About La Familia Cortez

In 1941, Pedro & Cruz Cortez started a three-table café at El Mercado. As the Cortez Family welcomes the third and fourth generations into the family business, we’re still providing great food, authentic culture and sincere hospitality as we continue our founders’ commitment to our city and culture.

Our Restaurants

Our family of five restaurants, Mi Tierra Café y Panadería and its adjacent Mariachi Bar, La Margarita Restaurant & Oyster Bar, Restaurante Pico de Gallo and Mi Familia, continue the tradition of authentic Mexican food and warm-hearted hospitality.

Gift Shop
