Miguel’s Cantina is an authentic sit-down style Mexican Restaurant that employs a great mix of experience… the previous owners of Baja Fresh and native Mexicans who used to work at Senor Frogs in Mexico. The strategy allows Miguel’s Cantina to bring authentic Mexican cuisine to Rochester Hills.

Miguel’s Cantina seats 160 people and is quite colorful. One Miguel’s Cantina room has a cozy fireplace for the cold months, and another has a roll top garage door on a main wall to give an outdoor feel during the warmer months. The overall Miguel’s Cantina design continues into the restroom with colorfully painted flowery sinks and picture frames. The restaurant and restrooms are both very clean.

Miguel’s Cantina menu offers the Mexican favorites. Everything is made from scratch using quality ingredients, and they don’t use ground beef in any of their dishes; just shredded beef or steak. Other protein options include chicken, shrimp, and pork. Miguel’s Cantina serves up all of the traditional Mexican favorites – taquitos, botana nachos, flautas, quesadillas, fajitas, burritos, tacos, etc. Additionally, they offer some unique plates that you don’t see often at Mexican restaurants, for example, Puerco En Salsa Verde – slowly braised pork in a tangy salsa verde, or Pescado / Camarones – line caught mahi mahi or fresh shrimp in your choice of sauce, Mojo de Ajo (a butter garlic sauce) or Al Chipotle (a creamy, smoky chipotle sauce). We truly enjoyed the quality and taste of our entrees. Miguel’s Cantina offers gluten free items as well, and these are depicted with a GF on the menu.

Miguel’s Cantina prepares table side salsa for each party dining in. Although this was an interesting technique, the salsa wasn’t one of my favorites. I think it used all fire roasted ingredients, which in my opinion, over-powered the overall flavor. I prefer a fresh tasting, vibrant tomato salsa like Mexican Village offers. So, if I were looking to go somewhere for just margaritas and chips/salsa, this would not be my choice – even with their awesome margaritas.

Miguel’s Cantina offers housemade margaritas using agave nectar and fresh lime juice, and definitely no mixes! You can order by the glass or the pitcher. We had the Pomegranate and it was great. Miguel’s Cantina also has wine, beer and specialty drinks such as Rum Punch, Sangria, and the Michelada which is a beer cocktail made with Dos XX Lager, fresh lime juice, hot sauce, tomato juice and spices.

Miguel’s Cantina has lunch and dinner menus, as well as happy hour specials. Happy Hour is Monday through Friday 3-6 and 9-close, and Saturday from 9-close. Miguel’s Cantina also has Weekly Specials with different savings for each day of the week, Monday through Thursday.
