We went to Miguel's several years ago when it first opened and it was good. Since then the owner and staff have continued to improve this traditional Mexican restaurant! It has become, by far, the best restaurant in Bangor and the finest Mexican food in New England! Always fresh, often locally grown produce and meats, Classic flavors from several regions south of the border (we travel in Mexico every year), and fantastic margaritas (and you must try their signature shot, the Scorned Woman) make this a casual dining experience worth revisiting again and again!

If you are looking for Mexican this is a great place to try. Atmosphere is great, food is delicious and wait staff is prompt. I typically get the enchiladas and am very satisfied when I'm done eating. It happens to get busy in the evenings and suggest heading over for lunch if you like quieter dining.

The food is okay with large anounts of the usual stuff. Nothing really interesting about it but it is the style of Mexican foof that most people in the US are familiar with. We like Pepino's better and it is right ner there.

Sorry to hear that your experience with us was disappointing. It is reviews like yours wither negative or positive that help our restaurant improve the quality of our food. We hope that you will give us another chance in the future and maybe try some of the noted Authentic dishes in our menu like the Rellenos, tamales, carne asada platter, flautas, empanadas, as this is not Tex Mex,or fillings like shredded beef, pulled pork, and stay away from ground beef as that is very Tex Mex...thank you again...

My partner and I frequent Miguel's for a number of reasons. Not only is the staff friendly and helpful, the food is always fresh (and often sourced from local farms) and they have MANY options for vegans & vegetarians. Some of our favorites are the veggie nachos and enchiladas verdes! They also have a good selection of beer on tap.

Great local Mexican food. Also very moderately priced. I had the Chili Relano (sp?) and it was to die for. Service was great and I can see by the crowd it is a local favorite.
