Yes, I had heard that Il Milpa had very authentic Mexican food. Maybe I am used to Tex-Mex so much that it clouded my opinion, but this place did not wow me. You go to the counter to order and the food is prepared to...More

I lived in Mexico for 2 years and love Mexican food. I think La Milpa has really authentic menu. I usually go for the torta milanesa or tacos. Don't forget to try out the sala bar. The only thing negative I'll add is the prices...More

Excellent food and service! 24/7 open service, it's amazing! Real Mexican food. The tortillas, the tacos al pastor, carnitas. I will miss this beautiful place. For sure, I am going to come again in my next trip to Richmond.

I had the Mexican tacos, they were absolutely delicious. I tried three of the salsas and when they say hot, they are. I would recommend this place to anyone, it's fresh and has great little market attached.

Had steak torta for lunch and a daily special was chicken tamales so we tried one. Both items were very tasty. The tamale came without any sauce. Had somewhat of a language barrier but it's worth it

This place is the real deal: authentic Mexican food and a real Mexican grocery/market. The food is top notch, the staff is very friendly, and it's open 24 hours.

Was excited to find a Richmond option with Mexican breakfast on the menu. However, the Huevos Rancheros were cooked totally thru and rubbery with a red sauce that was heavy on salt and not much else. The Menudo (a niche market item, to be sure)...More
