Fodor's Review

In the heart of Market Square lies one of San Antonio's most venerable culinary landmarks. Opened in 1941 as a place for early-rising farmers to get breakfast, Mi Tierra is now 24-hour traditional Mexican restaurant, bakery, and bar. Its hallmark breakfasts are served all day, and the chilaquiles famosas—eggs scrambled with corn tortilla strips and topped with ranchero (mild tomato-based) sauce and cheese—are alone worth coming back for again and again.

Truly memorable tacos, enchiladas, chalupas, and house specialties, all made from fresh ingredients, are served at lunch and dinner. The giant, carved oak bar serves up aged tequilas, authentic margaritas, draught beer, and mixed drinks. The bakery has an enormous selection of pan dulces (Mexican pastries) and excellent coffee.

Awesome experience

Mi Tierra was awesome. The atmosphere was incredible with various musicians playing around the tables throughout the night. Then the full band of mariachis arrived on the scene. The restaurant is beautiful and full of culture. The food was great. Some of the most authentic I have ever tried. There's no beating their tortillas btw... none of that packaged stuff you get up north. Overall I would sy this place was great!

Good mariachis, anyway

Not a good place. My goat (a specialty) was almost solid fat. The rest of my group thought it was only OK.Surely a city with a heavy latino population can do better.
