The Story of Downtown San Antonio, TX's Best Tex-Mex Restaurant
In 1941, Pedro and Cruz Cortez opened a little three-table cafe for early-rising farmers and workers at San Antonio’s Mercado. Sixty years later Mi Tierra Cafe is a world-famous landmark - the place hometown regulars and hungry tourists go for authentic Mexican food and a warm Texas welcome. Our Tex-Mex restaurant is a signature of downtown San Antonio, TX.
Pedro’s and Cruz’s children and grandchildren continue the family tradition of good Tex-Mex food and big-hearted hospitality at Mi Tierra, which now seats over 500 and is still located in Market Square, El Mercado.
