We went to a few Miguel chains in San Diego but Chula Vista is the coziest, biggest and the friendliest staff ever. I visited this place quite often and the staff has not failed me yet! Professionalism clearly shows on everybody that works here. Recently, Liz our server is just amazing!!! recommended a few entrees and was correct on every... More

Maybe we are just used to Tex-Mex, but this meal seemed average or slightly better. Had the cheese enchiladas and beef enchiladas with rice, beans, tacos and tostadas. Good taste, not great. Typical pricing for the CA area. But, we sure have had better in Arizona!

Food was very flavorful, I had the Chili Relleno and Ahi taco Delicious!!! The rest of our foursome had Fajitas, Chili Verde and Beef tacos. Service was excellent, waters refilled without asking, chips and the wonderful white sauce refilled without asking. We literally rolled out we were so full. Can't wait to go again

The food was ok the rice that had no flavor and it was hard and the onions and peppers in the fajitas where burn. Service was horrible, our server just took our order dropped it off and we didn't saw her until the gave us the check not even for refills. I would never go back.

Their 2 for $20 special is a good bargain. Food was delicious. Nice atmosphere. Chips and salsa are very filling and you have to be careful not to overeat them while waiting for your meal.

Love their white sauce! (It's a cheesy sauce that comes with the chips and salsa and it is SO delicious.) They also have happy hour specials as well as champagne brunch.

This is one of my favorite places to eat! The white sauce they serve with chips when you get there is to die for! The menu has a good variety of Mexican food. I love the shrimp enchiladas because it's smothered in that white sauce! But everything else is very good. Try the corn, it's really good. You won't go... More

My last night in California, and my Uncle and Aunt wanted to take me to dinner. Of course, I needed to find a place that offered gluten-free. The first place they suggested did not have good reviews for their gluten-free offerings, so I pulled out my trusty "Find Me Gluten Free" app to locate a restaurant in the area they... More

There was 6 of us having dinner on April 8th. First time for my husband and me. I loved the food. You get large portions but I was so hungry that I ate all but 1-2 bites. I would definitely go back. I love Mexican food.

We ordered a watermelon margarita, ceviche, and carne asada tacos. The restaraunt provides tortilla chips with salsa & warm cheese. Everything tasted good,but a little bland...not very special. The ceviche appetizer was $14.00, margarita $12.00 and tacos $13.00. Pricing seemed moderate and service slow (waters were never filled and silverware wasn't replenished after first course). Also, noticed all of the... More
