“Interesting atmosphere, laid back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

The atmosphere here when the sun shines in through the curtains is a lime-y green, somewhat reminiscent of tropical climes. It is in a house, so has a bit of a slower feel to it. The service certainly was that--and could have benefited from a bit more speed to it.

I ordered enchiladas and there were good. Nothing really stood out about this place other than the fact that it was friendly, unique atmosphere, not filled with pseudo-tourist Mexican kitsch, and also has a patio that would be nice in late spring/summer/fall.

I've only been once, but might return to take out of town guests there who like a quieter sort of setting. Next Mexican food restaurant to try for me would be Brody's.

“Delicious food pared with friendly albeit a little slow service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014 via mobile

Recommended by the front desk of our hotel. The food was very good, the price more than fair and the restaurant decor is homey, quaint and quirky. The servers and staff were very nice although it took longer than expected for our food to arrive and drinks and chips took a while to be refilled.

“Delicious Cuisine!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

This is a great place for having Mexican food at reasonable price. It was my first visit and I had taken two of my guests along with me because they loved Mexican food. I was a bit apprehensive initially, but when the food was served and we tasted the save, there was no confusion about the great quality! Moreover the food was served in great portions and the exquisite wines made our day! Superb Beef burrito and chicken salad, it’s really yummy!

“Not bad for Utah”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

Don Miguel was recommended by the staff at Abbey Inn and it turned out to be a good choice. We like to dine local when we can. I've had "the real deal" from East LA to Indio, Ca. where they chased me out of the restaurant, because they thought I was "La Migra".
First of all, you need to know that Utah liquor laws are a little twisted. If you want a shot of Sauza with your Tecate you have to make a choice. Beer or shot; beer or shot. YOU CAN'T HAVE BOTH at the same time. So drink the shot, then have a beer; or have a beer then take a shot. You can't sip a little of each. Weird! But the prices are a good value, so drink up.
The chips and salsas are excellent and a good way to start off while you decide on your dinner choice.
Don Miguel serves a full plate with all the sides, including a roasted jalapeno. We opted for the skirt steak. Our order for medium rare was served well done making it a bit on the chewy side. But hey; you're in a Mexican joint in Cedar City, Utah. Don't set the bar too high. Jessica provided attentive service and we left well satisfied, even though the steak was tough.
