We love Mexican food and seek out Mexican restaurants to try. This is the best one we have had in a long time. We had the chicken and steak fajitas with flour tortillas and they were delicious! Best ones yet. Our server was so friendly, fast and very attentive. We ate inside, next time will we eat outside... And yes...... More

we went twice while on our trip. The first time everything was fantastic and the margarita was the best I have had. The 2nd time the food was still fantastic but the bartender must have been sleeping and forgot to put tequila in it! The array of different salsas was unique and all were great including the con queso. I... More

We would probably give this more of a 3 1/2. It was good food, but it wasn't excellent. Portions were large; I was dissapointed there were not more vegetarian options. It had a neat atmosphere with all outdoor seating and was a tad warm and humid, but that's probably part and parcil to local climate that we weren't used to.... More

For a traveler looking to Mexican cuisine on Coronado, Miguel's Cocina was an excellent choice. Good quality food, reasonable pricing, and short wait time, even on Labor Day Weekend. Good food, good beer, great time with family.

This is our favorite mexican restaurant. We love the food and the margaritas there. When we have out of town company in, we usually will take them to Miguel's for lunch or dinner.

This one was all on the same level with only a few tables outside, however, again the food was excellent and a good variety of it. Good prices also and good service!

We made the right choice dining at Miguels. The food was excellent, the atmosphere was great, it was busy, but not overcrowded. Javier, who served us was very attentive and friendly. When we got the bill we were pleasantly surprised, great value, would definitely go back.

While staying in Coronado, we were looking for some good Mexican food and Miguel's was the right choice. We went during happy hour and it got more crowded as the dinner crowd arrived. They make sure that those who have to wait for a table are happy though by putting out a big tray of chips with their various salsas... More

I like Miquels but it is in a touristy place so be prepared to wait. Best white sauce for the chips though!
