Editorial Review of Mi Tierra

It certainly is colorful in Mi Tierra. Pink stucco climbs toward teal ceilings, and swatches of sunflower-yellow brighten the walls. Purple donkeys, Christmas lights, pastel lanterns and Mexican flags hang jauntily. Tile-topped tables, colorful faux flowers, guitar-laden folk songs and a fake stream winding through the back room conspire to create a Mexico-in-Epcot feel. Grab a margarita at the (surprise! colorful) bar as soon as you arrive, then kick back and prepare for a tequila-laced, rainbow bright night that's best if taken with friends.

Mi Tierra's menu is comprised of 88 dishes (which means order-by-number fun) that fall into categories of appetizers, meat, chicken and seafood. Bonus: Prices are extremely reasonable. The Platillo Juve is a popular pick for pollo; for $9.95 you get a charbroiled breast served on a skillet alongside rice, beans, side salad, guacamole and corn tortillas. The Bistec a la Mexicana, a Mexican pepper steak with rice and beans, is only $7.95. "Mexican Favorites" offer chimichangas, tostadas and taco dinners. Sugary selections for capping off the meal include mini burritos ($3) filled with your choice of strawberry, vanilla or coconut pudding.

Average cost: $21-$30
