Second time visiting Coronado and both times paid a visit to Miguel's. Their Margaritas are made with fresh ingredients and have to be the best around the area. The chips salsa and cheese sauce are also very fresh and delicious. Many food choices and are made to perfection. Employees are kind and efficient as well. If you are visiting Coronado... More

Everyone enjoyed their food. Brought out queso and salsa with chips. . Very good. Margaritas tasty. They had no problem substituting veggies for beans and rice. Server and bartender were on their "A" game. We waited in the bar area for our table and she was able to move all drinks and appetizers to the dining area without a problem.... More

Fantastic experience on Thursday 5/18. Great service and incredible food. Returned on Saturday 5/20; the exceptional food made up for the poor service. Had two ask for drink refills many times, had to ask for salt and pepper twice, and had to flag down the waiter to get his attention for most of the lunch. They were apparently short staffed...

Mexican food is not my favorite type of food. I was visiting my grandson in San Diego, & he loves Mexican food, so he took us to Miquel's. The cheese sauce with chips were delicious. I can't remember what I ordered, but I know one was beef & one was chicken & they were wonderful. The sauce that was poured... More

Miguel's is hands down my favorite Mexican food place in San Diego and the Coronado location is beautiful. If you can make it past the chips and queso dip, the entrees are amazing. I always get the fajitas!

We ate their twice. Just a lot easier to go back where we knew the food was good. Reasonable prices and excellent Mexican food. Good variety on the menu and some choices for kids. Highly recommended.

They should honor their texting reservation sytem. Other pairs of guests arriving after we had were seated ahead of us! To get to our table, we were led thru a back room, behind the kitchen, down a hallway, thru a lobby and outside patio, and finally into a small room. Our drinks came quickly, as did our food. The waiter... More

My first visit here . The food was absolutely amazing and so were the drinks. 2 mains and 2 drinks around $60 . Service was fantastic . Drinks are a bit pricy . But I guess that's just common around California. We will definitely go there again.

My daughter recommended this place. The service was excellent but I thought the food wasn't that great. Salsa was tasteless as well as my meal.
