Have been eating here off and on for the past 15 years and the food and hospitality is always the same. You know you will be greeted as friends and served quickly and efficiently. Food is consistently good and served hot and fresh.

Everything was reasonably priced ($4.50 for margarita on the rocks!) :-) My husband ordered the chicken enchiladas which were moist and very flavorful.

This is a wonderful place to go for great food and nice atmosphere. I especially love the Chicken Chihuahua which is not on the menu, but if you ask for it, is always available. It's not dog meat, but named after their dog as many of the items on the menu are named after family members.

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.
