Somehow ran into this place while making a quick trip to Coronado with the family. Glad we did as it was one of the better meals we have had on vacation. Fish tacos were great and would definitely go back!

The Ms and I stopped in to eat the usual late lunch/early dinner recently, and ordered off the happy hour menu. The hostesses and waiter were gracious. This place is a sister ship of the Brigantine, and the happy hour drink menu is the same, regarding the wine. The only red wine offered, which is not made clear, is a... More

Huge restaurant with pretty good food. Was very crowed but wait time was less than expected. Nice atmosphere. Salsa and shaker margarita were great!

I have family in Coronado and they like to go to Miguel's. While its okay Mexican food, the wait can be easily 20-40 minutes even on a slow night, if you just show up. Use "No Wait" app for smartphone to get your reservations - that's what they use. Also get the guacamole or a small starter because your entrée... More

Miguel's is very average Mexican food and nothing you couldn't find at your local Mexican restaurant back home. For being so close to Mexico it lacks authenticity. I had to eat there twice for two different g meetings and had the same impression both times. However, the price is right.

Here for work meeting. Good place for Mexican. Prices are good. Service was friendly and food came fast. Was very loud for a meeting though. I could only hear bits and pieces of our conversation. I'd go back most likely

Our first visit was Friday afternoon where we enjoyed appetizers & Margaritas! The appetizer tray had a wonderful selection and everything was fabulous. Our second visit on Sunday was just for drinks & guacamole. Service was fast, clean & friendly.

This is a quaint little Mexican restaurant in a small alley area just off the main path that serves classic Mexican fare at reasonable prices. Just about 20 minutes from the Mexican border, it provides a tasty traditional menu. From the chips (served warm and perfectly salted) and salsa (fresh), through the lunch entrees, the kitchen did not disappoint, nor... More

This is really good spot for some fish tacos and a quick lunch with some business friends. I have been here before but it has been sometime ago and the food was still very good for lunch. I have not eaten here for dinner but really enjoyed the service and the tasty fish tacos. Very fresh and quick. Service with... More

20mins from Mexican border, classic Mexican food and service! I had chimichanga, delicious, certainly won't fit in dessert
