We've had a good dinner here. Restaurant looks very pretty inside and is a stone throw from the beach. Menu is huge. Starters and mains were delicious. Churros were amazing for desert. Service was pleasant and fast. I would recommed this place for very good food and if you don't want a bay view (and all the queues that come... More

What a great find! It is set back a little, you walk through a little "alley" to get here so we were pleasantly surprised when we saw how big it was. The food was AMAZING! The portions were huge and the staff was great. It was so reasonably priced I though they forgot to charge us for something! Highly recommend!

We were able to sit outside on a quaint patio. It was a great environment. Service was quick and quite friendly. The food was served quickly and was very tasty. The salsa is very good.

Went on a Friday night and they asked for a cell number. If you give them your cell number and download their app, you can watch the number of parties in front of you diminish, giving you a great idea of how soon you will be seated. Their homemade chips, salsa and cheese sauce (all brought upon seating) are delicious,... More

I have visited Miguel's in years past, but it did not seem very good on my most recent visit. It is very popular, so arrive early to avoid waiting for a table in the evenings. They bring warm chips with both queso (this was actually fantastic) and salsa. I ordered shrimp fajitas. The seasoning on the fajitas was bland and... More

We visited on a Saturday night so it was VERY busy. We did have to wait quite some time to be seated but it was worth the wait. Great Mexican food. Loved the fresh warm nacho chips and fresh salsa. I ordered chicken and steak fajitas and was not disappointed. Paired with a margarita it made for a great meal.... More

Service - mediocre. Parking - challenging. Chips and cheese sauce - amazing. I could not determine the special ingredient in the cheese sauce, which is delivered at the onset of the meal with a basket of fresh chips. Absolutely delicious. My dining companion also proclaimed his fajitas "the best I've ever had." I can't remember what I ordered for dinner.... More

The restaurant is an open eating area in a hotel on the main street Orange. Atmosphere casual. We had Carnitis and an enchilada with both entrees served with rice and beans. The food was excellent and better than most Mexican restaurants. What I liked the most was the food served was at the correct temperature. I hate tepid dishes. The... More

Great food and atmosphere. Sat outside under a canopy covered eating area. Had great enchiladas with beans and rice - food and service were outstanding. Price was reasonable.
