We parked - saw a large line at a Mexican restaurant across the street, and with an eye wink we discovered Miguel's. On this Saturday around 12:30pm we were promptly seated and served. Our server deftly explained our dishes and even took 3 trips to...More

There was so much food on my plate! I tried the surf and turf burrito and it was excellent. Service was great. Nice place to eat after visiting Oldtown. I ate so much, I wanted to take a nap afterwards.
