Always recommend Mi Tierra's to out of town guests. In my experience the food is always good. They are always busy and therefore service is not very quick however they can not be blamed for being busy, rather it's a testament to their reputation as a restaurant. Once you sit down the service is very acceptable. The atmosphere is festive and gives diners a real feel for the heart of San Antonio's spirit. There ma... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag Abuse
The atmosphere is great. The food is pricey but good considering the location and the mariachi and trio available for special occasions. Now the taste of food is something else. I think their plates are pretty filling. The cooks need to work on making better mexican rice. I have lived in SA all my life and that is the place we always take our relatives from out of town. Their Pan de Dulce is excellent. As for th... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
I know Mi Tierra is a tourist hot spot. If you're a native though, there are much places to get much better pan de dulce in San Antonio. MT puts cinnamon in everything, and that doesn't belong in all Mexican pastries. Try some other small family bakeries on the near-west and west sides. Been going to Los Cocos on West Ave since 1982, and they don't disappoint. I even mail their empanadas to my daughter in Phoeni... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
This was my husband, and my first time to San Antonio. My friend who has been here many times recommeded this restaurant.
I can't believe the reviews can be anywhere from excellent, to the worst ever.
I agree this may be just a tad pricey, but, it is soooooo worth it. It is the best Mexican food, I have ever had.
The portions are not small, as others have claimed, we are both big eaters, and did not finish o... view more
Do you like long lines in intense humidity? Like to pay insane prices for small portions? Enjoy waiting over an hour from the time you order until your food arrives? Like noisy/crowded places where old wait staff see you as another annoying anglo? Then you'll love Mi Tierra....if not, skip it. The food is pretty good, but nothing else here is.........Like this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
Food is borderline bad. I had been warned about this place and still thought it would be fun for our young kids. I was shocked to see our queso was $8.50. When it arrived it was a below average bowl of radioactive looking orange cheese product. Our meals were both over 14 bucks which is what I expected but it was no better than a popular 24 Tex Mex fast place we all know and love.
The reason we came was for the... view more
the place looks nice but that's about it.smallest basket or should say bowl of chips ever got in my life. Over priced little high. I think they just thrive on tourist who know no better! Go to anther spot like la margarita. Waiter was good old school did like that but the rest rude. They have exit and register line to get in don't go to wrong side because they will look at you crazy. Not worth the. Cost on food it'... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
