I have been going to this restaurant since it opened. Tonight I had tamale with rice and beans; my wife had her usual chicken enchilada with rice and beans. Their tamales are still among the best I have eaten and only recently have I found a better Chili Verde. The one downside is that the staff is a bit lax... More

Very tasteless food. Had the beef burrito and the chicken taco and both taste like cardboard. It was no flavour in the food. Very disappointing. The service is ultra fast and the place has no soul. Would not go back again

The owner took my phone order, was extremely rude, and got it all wrong. When I called to let her know she refused to take responsibility. This place has gone downhill!! Bad attitudes and not worth the trouble. Too many Mexican restaurants like Casa Azteca around the corner. :)

Good service, great chips & salsa. I had the chimichanga which was very good. Carne Asada is served like a steak, rather than cut up.

Today's visit was for an after work appetizer - guacamole was great and fairly priced. Love La Milpa for a quick lunch. Service quick and attentive. Great local restaurant

My family and I were in the area. Since I saw good reviews both on yelp and tripadvisor, we decided to try it out. The place is not huge but we got seated right away. Good menu selection. I was disappointed that they did not have fish tacos. I ordered camarones rancheros which was very tasty and spicy. My husband... More

Believe La Milpa is one of the better Mexican restaurants, is tucked away inside the OSH shopping center, and is mostly locals. The food is tasty and good, as well as the service, the only draw back is that the location is rather small and sometimes might have to wait awhile to be seated if busy. Would suggest to try...

If you are like me and love to find places the locals go when they want good food at a reasonable price, this is the place. For under 10 bucks, they bring you a combo plate with two items, rice and beans, and it is filing. Even when I'm super hungry, I usually can't finish it all. So price is... More

We were recently in San Jose and went to La Milpa Restaurant in Milpitas for dinner. My husband had the chili verde and said it was the best he's had in a long time. I had the tamale plate - wasn't the best I've had, but they were good. Service was good and prices were very reasonable.
