“Could be more authentic, but pretty good food and great service”
Review of Mi Tierra

Mi Tierra
Ranked #14 of 114 Restaurants in Woodinville
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $7 - $17
Cuisines: Mexican
Description: Owners Jesus Magaña and his wife Lulis were born in the states of Michoacan and Zacatecas, Mexico and moved to Monroe. They opened their first restaurant, Mi Tierra in February 2001. The restaurant has earned it's way into the heart of locals and visitors who love Mexican food. The restaurant is a family enterprise with a staff of employees that includes family members and a whole bunch of very good friends. Mi Tierra offers an extensive menu of authentic dishes, as well as some healthy vegetarian choices based around green peppers, rice and cheese. The Magaña Family recommends the seafood enchiladas, the carne con camarones, the pollo asado, the milanesa, and many other delicious dishes. "For us, the customer comes first," says the Magaña Family, whose members have been working in the restaurant business for many years storing up ideas for the day when they finally would open their own restaurant. "We will make any request for you even if it is not on the menu; you just have to let us know what you want. We like this business and enjoy so much doing things the old style, where the customer is always our biggest priority." The menu is very authentic but has been changing to keep things interesting.

“Could be more authentic, but pretty good food and great service”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Order the Ultimate Marg and the fajitas and get over wanting authentic in Woodinville, would you? Menu has something for everyone and you can order almost anything ala carte. Well prepared, consistent, great service and they don't skimp on the booze in your drinks. This is better Mexican food than I've found in Phoenix and the prices are about the same. When we lived in WA we came here at least once a week. They remembered us, remembered I wanted lime in my diet soda and white cheese on my enchilada - what more can you ask for?

“Very good”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Mi Tierra is my favorite local Mexican spot in Woodinville, really strong drinks and a good varied menu. Food comes out lightning fast and portion size is large for the price.

“Great food at a great price”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

This is a great Mexican food restaurant with reasonable prices. These days restaurants are getting so expensive that many can now be labeled "special occasion only". Not so for Mi Tierra- good food at a great price with friendly service.
