Mi Tierra Caliente serves Mexican favorites in a dining room drenched in sun-yellow hues, catering to whole families with a kids’ menu and south-of-the-border drinks. Their fajitas feature the smoky flavors or grilled onions and bell peppers, which mingle with morsels of beef, chicken, or shrimp. Plates of carnitas—fried pork—or chicken with mole sauce come with tortillas and generous piles of rice and beans, which go together like rice and weddings or weddings and thinking about the philosophical implications of a mortgage. The colorful motif of Mi Tierra Caliente extends from the red and green sauces on tacos, burritos, and enchiladas to the painted wall insets at each booth, which host statues, bottles, and paintings. A live mariachi band serenades the eatery every Friday night, which patrons can enjoy while sipping on frozen piña coladas and daiquiris or Mexican beers such as Corona, Modelo, and Tecate.
