Our Pick: Mi Tierra Restaurant and Bakery, 218 Produce Row, (210) 225-1262,

 No matter what time it is or at what stage of intoxication you’re at, Mi Tierra has something for you. The 24-hour Mexican restaurant has been a favorite destination for San Antonians after the downtown bars close for decades — maybe even since the landmark restaurant opened its doors in 1941. Soak up a belly full of booze with a delicious plate of chilaquiles, breakfast tacos, or Mi Tierra’s award-winning menudo before you head home, or keep the night going with the mariachi bar’s strong margaritas in three sizes: grande, jumbo, and liter (yes, these are somehow all different sizes). Or maybe you’re feeling something sweet? Mi Tierra has that covered, too, with its panadería offering a variety of 28 breads and pastries. If you’re not interested in late-night binging but are in desperate need of a hangover meal the next day, this is also the spot for you. Have a lazy breakfast of tasty tacos or huevos rancheros among tourists (great for people watching) and like-minded hungover locals. But, a warning: You may run into someone you know at the San Antonio institution. Or you might see Bill Clinton and Coach Pop cracking jokes over tacos. It’s happened before.
