Mi Tierra opens in Alexandria July 14

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) - The second Mi Tierra location is here.

Irma Rodriguez is preparing to open the Alexandria location for Mi Tierra this weekend.

Since 2004, the famous Mexican dishes from Irma Rodriguez and the Mi Tierra family have been keeping folks in Cenla satisfied and coming back for more. After years of their customers asking about an Alexandria location, it’s finally up and will be running this weekend.

Irma says people can expect the same "Mi Tierra Experience" at their new location, which can sit up to 130 people. Also available is a full-service bar and original Mexican art along the walls to enhance the dining experience. General Manager Andrew O'Neil tells us there will be some added bonuses to the menu, like vegetarian options and a tortilla station. Customers will be able to watch the tortilla-making process and order them fresh to-go. A live mariachi band will be performing for the opening weekend.

The grand opening is set for Saturday, July 14 from 11 AM to 8 PM in The MacArthur Drive Shopping Center next to Party City. For that day only, the Forest Hill location will be closed. During the first week, the Alexandria location will only be open for dinner, but will later provide extended hours and open on Sundays from 11 AM to 8 PM.
