“Very Mexican”
Review of Mi Tierra

Mi Tierra
Ranked #5 of 76 Restaurants in Monroe
Price range: USD 7 - USD 17
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.

The tacos were really good and nice atmosphere. My Mexican wife thought the food had excellent flavor. Salsa was good.

The food was delicious. The meals arrived in a timely manner with the exception of 1 entree and one soft drink. Had to ask another waiter from a different party to complete our order. Finally, at the end of the meal, our waiter returned and refilled glasses. The one person who got his soft drink late got no refills. Our dinner would have been fantastic if the service had been as good as the food. We will probably try the chain Mexican place across the street next time passing through.

The taco salad is good, with grilled chicken. The Queso Fundido is good (I like the mushroom & cheese). We like to get a side of the seasoned ground beef, with a side of chopped tomatoes and the hand-made tortillas and diced serrano peppers with lime & salt, to make our own tacos with the Queso Fundido.

Every trip to Monroe for work we eat here. It gets better and better every time. The service is awesome and even if they are slammed, they always are quick to take care of you. My husband and I tasted Heaven in the form of a "Grande Burger"- Beef patty, Carne Guisada, Over easy egg and cheese. I would never have tried it on my own, but MAN, I am sure glad I did. Eat here always, if you are in Monroe!

The best Mexican in Monroe. They get the spices right on all the dishes, the salsa is good and a bit spicy which we like. We've eaten here many times and they are always clean and always friendly.
