Must go for quick inexpensive food

We enjoy Miguel's. Its not ground breaking but is reliable and the service is excellent. It's within walking distance from the Del Coronado Hotel. Try the ahi tuna tacos. They are much better than the sword fish tacos in our opinion.

Tucked away in a quaint narrow passage is this great Mexican restaurant. Saw the ratings and set out to find it. Boy am I glad we did! Outstanding food and fare. The chips and salsa (which includes queso) is great. Excellent customer service!

It was a delicious lunch. I took the server's recommendation and it was delicious! Their guacamole is delicious and a must order item.

Miguel's is an extremely popular Coronado restaurant which I feel is a bit overrated. There are often long waits and while the atmosphere is fun and casual the food is only mediocre. You're better off heading down the road to a much better place on Orange Ave.

A large party visit to Miguel's that was handled very well! The service by Mike was excellent, with guests straggling in over 1/2 hour. The menu is comprehensive, with some of the dishes combining unusual tastes into one dish. The Calamari Relleno was outstanding!

Had some time to kill while on vacation in Coronado and stopped into Miguel's and sat at the bar with a friend. They had happy hour from 2-6pm. The margarita my friend had tasted fresh. Not like a soda fountain drink. We found out they hand make their own margarita mixes daily. I had a glass of Hess Cabernet and... More

If your looking for a casual atmosphere with great Mexican food this needs to be on the list. The chicken fajita's were excellent. Reasonably priced with good service.

We had spent the afternoon at the Del Coronado and enjoyed the beach there. The eatery options there seemed pricey so we opted for better value and a casual atmosphere with great wait staff. A block away we found Miguel's and thought there tacos, burritos and margaritas were tremendous. Got a pitcher of Miguel's Ultimate margarita, delicious and refreshing. We... More
