Best Mexican Restaurants: Mi Tierra Restaurant & Bakery

Al Rendon

Mi Tierra Cafe & Bakery, San Antonio, TX

The neon motto of this San Antonio institution (founded 1941) is We never close. As you wait in the inevitably long line, strolling musicians, famous murals, and Christmas lights set an ever-cheery ambience. The admittedly Tex-Mex-focused menu includes mariscos, combo platters (served with rice and beans, none more than $8.25), and Enchiladas Mui Mexicanas. Mi Tierra delivers a generous, standard-setting experience—and if you’re craving classic deep-fried ice cream, you’ve come to the right place.
