Authentic Mexican family owned spot that has been a staple for our get togethers for 20 years. We had a great time and a great waitress who has been there for 18 years... Filet with stuffed poblano pepper never disappoints.

Locally popular with decades of devoted clientele. Family owned with chef from San Miguel, Mexico. My husband enjoys the authentic dishes with chorizo, bistec, and chili relleno, while I go for ordinary Tex-Mex, which is also pleasing, but not above average. The owners usually greet us, often by name, and they treat all diners in this way. We usually visit... More

I read about this restaurant in one of the local guides that highlight happenings in the area. We decided to try it. The place is really nice and the wait staff friendly and courteous. The food was really good. I really liked the salsa as it was not too hot but still had some kick. The owner came by our... More

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.

Our family decided to try San Miguel Grill after finding it on Trip Advisor and reading the reviews. We weren't disappointed!!! Excellent food, great margaritas and fantastic service. Everything was reasonably priced ($4.50 for margarita on the rocks!) :-) My husband ordered the chicken enchiladas which were moist and very flavorful. I had the cheese enchiladas with chili topping and... More

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.
