Cozy place, outdoor seating like a backyard. Warm and nice in the evening, with lights on the trees. The nachos chips and hot salsa sauce was very good, guacamole fresh and good. The plates are too big, I don't like throwing away that much food. One plate of fajitas would have been enough for two to share.

A very cozy restaurant located om a back yard. We came in on a sunday at eight and had to wait 20 minutes for a table. I ordered the pork tortillas. They were great, but the plate is insanely big.

Very average food. The atmosphere is decent great family place but not the most authentic. If you go and sit outside it is a little loud with birds flying around. If you are looking for a Mexican food fix it will do.

I've been coming to Coronado for years and never miss a meal here at Miguel's. Their food is consistently good and their "white" sauce they serve with chips and salsa is the best.

Great food; excellent server. Also good and drinks brought out quickly. Definitely recommend. Also very accommodating in terms of menu. I couldn't decide between two entrees so they combined. Excellente!

We visited the Cocina today for a quick business lunch. It is a nice location with very festive Mexican decor. There is a diverse menu of food and drinks. We also had excellent service.

The food was very good, and the atmosphere was comfortable. We stopped in the afternoon for nachos and soft drinks. I had eaten there before, so I knew it was good.

The title of the review covers it. The patio dining is comfortable, busy but not too busy. Location and atmosphere is relaxing yet special. Portions are fair sized, not too big. We have returned here many times (the last time I enjoyed the chimichanga!).

Miguel's is an old stand by. Always there,and always delicious. The happy hour menu will fill you up for less. Try the house Margarita. It comes in its own shaker and it is literally two in one. We love the patio dining area. The service is superb.

Nice patio atmosphere with a great staff. Mexican Food taste great. Margarita prices are a bit stiff for what you get but non the less good experience.
