Delicious Mexican food. I had the daily special, the Tres Amigos. 3 tacos, 1 carne asada, 1 pork belly and 1 chicken. All amazing! My friends had the chimichanga and veggie enchiladas and they were very satisfied

We ate at Miguel's in late January. We were seated quickly and had chips salsa and queso on the table in less than a minute. The server we had was attentive and answered all of our questions. We ordered a couple of mojitos (delicious) and the entrees. Entrees were good sized servings and the drinks were not skimpy. For about... More

We heard of this restaurant from local residents and couldn't be happier about finding it. In fact, it was so good, we ate there two nights in a row. First they bring chips and salsa plus something called white jalapeño sauce, omg it is so delicious. We actually asked for extra white sauce. The foods we had were all delicious... More

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in San Diego. Very efficiently run. The staff is top notch and the food never disappoints.

We enjoyed the Mexican food and drinks at Miguel's so much that we went three times during our weeklong stay on Coronado. The margaritas are wonderful!

This was our 2nd year in a row coming here to celebrate our anniversary. We came here for lunch last year and decided to do the same this year. The food was excellent and the portions were decently sized. I personally feel the price was on the high side but given the fact, the restaurant is in Coronado, I can... More

It took about 30 seconds from the time when my party of two asked for a table until we received a text that our table was ready. I actually wished for a bit more time, because I wanted to roam the alleys and peer at the shops that surround Miguel's and form an open-air atrium of a hotel. Service was... More

A lot of people really like this place, so definitely a personal preference, as I found the food to be heavy, bland and average. The atmosphere is buzzing, a lot of people and conversation so this place is good for groups. I have just had much nicer Mexican food. Also, the margaritas were a bit watered down and not full...

Salsa, queso, and chips are all free. Enchiladas and taco combo was good. Taco shell was homemade as well as chips and tortilla shells. Pollo asado was fair. Chicken was very tough, but came with a tremendous amount of food including fresh pico, tortilla shells- choice of corn or flour, avocado, rice, beans, onions, and fresh cilantro. Pricing was fair...

Latin/Mexican restaurant. I had the 3 taco sampler and others had an enchilada plate and one person had a steak. All were excellent and we went away stuffed. I would have given a 5+ based on the food but a bit moderate on pricing for Mexican but probably expected seeing as how this is Coronado and they are basically on... More
