No me gusto means " I don't like it ". I really DID want to like it because I adore Mexican food and it is just a few minutes from my house. My love of Mexican food began when I went to Houston as a child to visit an Aunt Alma one summer- My first taco was a life changing... More

Another reviewer called this restaurant unimposing and that's the perfect word for it. It's a cozy, relaxed place and, while the business is brisk, I've never been there when it was over-crowded or noisy. The food is excellent; in fact, this is our favorite Mexican place in town, now that a certain other place down the road has become just... More

It's a very good Mexican restaurant (probably our favourite one). It is not crowded and very cozy inside. Benches have high backs, so you feel devided from other people. Food is very good and very Mexican ;) their salsa (which they bring you with chips) is very tasty and they have a home made hot sauce on the table. Waiters... More

We have been eating at this restaurant since they opened and recently stopped by while on vacation. The food never disappoints. We enjoyed the chicken fajitas the seasoning in the chicken is amazing. Felipe And his staff take good care of you always. This is a real institution and the only place to go for Mexican food in Tallahassee.

San Miguel Mexican restaurant is a little, unimposing place that delivers very good food without all the fanfare. I went for lunch and for just $4.99 I had chips and salsa, which were very good, two beef tacos and a generous portion of re-fried beans and rice. All were delicious. Although the place is a little rustic looking, it adds... More

This place is an institution in Tallahassee. I have been here with friends and family many times over the past twenty years. The food is always phenomenal and if you have any problems with any of it, they are more than happy to fix it immediately. The complimentary, fresh chips and salsa provided while you wait for your food are... More

we had a graduation party for my niece with 20 people. We made reservations for the patio and yet we were stuffed inside in a back corner where everyone had to get up to let someone out. The server was very short and abrupt. He obviously was not happy to wait on us. I ordered a chardonnay and it was... More
