Excellent Food

This restaurant chain is really good, you get huge portions of food so you won't go home hungry. I have eaten at the Point Loma location as well as this one and both places have excellent service and food. When you are seated you get tortillas chips served with salsa and queso.

I don't know how this place gets a 4 star rating on Trip Advisor, the food has no flavor, stale chips and terrible service. A tourist trap for sure!

Been in this location for years and years. Nice menu and great salsa and chips. The lunch menu has big portions so you will need to walk it off. The staff is very accommodating and helpful.

This is a charming restaurant across the street from the Del. The food is good and we went there a couple times. I would highly recommend it for a casual lunch or dinner.

We were there for our 15th anniversary and we had brunch there. We had mimosas and omlettes. Warm tortilla chips, salsa and a cheese sauce. Fantastic service too!

The calamari was questionable, the drinks were okay, the salsa is amazing! We were seated right away and had water, salsa and chips almost instantly.

We (3 adults & 1 child) ordered drinks and food. Drinks are great! I found my food to be average. I wanted something full of flavor and my dish fell flat. We also ended up inside the restaurant which was crowded and warm. Wait for an outside table.

Food was very fresh, tasted good. Atmosphere was very nice, located outdoors but covered. Walking distance from hotels on Coronado Island.

We love coming here as the food, atmosphere, and service is great! I love the chimichanga, personally :) Miguelitos is awesome too for large parties to rent out, as I've done that and it worked out fabulously! Great for all occasions! Need to have a mariachi band around more often though! Not just on cinco de mayo :) Thanks for... More

Superior Mexican Food!!!!!! And some of the best Mojito's and Margarita's in town. The outside patio is so pretty and insulated with pretty greenery on the outside. It is a local place and I would highly recommend it!!!
