“Excellent Mexican food!”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

As a St Louisan for the past 33 years, I can tell you that finding good Mexican food here is tricky. Authentic Mexican food is even tougher. Hacienda has been around for a long time and is a good place for (American-style) Mexican food in "southern" West County. On the other hand, places like Siete Luminarias and others on Cherokee in South City offer more traditional Mexican food, in a bare-bones environment, in an iffy neighborhood. Good food, but no atmosphere. Milagro Modern Mexican is a nice compromise between the two, offering somewhat more authentic Mexican food along Webster Groves main drag, Lockwood. It is much smaller than Hacienda, but nicely decorated. It is a restaurant that is family-friendly, in a nice commercial neighborhood. There is a crafts shop right next to it that kids might enjoy as well. The restaurant is decorated with a Southwestern motif, but some nice modern twists. The prices are reasonable enough though not cheap. The food is excellent!! Service was more than satisfactory. Our group had wild mushroom quesadillas, the chicken enchiladas, and Combo #64 (there are no other combos, and our waitress was not sure why it is called #64). Anyway, all of it was delicious. The house salad was also great, featuring tomato and Mexican cheese. The tortilla soup was also tasty. We were full after all this but still shared the caramel apple empanada with ice cream for dessert. Superb!! I highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a great Mexican meal, with more authenticity than the usual places in St Louis, plus a nice ambience.

“unusual Mexican”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

This place offers true gourmet Mexican. I loved the avocado dish. The outdoor area is on a parking lot but the food was very good.

“Good happy hour.”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

We have visited Milagro's several times this summer for happy hour. The decor is very nice. The service is also very good. They have real good prices on their happy hour menu as well as beer and margarita's. Get there early though because it is usually packed for happy hour. We haven't eaten dinner there yet but we hope to soon. I would highly recommend people to try it out.

“Great New Taste”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

Our family of 8 went there for Sunday lunch. I was suprised by the extensive egg-brunch choices, but opted for cool Ceviche and and fish tacos. Both hit the spot at the hot noon-time. All enjoyed their innovative food, even the 5-year old who devoured her cheese quesadillas and black beans. Hang on to your food, though, because the staff was very prompt in dish removal.
