Certificate of Excellence

Description: Owners Jesus Magaña and his wife Lulis were born in the states of Michoacan and Zacatecas, Mexico and moved to Monroe. They opened their first restaurant, Mi Tierra in February 2001. The restaurant has earned it's way into the heart of locals and visitors who love Mexican food. The restaurant is a family enterprise with a staff of employees that includes family members and a whole bunch of very good friends. Mi Tierra offers an extensive menu of authentic dishes, as well as some healthy vegetarian choices based around green peppers, rice and cheese. The Magaña Family recommends the seafood enchiladas, the carne con camarones, the pollo asado, the milanesa, and many other delicious dishes. "For us, the customer comes first," says the Magaña Family, whose members have been working in the restaurant business for many years storing up ideas for the day when they finally would open their own restaurant. "We will make any request for you even if it is not on the menu; you just have to let us know what you want. We like this business and enjoy so much doing things the old style, where the customer is always our biggest priority." The menu is very authentic but has been changing to keep things interesting.

All the staff here are very friendly and the service is great. The drinks are not expensive at all which is a HUGE plus. They don't just give you salsa with your chips, you get this good bean dip too and the fajitas are so great! I used to only get them at another Mexican restaurant but now that I tried one here, I am hooked. I actually go here like, once a week at least. It seems like everyone has their go to Mexican restaurant and this one is a great choice. (:

Tried recently, was seated right away and then we didn't see our server for at least 15 min. We're about to leave when he finally showed up. Food arrived super fast and was ok. Don't plan to return.

The chips and salsa are spot on fare for a sit-down Mexican restuaraunt, but the fun ends there.

The service is slow and the food is medicore. My wife ordered a burrido and the meat had so much fat she couldn't finish it.

Also, they don't servce your standard Mexican rice--it has a slightly bitter taste.

Living in Arizona, it's difficult to eat Mexican food in other places and judge it fairly. Overall I would have to say Mi Tierra is decent. I had arroz con pollo which had good flavor. Too many peppers and onions though. My strawberry margarita had way too many ice chunks that kept getting stuck in the straw so it was difficult to drink. Chips and salsa were good. Atmosphere is good.

The food and service are very good here. The chips come with salsa and a dish of pico de gallo. The portions are generous, and the prices are fair. The ultimate margarita is great! Must try!
