I was surprised, given the delicious Mexican restaurants in San Diego. The food was just your ordinary Mexican fare and in our group of 6, no one had anything that was a standout. Service was good, it was a busy evening, but the food was just ho hum. I wouldn't return.

We ate here on a busy night and the wait was only about 15 minutes. They have a paging system that alerts your phone when your table is ready so you can easily browse some of the nearby shops. The atmosphere is festive and the service is amazing! Our drinks were never empty and when we ran out of salsa,... More

Very good Mexican food. Awesome cheese and salsa for chips too. Great service. Fast to get your food once ordering. Reasonable priced. Served large portions. Must visit.

Happy hour is a great price and the food is delicious! The queso fundido is worth asking for, but be sure to bring a big appetite!

Very good food, loved the jalepeno sauce that was brought out with the tasty salsa and very fresh chips. Service was not the greatest, had to ask for our order to be taken, but everyone was very friendly. The fish tacos were outstanding. Only downside to this restaurant is the parking. There are metered spaces, so be prepared, if not,... More

Great Service and Cocktails...the meal was pretty pedestrian. Try the calamari relleno - that dish is legit.

As a self-proclaimed foodie, I was highly disappointed in my meal...especially the chips and salsa! I sat at the tiny bar and the service was outstanding, however, the chips were hard and had no flavor. The food was served a little too quickly (kinda scary). Great margarita and super cheap bill, however...I do not recommend.

Since I was close to the border I made it business to find a great restaurant in San Diego. Trip advisor pointed to Miguel's which was a great choice. In the beautiful Coronado Island it was worth the ferry ride but the walk from the pier is too long. It was more than a hours wait and the hostess mixed... More

A little different than its sister restaurant, Miguels's, but a stand alone hit. Right next door to Miguel's and El Cordova Hotel.
