Nice restaurant

There were four of us and we were all really happy with our meals. Prices were reasonable and the service was great.

Love their cheesy jalapeño dip. I had the bacon wrapped shrimp. Yummy! It has a nice atmosphere. Probably the best Mexican restaurant on the island.

Miguel's is a locals' favorite and also hard to 'score' a table. Their selection is excellent and their margaritas are good. Come at lunch or dinner and hope to taste the best chips in town.

From a local...An intimate yet casual Mexican dining experience. My kids and husband love this place. Always expedient service and fairly typical Mexican food menu. Food can be heavy and the wait can be long. Suggest the carnitas for two and the ultimate margarita (easily get 2 pours out of it). Ask for salsa fresca along with your white sauce.... More

Miguel's restaurant. We love Miguel's. Fun local place. Good for kids. The margaritas come by the pitcher and are yummy! A great place to sit outside. Avoid weekend nights to skip the long lines. The white sauce served with the tortilla chips is wonderful. Ask your server for a copy of the recipe! Our grandkids love it!

Man, was this restaurant's entrance hard to find! But once seated, the menu is extensive but short on inventive. Good place for people with huge appetites.

We ate here twice. The first was lunch. Ron had brisket tacos and I had shrimp, stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon. The tacos were delicious, but the shrimp was overcooked. They have a wonderful creamy guacamole dip and of course salsa with chips. I had the ultimate margarita & it was fantastic! Our second visit was for breakfast... More

The portions were large and seemed to be affordable but since I didn't eat at other places on the island, I don't have a comparison of how it compares to others in terms of pricing. The taste was good but it could have been more flavorful. It was a bit under spiced. Service was fast and efficient.

You can't beat the location, Coronado is beautiful. We parked by the beach and walked around the Hotel Del and then decided to have brunch at Miguel's. It was a gorgeous day in San Diego so we sat outside at the cafe tables. Service was great and you can add champagne for $3 for brunch. My husband and I ordered... More
