Went here the other night with a couple girlfriends, I had been here before and always had amazing food but it had been a couple years, asked the waitress what she would recommend (cant remember what it was called) but tried that and it was fantastic- an enchilada with a taco and a toasted taco. The flavors are wonderful! we... More

We had a nudge for Mexican food, and so we returned to Tu Tierra. Lime margs are great especially with the homemade chips and salsa. The service is so quick and attentive without being overbearing. I felt like a combination plate so I chose Tutierra-never tried it before. Super yummy and hit the spot! My husband tried the beef burrito... More

We were at Calgary for some time and there was this Mexican restaurant close to where we were staying. That induced a desire in us to try Mexican food. This is a restaurant well located in south east Calgary with a good ambience. As we were seated, a basket of tortilla and a small bowl of salsa were already waiting... More

After much hesitation we decided to try this restaurant last night. The reviews are amazing but we were turned off by the asian looking sign and dated decor. But then some of the best restaurants are the 'hole in the wall' types so we took our chances. The food was fantastic! We were greeted with a bowl of chips and... More

Amazing, fresh, delicious Mexican in a great neighbourhood. Homemade tortilla chips are served fresh when you sit down with in house salsa. The bowls are my favourite entree.

Our whole family loves Tu Tierra and we keep going back for more. We often bring our out-of-town guests for their authentic Mexican food. After living in a non-touristy area of Mexico for over a year, this place brings back the memories for us with every visit. The food, the decor, the music, the drinks and even the plastic water...

The decor of this restaurant is simple and clean, making one feel comfortable. We arrived at just after noon, and the place was packed, but that didn't stop staff from making us feel welcome and providing fantastic service. The food is authentic-- not Canadian versions of Mexican food so that it's inoffensive to bland taste buds-- and flavourful, and the... More

I love Mexican and I wasn't disappointed. The food was very, very tasty and authentic. Even their refried beans were excellent. Oh and they had lots of corn options for the gluten-free diner, which I truly appreciated. Lots of Mexican places only have flour tortillas. The decor isn't fancy but I would go back for the food!

We wanted to try a different spot for Mexican food. Calgary is not known for its Mexican fare, so we continue to look for a good place to eat on a regular basis. We had not been to Tu Tierra for a number of years so decided to try it again. We had a couple of disappointments: My wife cannot... More
