It is astonishing to me that in San Antonio there is so much horrible Tex-Mex. Growing up here I have had it all, West side, south side and its rarely better than mediocre. Milagrito puts my faith back in mexican humanity. It's simple, typical SA food, not the type to eat if youre a vegetarian or on a diet of any kind. Most of their dishes are strait forward, traditional South Texas, hot and fresh. The only issue I can remember is that the papas will vary and a few times have been over done. Great for Breakfast.
The inside is a little "hole in the wall" but so is this entire city. The tables are clean and the table side sauces are fresh. If you are going to be offended by chipped plaster, again, welcome to San Antonio. One note that can affect your server response time: English is spoken, however, not by everyone and it may be more efficient to order in *gasp* spanish.
