Most likely you were directed to this page when you search for the best Mexican food near me in Orem, Utah. Now that you are here, I want to give you an idea of why Milagros in Orem, Utah is the best.
“Mexican food” inadequately describes the 7 distinct regional cuisines that encompass that term. A dish famous in one area may be a complete mystery to someone from another region. Each region is as diverse as the geography, native Indians and outside influences.
With that said, Milagros is not the usual Mexican fare you will often found served Utah. Instead, you will find a fabulous menu from the Bajio region of Mexico (Michoacán, Jalisco, Guanajuato, San Luis Potosi and Queretaro). Mexican food from the Bajio is influenced by its rich farmlands, agricultural diversity, Spanish settlers and native Indian culture.
