Las Cuatro Milpaz, San Diego – A taste of authentic Mexico, close to the Convention Center!

1857 Logan Ave

San Diego, CA 92113

Located 1.2 miles from the convention center is Quatro Milpaz. It is about a 24 minute walk (according to Google maps, but I bet you can get there a lot quicker on one of those scooters)! If you go at the peak of lunch time, please expect a line. Their food is delicious and locals line up for the flavor. Full disclosure. I have yet to eat there, BUT there are many taco aficionados out there that LOVE this authentic Mexican food. (Check out the Instagram photo from the Tacotrail – Jose Ralat) Menu items usually include tamales, tacos, burritos, rice and beans with authentic homemade tortillas. The only meats are pork, chicken and chorizo. No alcohol.

This is a family owned business since 1933. Please respect that you will have to wait in line, but if you want authentic Mexican food without traveling far, this is the place to be. One point to note, at the time of writing this article, they are closed on Sundays. They are only open for breakfast and lunch thru 3pm, but can close early at 2pm at times.
