We were a party of 30 in for lunch. The chips, salsa and cheese sauce was never ending. Our orders were taken promptly and the food came out fast! Everyone LOVED their food! I couldn't finish mine as it was just huge! Took it home...More

Wasn't sure how to rate this restaurant only because I ordered something I've never eaten before - Miguel's Torta. It was basically brisket/cheese on a bun with mole sauce poured over the entire sandwich. I ate this with two jalapeno/cucumber margaritas that were absolutely delicious....More

We always make it a point to stop in at one of the Miguel's locations when visiting the San Diego area. Love the white sauce for chip dipping. The salsa is not as good, since it is pretty bland and has no kick to it....More

This place has average Mexican food and below average by San Diego standards. I’d give it a 2 stars if it wasn’t for their amazing queso dip that they provide for free.

LOVED this place! The only place I've found out in San Diego that brings you Cheese Dip! Outdoor patio is very nice and the margaritas are fantastic. We will be going back for sure on our next trip to San Deigo.

Miguel is a chain Mexican restaurant. They have a big bar but their margaritas are not very good. Their service was super slow and they have us a discount because it was so slow. I would about it for business dinner
