Miguel's is a treasure in the tundra of frozen Minnesota. I enjoy the hardshell tacos with hot sauce--some of the best in the state! frankweberauthor.com

This is a great place to eat in the Detroit Lakes area....which is the reason it has been going strong for decades! Quick prompt service at the counter & always friendly. They may ask you to have a seat & they will bring the food out to you. Everything is made fresh on the spot so food quality can't be... More

Our family comes to Miguel's almost every Saturday on the way to the lake. We love their tacos, enchiladas, nachos, and tots. They are always busy so we normally park behind the strip mall. The staff are always happy and the kitchen, eating area, and bathrooms are always clean. If they are very busy its always worth the wait.

I've tried a few of the fast food burritos. They mostly are terrible excuses for food. Miguel's breakfast burrito is GREAT. It is obviously made to order with real eggs, cheese, and bacon. No cheese sauce and not sitting under a warmer.

This is a wonderful place to stop for a delicious quick and reasonable meal. The staff is always friendly and accommodating and food is always fresh and hot. When my kids come back home to visit this is always on their list of must visit places before they leave town, some even buy food to take home with them! That... More

I was on my way out of town after a long day. I found it though it could have been confusing since I had seen two different addresses. A local I met had clarified where it was located. Food was good and I was on the road quickly.

This is a great fast food place, with sit-down booths and table/chairs. The food was very good and we were surprised at the inexpense of it. The service was top-notch. They have a great selection of fast food mexican. The only negative was that there was someone cleaning up the eating area, which is good and the place is really... More

This place is fantastic! We had nachos, soft shell tacos, cheese tostada, and a chicken enchilada. Everything was beyond great! Not your typical chain fast food. The staff was great to make recommendations after telling them we had never been. We will definitely return when we are in the area.

The place is clean. Adults cook your food right out front where you can see them. Family owned and operated. Drive-thru or sit in.

This place has a cult following because of the great food and original menu. Stop once, and you will end up craving it. I have friends who travel and plan a stop here. The best original dish - Tot Surprise. Yes, the owner is named Mike.

They recently moved--I'm not sure if this is their new or old address. The new location is very close to the old. This place is awesome! I can't believe no one has reviewed it already. Excellent food, fast service.
