Def Worth A Try

My youngest daughter swears by this place and I have to admit, as far as Tallahassee is concerned, it's authentic Mexican as you will find. As a frequent visitor to Playa del Carmen, who stays in Centro and avoids AI's like the plaque, San Miguel brings up memories and the staff is top-knotch... read more

I've been eating here for years. Always a good meal at a good price. There are no better Enchililadas Verdes anywhere. Good beers. Good margaritas. Good service. While many restaurants have come and gone, San Miquel is going strong.

So much better than any of the other Mexican restaurants in Tallahassee. I'm addicted to the delicious spinach queso and the great margaritas! Plus the service is always on point. Everyone is very welcoming, attentive, and friendly.

We had read a lot of good reviews of this restaurant, so decided to try it out our first night in town. If it was a great place, we could come back several times during our stay in Tally. Our waiter was not friendly at all, almost rude at times. The food was ok, but nothing out of the ordinary.... More

Before eating at San Miguel's, I would not even think about eating much Mexican food. After being introduced, I have a hard time staying away! Thanks to them I've tried other places and have even eaten at a Mexican restaurant in Cozumel. Family and I always prefer to eat here, even trying other established places and chains. This is our...

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.
