La Familia Cortez has been a fixture on the San Antonio food scene for over 75 years. Their story began with Mi Tierra, which Pete and Cruz Cortez opened as a three-table cafe serving Tex-Mex in 1941, and has evolved into a multi-generational, four-restaurant empire. The most recent addition, Viva Villa Taqueria, is helmed by chef and granddaughter Cariño Cortez, who brings a renewed dedication to tradition, as well as culinary evolution, to the family business.
