Mi Nidito.....My Little Nest
One of neatest places in Tucson to eat in is an area called South Tucson. There one discovers the best Mexican cuisine in town. You name the dish from Chimichangsa to Topopos to Enchiladas to Burros and how could I forget Chile Relleno,they are all delicious
There are two excellent restaurants in this area. One is Guillermo's, established in 1948, but the most famous one is Mi Nidito, which stands for "My little nest" in Spanish. Mi Nidito has been serving Tucson since 1952. It was then that a couple made a decision that is still impacting their family three generations later. The decision was between opening a Mexican food restaurant or a tortilla factory, but you already know the answer.
Crowds form early at Mi Nidito, and there is up to an hour and a half wait by 6:00 in the evening. Did I mention that the Margaritas are worth waiting for?
