Las Cuatro Milpas- Finally made it [San Diego]

csils | Oct 7, 2009 12:41 PM

After much anticipation, I finally made it to Las Cuatro Milpas Saturday for lunch. While I will say it was not 100% to rave about, I think it is worth the trip, if for nothing other than to support a 70 or so yr old family owned restaurant.
we showed up at about 11:30 and as expected, waited in line for about 45 minutes. They did mess up my order (realized when I got home) though I ordered way to much food I wasn't to upset. Here's what I ordered.

Chorizo con huevos (it seems they gave me rice and beans instead, but they were the best part of the meal. I believe it have pork in it as well)
Rolled tacos- all in all ok, except they put tomato sauce at the bottom of the plate, causing really soggy rolled tacos. My least favorite of the trip.
Pork Tacos- what can I say, the tacos were great (though one negative was the tortilla/shell with out any meat in it seemed under cooked. not sure if this is a usual thing or just a bad taco.
Tortilla's were amazing....I should have gotten a dozen
Warning the hot sauce is HOT. I am a fan and thought it was good, but it did catch me off gaurd at first, so a warning to those who aren't huge spicy fans.

All in all I'd give it 3+ stars...The food was half great/half ok...but as a local favorite, I'd recommend a trip to any local...atleast once.
