I want to add my voice to the people singing the praises of LaMilpa, a basic neighborhood Mexican restaurant in Milpitas. I was a weekly lunch dinner there until I retired in 2003 and my visit May 1, 2017 was the first time I was there in about 14 years. Nothing had changed. The dining rooms looked the same, the...

Traditional, fulfilling Mexican food. The staff are very friendly. The service is fast. It's best in Milpitas. My personal favorites are chile verde, flautas, and enchiladas. I'd say it's worth a splurge, if you're on a diet try a taco salad 👍🏼

We've been coming here for over 25 years. For you old timers, before that, we used to eat at El Faro in Sunnyvale, the restaurant of the parents of La Milpa's owner. This is some solid comfort food, folks. All your typical favorites are here. No, they don't mix it up with daily specials, nor does the menu vary. Due... More

Ok, this place is like when you would go over to your best friends house for dinner because his Grandma and Mom were cooking a big dinner. When you got there it was like being greeted by family. The food is awesome, all the local folks are there too. This is a family owned and run restaurant, thank goodness! This... More

I have been going here for over 30 years. Very quick service, friendly staff, fair prices. Real Mexican food. Parking is good. A little out of the way, in a strip mall. Friday and Saturday night can get busy. They are not open late....close by 9pm. Great mid week dinner or dinner before a night out on the weekends.

I've been coming here for years now, and have seen Ramon start running the business. He learned well from his Dad and Mom and it is as good as ever. The portions are large (I can never seem to finish it all) and service is super fast. They always seem to get my order correct, and just love the family... More

If you like Mexican food it's a place to go. We were a bunch of people and ordered different things where each was fine.
