“Another Good Visit to Michael's”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

We have been coming to Michaels' in the Old Market for over 20 years. On this latest visit we only had an appetizer and drinks as we had a late breakfast and would be eating dinner earlier than usual. What we ordered was a little bland (lacked flavor) but was an adequate portion and the service was good. We keep coming back because we like Mexican Food, we like the Old Market, and Michael's brings those two together.

“Good margaritas, bad food.”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

We were disappointed to find the food very Americanized, and not even good Americanized. I had the breakfast burrito, which is certainly huge, but that doesn't make up for the waffle fries and overcooked slabs of egg layered inside. That is not a real breakfast burrito. My husband had a combo and said it was just average. Our kids enjoyed their hamburgers, which was further proof of the Americanized food. We were also not impressed by the sports bar atmosphere. Eat at a Taco Bell then go here for drinks. Don't waste your money on the food.

“Good food and drinks”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

We stopped in here after walking around the Old Market. We got some drinks and the chicken and steak fajitas. The atmosphere was fun and relaxing. We enjoyed our food, especially the steak fajitas, they had great flavor. The guacamole that was served with the fajitas was also really good! Our server was exceptionally friendly and quick. Overall ennjoyable experience.

“Lunch ok”
Reviewed 16 May 2013

... just your average mexican restaurant with typical choices. Service was ok, but the waitress seemed to be serving too many tables to be appropriately attentive.

“Yummy, yummy Mexican food”
Reviewed 21 April 2013

Just had to review this restaurant.....yesterday my friend and I were downtown at the Old Market area in Omaha, NE and she suggested we eat at Michael's Mexican restaurant as she said the food is very good. I was pleasantly surprised! We both ordered their tacos. The soft shell is lightly fried and is so tasty. They had a large amount of filling in them as well and you get a big bottle of mild taco sauce which I thought the heat in it was just right. That, along with a large glass of unlimited refills of pop made for a great lunch. The atmosphere in there was also nice. We had a booth right by a very large window so you can sit and watch outside at all the activities going on, which there was a lot of (Prom kids, Wedding parties, multi-passenger bikes, horse and buggy or carriage rides, etc) Such a fun area! My friend also commented how sitting inside we really couldn't hear all of the traffic noise either. Definitely will be going back to this place!
