I love the courtyard setting at Miguel's but when it's July in Tampa, Florida I tend to choose inside and so does my son so that's where we went last night - inside on a Friday at 7 pm. The place was hopping! We hoped to grab one last call for their Happy Hour that ends right at 7 pm,... read more

Caroline was terrific! Attentive, suggestive and a great server. The food was excellent but Caroline was the best part of the day.

I been coming here for 4 yrs. It gets very packed so come early. Good is always fresh. Staff isn't bad. More parking in the back. Its gotten fancier as well in last 2 years. Prices aren't crazy either. The drinks will have you feeling it.

We've been a few times, we live in the neighborhood. Sometimes it's pretty good, sometimes it's below average. We get the same few dishes, but there's no consistency. Always crowded though.

Miguel's is always excellent. I have been several times and it is consistently great. The chicken fajitas are what I would recommend getting.

Always consistent and very flavorful food. Service is always excellent and the surroundings are clean. They have added more tables inside and an outdoor area.

We visited Miguel's at the suggestion of our grandson who lives in the area. Situated along Kennedy Blvd, a very busy street, it's not easy to get into the parking lot. A side entry of MacDill would be best. We were greeted promptly and asked whether we'd like to eat inside or on the patio. It was quite hot and... More

It's really, really great Tex-Mex food, which is different from Mexican. Some complaints on here mention how it's not "authentic Mexican"... they are right, it's not. It can be very busy at prime dinner times, but we arrive early with a plan to have drinks outside on the covered courtyard patio while waiting for our table. There are couches and... More

Let me start by saying my family and I have been regular customers for over 20 years but recent visits have not been as good culminated by our last one which was truly disappointing. My son always orders the fantastico (3 enchiladas: chicken beef and cheese) and requests all beef which has been no problem until last night. We were... More

A warm, inviting atmosphere, great fast service and most importantly the food was so good that I officially like Mexican food now. I'm very picky so this is big ok. the lights behind the bar constantly change colors that I'm pretty sure is considered therapeutic and really cool! WE WILL BE BACK!!!!!
