I'm not sure why so many people in Corona LOVE this restaurant. Miguel's California Mexican Cocina & Cantina has poor quality food and bad service.
I know the restaurant has been around forever and it s Corona"Landmark". I get it the family gives back to the community, but that is no excuse for poor quality over priced food.
The over all quality of the food is terrible- bland and super oily.
Tortilla soup is one good way to check a restaurant quality and Miguel's is the worst! - very bland
The "salsa" is water with child powder in it. I was told is was Authentic Tex-Mex. Well my husband being a first generation American with a family who grew up in South West Texas and my self a second generation who has lived in Texas ... I can say they are full of it! it is want it is watered down chili powder. ( which is also the base of the tortilla soup)
I guess for me and my family the bottom line is:
Overpriced -Prices are higher than your average mexican restaurant.Go to Miguel's Jr. same food 1/2 the price
Average food- Need a menu update
Terrible service.-Rude servers, talk down to us when asked about menu items. Server was shocked when I answered her in Spanish ( I look like a white girl)
