We left the downtown area in search of some good Mexican food - and did we find it! We ordered steak tacos...perfection. Huge pieces of meat, perfectly seasoned and grilled, served on tortillas over beans and rice with a tasty salsa on the side. I also ordered several different kinds of tamales - they have a huge selection (In addition to traditional pork or beef they also had cheese and jalapeno, pork and pineapple, coconut and raisin, strawberry...the list goes on) - which were excellent. The food was so good we stopped in again on our way out of town the next day. The restaurant is set up cafeteria-style, very reasonably priced, had off-street parking and a friendly staff. Highly recommended!

My husband and I stopped in for lunch last Saturday. First, although the parking lot was full, there was motion and we were able to find parking. Then we walked in, the line felt like it was going to take forever. But it didn't. They are set up like a buffet, except you don't serve your own plate. The food is out behind glass and you can see food being prepares. Lastly, you order your food, pay an then you are given a number so you can find a seat and wait for your food to be brought to you. We ordered the steak tacos. YUMMY!!!!!!!THEY ARE THE BEST EVER!!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE. YOU WILL LOVE IT AND WILL ALWAYS COME BACK.

You have not ever REALLY had a steak taco until you've had one from El Milagro on a four tortilla. On your way out grab a dozen of the tamales to go -- they're wrapped in foil and easy to freeze/reheat.

For very little money, you can have an excellent meal. My wife had Pollo Mole and I had a Mexican style beef stew. Both were delicious. They come with cabbage salad, beans and tortillas straight from the El Milagro factory. With two bottles of water, the total bill with senior discount was $11.30. Friendly service in Spanish or English. No margeritas or dos equos. Just good food at a very reasonable price. A factory store is adjacent. Free Parking

I've been away from the little village for over 3 years and first stop was El Milagro! Great food, good prices, fast, nice service. Love it here, my fiancé quickly realized he never had a real taco till he took a bit of these! Tacobell never again! This is so Authentic it's almost mocking to even say it.
