“Judge all Mexican Restaurants Against This Winner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2012

My favorite Mexican restaurant and I've checked plenty of them out all over the U.S. Highly recommend the steak fajitas, chicken enchilada verde (their green tomatillo sauce is delicious), bistec picado (strips of steak sautéed with onions, peppers in a tomato-based sauce), guacamole, machaca (for bfast or lunch- shredded beef with onions, peppers, egg), great red smooth salsa and chunky tomato salsa, and the list goes on and on. Bottomless sodas, wine margaritas (no full liquor license for tequila), and yummy sangria and for dessert you've got to have the flan.
It can get crowded but worth the wait or use their handy full menu speedy take-out.

“One of the best family owned Mexican restaurants in Santa clara county ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2011

One casual evening and my wife and i landed in la milpa in milpitas. On our way i read some reviews of this restaurant and let me assure you each one them makes justice to the food-service and excellent experience that you will get in this place. Be warned full plates are really full plates and they will fill you for sure. My favorites are chili Verde, chicken mole...fresh avacado on most of the appetizers...i am almost certain this place will become our favourite hangout place for some delicious food.

“Best Mexican Food in Milpitas for 25 Years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2011

I've been here a hundred times over the years. Same couple has ran the place day in and day out since the 1980's. Chips and salsa are a great start. Enchiladas are some of the best I've had. Friendly and timely service. Expect a wait (it's worth it - always has been).
