We happened upon this and decided to try it...my husband had the chicken quessadillas and I had the steak fajitas...homemade guacamole ( so good)... He has a hand-lettered sign that explains his prices and ingredients...it is family owned and operated....they live up to the promise on the sign!

We have gone to Michaels for years. Great takeout Mexican food. They recently moved to a new location on Hwy 68 that allows for more in restaurant dining. Don't try to find them at Country Club gate. Still great food. Find the giant ACE HARDWARE on Hwy 68 and Michaels is across the parking lot.

Scrounging for lunch options in Pacific Grove and we are so happy we ended up here. Fajitas and fajita salad were great! You also gotta love the refills on the horchata! This place gets packed for a strip mall digs

I tried this little hole in the wall restaurant because I could smell the grill from across the parking lot. Had a fantastic grilled shrimp and mushroom quesadilla which was wonderful- -definitely worth a return visit.

We were looking for a taqueria and what a great find. Hidden in the corner of the Save-Mart center (next to ACS Discovery Shop) - we had a great take out meal for a group of 4. Good service, decent food and so easy! We had tostada's and a plate of nachos. They even substituted my iceberg lettuce for romaine... More

This is one of the best mexican places in PG/Monterey. It's also one of the best places for quick easy food. In and out. Not a fancy sit down place. I stop by here on the way home from work about once a month. Lots of food and I usually have some left over for lunch the next day. Not... More

Tucked in the back of a strip mall, it is hard to find when the sign isn't lit, but the staff is friendly and hard working. The chips and salsa were tasty, but the chicken and beef on my super platter were overcooked. The shrimp were just right.

After living on the Peninsula for 14+ years, this was our first and last visit to Michael's Grill. I had a burrito, my husband two enchiladas. Both not very tasty. His chicken had quite some gristle, my burrito was bland. We are Sarita's and Peppers people and maybe have different expectations of Mexican food. We were both very disappointed since... More

While staying in Marina, CA for a week, we ate at Michael's four times because the food was great. The chicken burritos were tasty and the salsa had enough kick; not too spicy.

Family run, food cooked fresh, many locals at lunch. Blackened chicken was good, beef good, salsa spicy. Right next door is the American Cancer Society resale shop where the Monterey Pennisula crowd brings their gently used belongings.
