Mirrorless cameras are in a stage of development perhaps similar to the Exacta in the 1930s. The complete Leica camera system was far more versatile than the Exacta. Today's DSLR is more versatile than the mirrorless camera, but the potential of the later is tremendous. We ain't seen nothin' yet!

As I have previously noted the matter of 'better' is entirely subjective as just about every photographer's needs & intentions are different. Photo quality in itself is about two things: your sensor and your lens. The EVF or the mirror are just tools for the photographer, they do not affect quality. At the same level of technology, a larger sensor will tend to deliver a better image. To date, DSLR cameras have either 35mm or APS sized sensors... APS is about 1/1.5 the size of 35mm. Mirrorless have had APS, micro 4/3 (1/2 the size of 35mm) and even smaller (Nikon CX, PentaxQ). And Sony recently released the first 35mm full sized mirrorless, the Alpha 7 series.
Sensitivity is very important, for both dynamic range, high brightness and noise immunity at low light. Full 35mm sensors tend to have more pixels than APS or m43, but it's never a rule.
Ultimately there are good and bad DSLRs and good and bad MILCs (Mirrorless Interchangable Lens Camera). A blanket comparison cannot be had. Ultimately the final picture is made by the lens and the sensor and in both the DSLR and the MILC the lens and sensor are located exactly the same and have the same basic architecture.
