    Stick with the happy hour menu at the bar. They serve a very tasty jalapeno-queso dip with the chips. The margaritas are better than most of the ones I've tried around San Diego...

    Ask for the "special appetizer" that is NOT on the menu (some servers may not know about it so they will have to ask mgmt). It has seared ahi, calamari, and empanadas. VERY tasty and a great value!

    Delicious food. My carne asada was seasoned well, however the cut was a little tough. The cheese dipping sauces is legit.

    Home of the world-famous jalapeno white sauce, Miguel’s is San Diego’s favorite Mexican restaurant experience. Now in 5 locations throughout the county. Find Miguel’s online at brigantine.com

    All the servers I've had are super nice. Substitutions are never a problem and service is quick! Chips could be improved on. They are generally cold- nothing special. Chevy's chips are better.

    If you get a margarita be sure to hold the lid of the pourer or it will fall off and spill everywhere

    Bummer for vegetarians. Both the rice AND the queso dip are made with chicken broth.

    The margaritas are too sweet, thus leaving me to feel that this is an inauthentic Mexican food establishment.

    For a fast food experience this is good value, but, it is not authentic Mexican cooking!

    First time here. Had the bacon wrapped shrimp. I was not impressed. It was over cooked, and the seating feels more like a bar than a restaurant.
