reliable mexican food like you can find anywhere in the country. NO, we are not in SoCal, so don't bother. And, this is not Haute Cuisine, so lets not be picky folks. This is cheesy, beany, messy mexican. Comfort food, with a kick.

Good fresh Guac that is not too spicy, so good for the kids.

We are happy.

I am a local and my family and I have been loyal, but on the last few trips we have been dismayed. We all enjoy the carnitas, which used to be great, but now a third of the plate is cartilage and bone. It is slow roasted pork shoulder, and well seasoned to be certain, but our preference isn't to have to de-bone or otherwise trim our meat before building our tortilla. The first time we let it go...the second, we were surprised. Tonight, after a third time of enough cartilage and bone that I could have bagged it up and made a stock, we decided to re-direct our loyalty. Margaritas are great, chips are great, but chew with purpose and patience if you order anything that may at one point have had a bone in it.
