We went during lunch and there are different daily specials that diners can order. I was after a Torta so I ordered the Carne Guisada Torta with grilled jalapenos. The sandwich was wonderful and the service was great. In San Antonio, Mexican and Tex-Mex food is typically a bargain.

Great tacos, especially after a night of celebrating! Wife and I had the Taco Loco, Taco Feo and Barbacoa tacos. All were excellent. Shared a bowl of menudo, but it was average (not much meat but flavor was ok).

Went here twice for breakfast...1st time I got the daily "Special" and It was fine....Went back 2 days later and had 3 of their Breakfast Tacos. Now those are GREAT! This place doesn't pretend to be anything other than what it is. It's a little worn around the edges in a gritty, working class neighborhood sort of way. My business partner and I (2 NYC guys) liked it. Had our wives been w/ us they may not have been as "excited". (Well, until they got their fresh soft-shelled tacos, that is....) It's not Dotties True Blue Cafe in San Fran....but the food is good and the service/attitude is very good. (Hint: Tip big---they don't charge enough!!)

These are the best tacos ever. It's a must when we travel from FTW. Barbacoa, lengua, nopales are only some of the best tacos. A must stop

Milagrito is one of the best cafes in the San Antonio and that is saying something since there is one on every other street corner. Don't expect linens and southwest fusion here, this is down home South Texas comfort food. I work just down the street and have been going there for 5 years now, and our 2 year old has been going there almost every Friday since he was born. There is nothing on the menu that isn't delicious, and a lunch for 3 only runs around $20.00. You cannot beat that! If you are looking for down home Mexican food without the frills or price, Milagrito is the place.
