Variety of food available. All good is cooked and backed fresh everyday. Food is also well priced. I'm actually surprised that they managed to keep the prices so low given the fact that they give you a lot of food per each order.

If you want an entire meal in a taco, go here!!! These tacos are huuuuge and soooooo very yummy!! I really like that you can see while they prep your food. It's usually packed but there's plenty of tables and parking.

The restaurant setup is very poor, to see the menu, you have to be at the checkout end of the line. When the line is long, it blocks the door going in/out. I got Guisado de Res, it was OK, rice and beans were bad. My wife's arrachera had plenty she could not even chew.

It's cafeteria style. Everything is under heat laps, but obviously fresh. You can see what looks good, and it's served quickly. I had a steak taco and a chile relleno. Rice and beans are served on the taco, which was ok. But the cabbage they put on there- great addition! And the steak was excellent, seared to perfection and flavorful.... More

The tacos at El Milagro are THE best tacos I have ever eaten anywhere! The tortillas are so fresh (and they make them right on the premises-yes, you can buy them there as well). I love either the Chili Rellenos or the steak tacos. What's best is that they use cabbage on the tacos instead of lettuce and that makes... More

We didn't eat at the restaurant which is next door but purchased fresh tortillas, masa and nixtamal corn from the tortilla factory. They pull the masa straight out of the grinder and the nixtamal directly from the bin. And the prices were amazing (40 or 50 cents/lbs). The tortillas were still warm. The fragrance is splendid. Plus, you get 45... More

This place used to be a place you went out of your way to go to, to get some of the best tacos. They have become one of the worst places I've been to in a long time!! The first time I was here I thought maybe they were having an off day by forgetting to include some of the... More

Went around 1pm and place was packed. Was a bit of a wait but assures me that the place has fresh food. Try the steak plate it comes with rice, beans, side of tortillas. Everything there looks good. If you are looking for authentic Mexican food this is the place
