Decent....nothing spectacular. You would expect a bit more being in such a great place. Food was good though. I would go back

This is a tricky review to write and a grade to give. We went on a busy and lively Friday evening and straight away I was enjoying the atmosphere and our pre-dinner beer whilst waiting for a table. It's an interesting menu with loads of delicious sounding Mexican dishes - many of which I wasn't familiar with. The problem arose... More

We enjoyed our dinner here and there ambiance was nice whether you were indoors or out on the patio. It's worth a stop.

5th annual April trip with my mom (she is 89 now) and 7th-8th annual trip altogether (my wife died 4 1/2 years ago, 2011 was the last time she was here). A "forever" tradition with family to eat here after the drive in from Scottsdale. Attentive staff, AWESOME chip dip, especially the white sauce. Addictive too. My mom's meal was... More

A friend and I visited Miguel's one night for an early dinner. We were actually referred here by someone we met at a convention, and boy was this referral on point! We ordered a pitcher of their house margarita and I kid you not when I say that this was the BEST margarita I've ever had! I mean it was... More

We were staying at the Del and wanted to grab an informal dinner so walked over for dinner. We were seated quickly. The menu had an assortment of typical Mexican cuisine. I saw chicken enchilada suiza, which is not always on a lot of menus so I was pretty excited. It was not exactly what I was expecting, as it... More

We ate here for lunch. The chips and queso were really delicious. Definitely loved the cheese dip. Our meals were also good. The portions were very large. I got tacos and enjoyed them. Service was good it wasn't too expensive.
