Miguel’s Restaurant was founded in 1973 by Mike and Mary Vasquez in Corona, California and named in honor of Mike’s grandfather, Miguel. In 1975 they leased a fast-food restaurant located two miles from the current Miguel’s and named it Miguel’s Jr., which was an immediate success. Since that time, 17 additional locations have opened throughout the Inland Empire and Orange County including the newest location in Norco, CA.
In 1997, Mike and Mary relocated the original Miguel’s Restaurant a few blocks over to its current location in the city of Corona. The new restaurant opened on October 11, 2000. Orange County got its first taste of a Corona legend in the summer of 2004 with the opening of Miguel’s in Foothill Ranch. In September of 2008 the newest Miguel’s Restaurant opened lakeside at the Shops at Dos Lagos in Corona, California. Miguel’s; it’s different and unique, yet still embraces the traditional. A perfect place for families and for celebrating.
