“I love this place”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

I have been coming here everytime I visit San Antonio for years now. The food is very good. But more then that I love the atmosphere. The decorations and feel of the place are very unique. The waitresses all wear interesting uniforms. The singers are a nice touch & I had them play for us for the first time this visit. The service was better then ever this visit, & the prices are very reasonable. This place is a San Antonio institution & anyone visiting San Antonio should check it out. Great place!

“Fun atmosphere and great food”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Whole place is decorated to the hilt for a fun atmosphere, food was delicious. Drinks were a little to potent for my taste. Will be back during my next visit

“You just have to go!”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

And be brave, try the goat! This place is a feast for the eyes. It is open 24 hours and is huge. The decorations alone are worth the trip. There is a shrine to Guadalupe and to St Anthony. The most striking decorations are the framed outfits of the violinists. There is also live music. The guacamole was outstanding. I lied about the goat - it was bony and full of tendons, but all of my group that stuck to more traditional offerings were more than satisfied. The service was great and the bakery wonderful.

“a San Antonio favorite and tradition”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

I've been to Mi Tierras too many times to count. It is a San Antonio tradition. The rooms glow with lights, color and amazing murals. I'm always intrigued to find out which dining room will I be seated. The food is hot, authentic and delicious. So many options to choose from!

“A taste of San Antonio and Christmas”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Okay, so it is as touristy as it always has been. Our server had been working there for 35 years! Warm fluffy tortilla are the perfect compliment to a variety of easy favorites from the years. Tip the mariachis a couple bucks, grab a cold one, and remember life.
