Some of the best Mexican food I've had since Doris's Cantina in West Yellowstone closed. There chile cheese sauce was unique and very tasty.

Although the food was average, the ultimate margarita and deep fried ice cream made up for it! Had the enchiladas rancheros and we're not that good will try something else next time.

So, don't go to the fancy places downtown! Come here and eat in a great, small, family ran place. The food was so fresh and spicy. The carne asada fries were the best I've ever had. The tacos are just something you can't imagine!! Everything at my table was great. Service is the best in town as well! Our waitress... More

This property is a little thin on parking but please don't let that stop you, the food is very good. One tip is that if you are looking for a fun atmosphere take the stairway up to the bar on the 2nd level. Authentic Mexican food and the house salsa is special. Enjoy!

We discovered this place 4 years ago on vacation while staying at the dolphin. We found this page to be close and convenient! They happened to have happy hour which offered $3 fish tacos which were the best I've ever had. They also had this white cream cheese sauce that was to die for. With that being said, I returned...

We went to this restaurant on a recent trip to San Diego. The building itself is very nice. I liked the decor and they had what looked like great outdoor seating on the balconies. But, we didn't get to sit there. The place was busy and the food took quite a while to arrive at our table. The best part... More

I was traveling alone and had supper here twice. I sat up in the bar area, ate and watched the world series games. The food was great - fish tacos, and the staff was super friendly. I wish I lived closer to this place!!

It was not a bad place, good ambiance and decor. It was very crowded when we went and the the tables are a little too close together. I kind of felt squished. The food was average tex-mex and came in a fairly fast time. The queso dipping sauce that comes with the chips and salsa is awesome!

We came to San Diego eager to eat at a Mexican restaurant, since our hometown lacks anything good beyond the usual chains. On a night when nothing else seemed open, the second floor balcony at Miguel's appeared lively and inviting from the street, and we could see a line of people waiting through the open door downstairs.

It has very good food. We dine on a variety of appetizers. Their shrimp cocktail has unending shrimp. We had fundido there for the first time and has now become a regular dinner at home.
