Authentic mexican restaurant that serves well made food and is a locals go to spot for good food. This restaurant is located walking distance from the Del and is a great choice for a quick bite or a full meal.

Had a very well made margarita, and they are known for the white sauce served with their chips. Wonderful. The meal overall was a little better than average (pollo asada), but prices and service make it a spot that we'll likely go back. Comfortable outdoor patio is easy to get in. Good choice for mexican in Coronado for lunch.

Miguel's is where everyone goes for Mexican on the west side of the island. Great outdoor patio, good food, great margaritas. Don't miss it.

Very friendly service and try to accommodate your taste. The prices are good for the area and plenty of food. A little bit too noisy but nice to sit outside. Was OK when you just settle in after your trip.

I had dinner at Miguel's. The outdoor seating is so relaxing at night. I would push for that seating. There aren't many tables outdoors but wait on it. Very Nice! The food was perfect. I had tacos and enchiladas! Fried ice cream was so delicious. Highly recommend this place..

This is your standard chi chi type slop Mexican food. We are talking generic grub on the big plates smothered with uninspired refried beans and bland rice that you find at anywhere usa. The guac is average. The food I think is just designed to make your feel so full that your satisfied. Look elsewhere if you want inspired seasoning... More

Miguel's in Coronado has been one of our "tried and true" spots for the past twenty years. Today, everyone in our party had food that was not very good at all. Two of us sent back our entree and we received the same not up to Miguel's standard of food. We just picked at our food and left. We have... More

We made reservations and arrived with eight people and were seated on time. The waiters and rest of the staff were awesome and the food was great, authentic Mexican food. The house Margaritas were delicious, better... More
