We were recently in San Jose and went to La Milpa Restaurant in Milpitas for dinner. My husband had the chili verde and said it was the best he's had in a long time. I had the tamale plate - wasn't the best I've had, but they were good. Service was good and prices were very reasonable.

Eat here often as close to home. Food is basic Mexican, soups are very good. Service is quick, prices inexpensive. Dinner for two with drinks usually about $20. Not a full service bar as only beer and wine license but they still make margauritas.

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...

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).
