The food was ok, I would like to go back again with better planning. I think I was too tired from the long day and wait time to thoroughly enjoy the meal. The whole experience felt rushed. The margaritas while waiting were good though.

As Tegedder mentioned, most items on the Mexican food menu are GF with those exceptions. I'd like to add chile rellenos to the avoid list.

Mi Nidito has been serving Tucson since 1952. It was then that a couple from Sonora made a decision that is still impacting the lives of their family three generations later. The decision was between opening a Mexican food restaurant or a tortilla factory. The restaurant won and that is how Mi Nidito was created.Mi Nidito was opened by Ernesto and Alicia Lopez on the corner of 4th Ave and 29th street in historic South Tucson. The restaurant is now owned by Ernest Lopez Jr. and wife Yolanda. Sons Jimmy and ErnieIII help run the family business. The name Mi Nidito which means "My little Nest" was given to the restaurant because of its original small size.Mi Nidito has grown over the years, but has not lost it's quality and charm. It is important to maintain the friendly environment that has made Mi Nidito a family favorite.
