Heard about Miguel's from a friend and the locals. Delicious! Great atmosphere, friendly staff, and yummy food. The Queso Fundido Mar Y Tierra was absolutely fabulous. Healthy serving for two and could be a meal for one.

We spend the winters on Coronado and always enjoyed meals at Miguel's. Last year we noticed some decline in food quality. This year it is almost inedible. Yesterday we ordered enchiladas suizas and chimichangas. Both tasted like they had been made days ago and reheated...More
