Got the last table on the balcony. Despite being busy the service was fast and the food good and the beer cold! A good end to our Cal. Trip.

Typical chain mexican style of food, little on the bland side.. Perhaps it may have been because we ordered delivery, but the food came ice cold, took an hour and a half, and without cutlery when delivering to a hotel room. Experience might be different...More

The food was all great, but the Millionaire Margarita was amazing! Worth the extra couple bucks, at least for me.

We came in after a long day, topped by whale watching. We were really hungry and thirsty. And Miguel's really satisfied us. The food and service was outstanding. The only drawback was that we thought the pitcher of margarita's ($28) was a little light on...More

Hi jaascar16, I personally did not have a gluten-free meal (at least that I'm aware of), but they promote the fact that they offer gluten-free options! You can find a link to their menu on their website. Hope this helps! :)
