My husband and I have gone to Miguel's quite a few times in the past. We have not been in a while, however, as we moved to southern Maine. We were in the Bangor area yesterday so we thought we would go to Miguel's since...we had fond memories of eating there. It was not good at all. Since my husband likes the salsa that it pureed and I like the chunky salsa which is like pico - I asked the waitress for both. We were informed that there would be an upcharge. Last time we were there, there was no upcharge.... I ordered the 2 taco meal with ground beef as my filling and my husband ordered a burrito meal. Neither one of us liked our meals. My fried taco shell was cold and it looked like fried grease. It appeared to have been fried well before I ordered it- probably at least a day prior. My hamburger had no seasoning other than just salt and the meat was not chopped up- it was big chunks of salty ground beef. The only thing on both my tacos was some lettuce, the beef and a tiny bit of cheese- and I mean a VERY tiny bit. My husband's burrito arrived completely dry and it was barely filled with anything other than some equally salted beef. If there was any cheese inside the burrito, my husband never found it. My husband was given a TINY cup of the same chunky salsa we got with out chips which my husband does not like. He wanted to get some sauce or something to put over his dried up burrito, but the waitress dropped off the plates and never came back to see if we needed anything until we were completely finished. Neither of us enjoyed our meal and we talked about how even at Taco Bell, the tacos have more in them. At least Taco Bell puts tomatoes on top. Anyway, we always loved Miguel's in the past but after last nights experience we doubt we will be back.More

I am very sorry about the disappointing experience. There was a couple of things that could have been handled differently which I will address with my waitstaff. While the salsa is not free refills we should have been happy to offer one of each kind...More

I was very surprised that Miguels did not follow state mandated protocol BY NOT GATHERING INFORMATION at our table FOR CONTACT TRACING! If we want to eat out safely we need to follow safety guidelines in this time of COVID19More

What a wonderful experience! Manager, Kevin Miller, has gone above and beyond on multiple occasions to accommodate my family. My family enjoys the atmosphere, food and spirits that Miguel's has to offer. We would absolutely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great meal!

I stopped by yesterday for lunch and am glad I did. Everyone from the hostess and the wait staff were very friendly and welcoming which made my visit extra nice because I was alone. The food was great! I had a Downeaster special and couldn't...finish all of it. It was quite flavorful. The chips and salsa were excellent too. I had the milder salsa and it had plenty of zip for me. I do not get to Bangor often but will go back!More

I have a colleague who loves this place so we go as a team every time he's in town. No complaints. The food is tasty and the drinks are too. And, good service.

I've only been to Miguel's once. For lunch I ordered the "tacos Mexicanos" with both grilled chicken and carne asada. The chicken was very dry and tough without much flavor. The beef was better but still pretty dry. I did enjoy the Spanish rice and...refried beans. What elevated the experience somewhat was the variety of hot sauces the waiter brought over. That transformed the meal from not very good to something of an adventure. I will probably try this restaurant again. I've been told that the almond cream chili rellenos are very good, but couldn't find them on the menu. They may only be served in the evening. In any case, the restaurant deserves a second visit.More

So glad I found this restaurant! Tried empanadas for the first time and they were very good. The spinach and artichoke were a great flavor combination, and I loved they were vegan. The potato’s and the salad rounded off the meal. Staff was also very...attentive.More

Located right next to the Bangor Inn & Suites...so convenient for Inn guests. We ordered the blackened fish tacos and the house burrito. Both were delicious. Their smooth salsa was so good we went back and got another order the next day! Portion size is...generous.More
