A San Antonio Must; Mi Tierra Restaurant

I went down to San Antonio from Austin to see some works of art at a gallery in Terrell Hills/Alamo Heights and afterwards headed to one of my favorite spots downtown, Mi Tierra.  You’d think the long lines and busy bar would mean a long wait time, but a couple of margaritas into it, no one cares. I’ve been going to this restaurant since I was a wee child, and every time I’m there, the nostalgia of my childhood comes back. I just love the place.  The food is surprisingly good for the number of people they run through there.
