Yes, I had heard that Il Milpa had very authentic Mexican food. Maybe I am used to Tex-Mex so much that it clouded my opinion, but this place did not wow me. You go to the counter to order and the food is prepared to order. Som this is not fast food. Know that going in. I had three tacos... More

Hello Micky, We are very grateful because of your very detailed review, it really help us. We are now working on our weak spots and your guessing was right, our chips are made with our own corn tortillas.

I lived in Mexico for 2 years and love Mexican food. I think La Milpa has really authentic menu. I usually go for the torta milanesa or tacos. Don't forget to try out the sala bar. The only thing negative I'll add is the prices are a little high.

Excellent food and service! 24/7 open service, it's amazing! Real Mexican food. The tortillas, the tacos al pastor, carnitas. I will miss this beautiful place. For sure, I am going to come again in my next trip to Richmond.

I had the Mexican tacos, they were absolutely delicious. I tried three of the salsas and when they say hot, they are. I would recommend this place to anyone, it's fresh and has great little market attached.

Had steak torta for lunch and a daily special was chicken tamales so we tried one. Both items were very tasty. The tamale came without any sauce. Had somewhat of a language barrier but it's worth it

This place is the real deal: authentic Mexican food and a real Mexican grocery/market. The food is top notch, the staff is very friendly, and it's open 24 hours.

The food was great. The prices were great. The service was helpful despite the fact we didn't speak Spanish and they didn't speak English.

I've been wanting to come eat here for a while and I'm happy I got the chance to. The food is amazing. Maybe the best pastor tacos I've had. Lots of meat on the tacos. I ate 3 and was stuffed, but of course i had to try the fried plantains and pupusa. Super yummy. When you come into the... More

Was excited to find a Richmond option with Mexican breakfast on the menu. However, the Huevos Rancheros were cooked totally thru and rubbery with a red sauce that was heavy on salt and not much else. The Menudo (a niche market item, to be sure) was equally unsophisticated, leaving out the hominy entirely (akin to leaving carrots/celery out of chicken... More

We extend an special invitation, on the house, to you and your family to try any Saturday or Sunday, the Pozole (traditional mexican dish with hominy and meat) or if you want to give another chance to our homemade Menudo (stomach stew with no hominy) We appreciate your comments, they help us to be better everyday.
