Taco Milagro in Houston is located in the Upper Kirby area of town at 2555 Kirby at the corner of San Saba street and it is always a fun place to go to and always has an alive and upbeat vibe; during the warm months (and being in Houston this happens often) you can enjoy sitting outside around the big fountain in the middle enjoying one of their specialty frozen margaritas or the new black cherry mojito.
Their busiest nights are from Thursday through Saturday when they actually have a Latin band play live with merengue, salsa and bachata tunes, which plays from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. But if you wish you can start by going early and having dinner and then stay to enjoy some music and dancing.
If you decide to go for the meal you can start out with the spicy shrimp tamales which are six tamales with jalapeños, cheese and diced shrimp for $7.95, or the quesadillas which come in four and Chihuahua and Cotija Cheese and you can ask for chicken for $6.25, or even a caldo de pollo which is chicken broth with chicken breast, roasted corns, carrots, potatoes, zucchini, celery, guajillo chili and cilantro for $7.95.
While for a main entrée try one of the house specialties like the chile relleno which is stuffed with Chihuahua cheese, pecans and dried fruit and topped with a chili sauce for $7.45 or the milagro nachos which come with refried beans, crema fresco, Cotija and Chihuahua cheese and fresh jalapenos for $5.45. And if you like tostadas go for the tostada Mexicana which is two tacos with refried beans, chipotle beef, and crema fresco all served with a tomato and jicama salad for $7.45.
If you want you can get a bigger dish with one of their platos festivos such as the pork barbacoa which is cooked slow in banana leaves and comes served with a spicy mole sauce, or the pork colaradito which is braised and served with a chili sauce and two cheese enchiladas for $8.25 or even a tasty grilled shrimp fajita with bacon for $13.75.
And for their drinks you can try their renowned milagro margarita for $6 a glass, or try it frozen with strawberry or mango flavors for $4.95, and you must definitely try the black cherry mojito since it gives the classic mojito a nice fresh twist to it for $7.
Parking can be rough but right behind the shopping strip there is a two story garage for the customers free of charge.
