Recently, my family and I were lucky enough to attend the grand opening of a new location in Huntington Beach, CA for Miguel’s Jr, which specializes in homestyle Mexican food. We were greeted with the option of choosing their homemade horchata or lemonade, and they both tasted incredible. In fact, their lemonade was so good I had to grab two refills, it’s really a treat.
Soon after that, I tried their Carne Asada Tacos and their Potato and Carne Asada burrito. While I did enjoy them both, I must say the best thing about Miguel’s menu is their tacos. Their tacos have a perfect amount of grease, they’re significantly larger than most tacos you’d find at other places, and the ingredients they use are simple and fresh. As I’m writing this, I’ve already gone back twice on my own after the grand opening; it’s that good and moderately priced.
I liked that Miguel’s menu was small because that means it took a lot less time for my fiancee and I to figure out what we wanted. More little thing’s I liked about Miguel’s newest location, in particular, are the decor on the inside and the art on display outside of the restaurant, pretty unique touches. What’s most impressive is the fact that this location has a drive-through window, so you’re getting restaurant quality food in the blink of an eye, that’s superb.
After my family and I ate, we sat down with the original owner of Miguel’s Jr and the CEO who happened to be the owner’s son. The CEO told us about his mother’s story, and what it took for her to build Miguel’s Jr into what it was today as they celebrate business for 40 years in the making. I found that he and his mother’s journey as they built Miguel’s was similar to what my mother and I are trying to build here at On the Scene with Mrs. Kathy King.
It’s clear that Miguel’s Jr want’s to give their customers homestyle Mexican food along with an inviting atmosphere, and they sure deliver! Speaking of delivery, you can order Miguel’s Jr on GrubHub and have it sent straight to your door! Now, before I go off topic, I’m going to conclude this post by giving thanks to Mary and her son for sharing their story with us and inspiring my mother and me to continue doing what we love here.
Until Next Time
