My wife and I love this place. Great authentic meals along with a great atmosphere. Margaritas on the rocks is a must try. If your looking for a good place to eat Mexican food then this is your place. Skip the chain restaurants and come here.

Met friends for San Miguel's famous Wednesday $2 margaritas -- and a little food, too! The margaritas are wet and cold. Fairly lightweight on the tequila (which actually works for me!). But hey, they're $2! Last night I had a really great bowl of tortilla soup. I like mine more brothy than soupy, and that's what I got. With huge... More

Been eating here for over twenty years. Haven't been in a long time as so many restaurants has opened closer to our house. Went back twice this week and forgot how wonderful the food is. Best salsa in town.

You will be welcomed warmly by the host as if you are a VIP. Tipical menu... What makes this place special are the fresh ingredients and fabulous service. If you live in Mckinney or just visiting.... Visit San Miguel Grill

The boys and I have always wanted to try this place, as has the wife, but we only pass it on the way to and from Church, and it is closed on Sunday. In an indecisive moment, we headed out there and had a Wednesday dinner. (1) the place is packed. On Wednesday. And the atmosphere is festive (2) it... More

We dine here often. The food is consistently great. Iced cold beer with cold mugs and good happy hour margaritas. We had my Dad's 80th birthday party here in a private room. The service is outstanding. Don't miss the chicken sour cream nachos and freshly made salsa.
