You’ll know you’ve arrived at Las Quatro Milpas by the line of hungry locals, tourists, and downtown workers on their lunch breaks. Family owned since 1933, this no-frills cash-only establishment in Barrio Logan is nostalgically referred to as grandma’s cooking. A side of homemade tortillas from the menu completes your Mexican comfort food experience. (Cash only, Open until 3pm, Closed on Sundays)
Barrio Dogg at 2234 Logan Ave is self-described Chicano comfort food. Packed with flavorful ingredients, these elevated street hot dogs take a cue from international recipes, but are uniquely Barrio Dogg’s own creations. Go ahead and take a peek at their menu.
Popular menu items are the El Xolito and El Pueblito washed down with a Mexican Coke. We also recommend the elotitos side dish. Families will appreciate the $6 kid’s meal.
