For some very nice Mexican food in San Miguel you must try La Cocina. Prices were reasonable and the food very good. A must try.

The Café de Olla and Red Chilaquiles were the best; we strongly recommended this restaurant to our friends and everyone enjoyed it. This is a typical Mexican restaurant; good food and good price.

The guacamole was good, as was the Aztec soup. We ordered too much food. I had the filet mignon and my fiance had the chicken fajitas. The filet mignon was rare. I mean really rare. That was my fault because I didn't know how it...More
