great vegan substitutions - Edit

I was blown away by the ease of ordering vegan at Miguel's- the server knew recommendations, and offered vegan cheese and sour cream substitutes, as well as suggestions for vegan favorites. The fajita meal was huge and delicious- a special treat to have vegan cheese and sour cream at a Mexican restaurant. The guacamole and salsa were delicious. The ambiance was comfortable, and the margaritas were stellar. There are vegan empanadas on the menu that we did not try- we'll be back when passing through. The bill was not nearly as pricey as we would have imagined for all we ordered. There is also a Mexi-Paleo menu.

Pros: Vegan cheese, sour cream, and menu items, Vegan needs are understood, Good quality, ample portions

Cozy Vegetarian Comfort Food - Edit

Although from the strip mall location Miguel's seems to be a chain, it is not. In fact once I finally ate here I realized they were the good Mexican restaurant that used to be in Bar Harbor but have now moved to Bangor. They cook from scratch and source several ingredients locally. The complimentary salsa and chips were yummy and homemade and you can choose between, I believe, three different salsas with different levels of heat. They seem very accommodating of changes and substitutions and were happy to find out what exactly is in different dishes.

I had the Vegetarian Chimichanga but I asked mine not to be deep fried, so I guess it was essentially a burrito. It was the most cozy, yummy comfort food! Black beans, cheese, seasoned Maine potatoes and a Tequila mushroom cream sauce, topped with poblano cream sauce and crispy fried onions. Not something I would eat everyday but so delicious as a savory treat! My boyfriend had the Almond Cream Chili Rellenos, which we thought came covered in a sauce made of out of almonds. It was actually a cream sauce with slivered almonds in it which appealed to us less and it was a bit sweet for our taste. That's our preference, however. We'll both probably get the vegetarian chimi, fried or not, next time; so delicious!

Don't go to Chipotle!

Pros: Delicious comfort food! Good sized portions, Made from scratch with locally sourced ingredients, Flexible and accommodating

Large Portions - Edit

This place has such a nice vibe. I went in on a Monday night and the place was busy and chatty. I got the vegan nachos to go and they were SO good! The "cheese" is daiya and I believe the sour cream is Tofutti? But I am not sure on that. The chips are really good and the salsa and guac are yummy too. Nachos are my favorite food and now that I live about a mile away from this place, I think I'll be going a lot! So delicious. I definitely recommend! Portions are large and parking is super easy here!

Pros: Parking, Portions, Staff

Cons: Busy

excellent - Edit

Went here last weekend. Great service, great diverse menu. They have Gimme Lean for ground beef substitute, tofu sour cream which I assume is tofutti, and Daiya for cheese sub. REALLY great food. I'm vegan, as is one other person I went with and another is vegetarian, and all of our meals were amazing. Price point seemed fairly moderate but you get a LOT of food and total bang for your buck. Try the fajitas.

Pros: huge portions, lots of vegan substitute options, even more vegetarian options if that's your thing

Cons: not too much!

Good variety, a little bland - Edit

The best thing about Miguel's is that they have a wide variety of options for vegetarians, and they will accommodate vegans. You can get soy sour cream and soy cheese as sides. As others have mentioned, they offer soy crumbles or seasoned tofu as fillings for many of their entrees. Their margarita's are good, and they have a full bar. Since they are so accommodating to vegetarians and vegans, I really, really want to love Miguel's. Unfortunately, as a native Floridian, I find their food a little on the bland side. It is extremely popular with many folks locally, though.

Pros: Wide selection of vegan and vegetarian options, Soy cheese, soy sour cream, etc... available, Full bar

Cons: A little bland

Great vegetarian Mexican food! - Edit

While the menu is mostly meat focused, many of their burritos and other items can have any filling substituted for the meat, and they clearly list their vegetarian-friendly fillings: veg black beans, seasoned tofu, and gimmie lean. They also had an almond-cheese filled chili relleno on the menu. The waitress was familiar with their vegetarian selections and kindly guided me through their options.

The wet burrito ("burrito verde") with seasoned tofu and veg black beans I got was delicious and filling, though was typical of Bangor cuisine and not spicy at all (but they had hot sauce which nicely heated it up).

I give it a thumbs up if you're looking for vegetarian Mexican food in Bangor!

Pros: Many veg options

Cons: Menu focused on meat

Veg options! - Edit

So, it isn't traditionally Mexican (so. Cal girls KNOWS her Mexican), but it is close enough & delicious & the fact that they have several vegetarian/vegan options makes it a WINNER!

Pros: Tofu, Faux meats, Good guacamole

Miguel's Restaurant is very accommodating! - Edit

My family and I frequent Miguel's Restaurant and they're always very accommodating to my vegan needs. They have many dishes with beans and vegetables including burritos and other dishes easy to make vegan. If you love spicy food, they don't have a huge variety of spicy sauces but the food in general is fresh and delicious. They have vegan cheese and fresh produce so I always feel comfortable eating their food. The restaurant can be a little cold sometimes, so bring a sweater when you eat there! Although I'm also sure the staff would be happy to adjust the temperature if you ask. Overall a delicious and clean restaurant with a fun environment and a great interior design!

Pros: great food, friendly staff, large portions

Cons: can be cold inside

great option in bangor - Edit

they focus on local, fresh produce in all their dishes and the fact that they offer vegan sour cream and cheese as well as tofu and gimme lean so this makes it a easy compromise resteraunt if you are eating out with ovo-lactos or meat eaters. you have to make sure the beans or other fillings are vegan. some staff are more knowledgable than others, but they are friendly.

Pros: options for vegans across the menu, variety, local produce

Cons: some staff don't know how to veganize , can be crowded/slow, a bit pricey

Amazing Vegan Mexican Food! - Edit

Miguel's is by far my favorite Mexican restaurant (and this includes the ones I've been to in my hometown of Los Angeles). They are incredibly vegan friendly, totally accommodating to food allergies, and their wait staff are absolutely the best. You can get a choice of two different vegan fillings on almost any plate on the menu - gimme lean soy crumbles or seasoned tofu (I prefer the gimme lean by far). You can also order vegan cheese (Daiya) and vegan sour cream (Tofutti) in place of the dairy options. However, these choices are not indicated on the menu, but just ask the server for it and they'll be happy to do the substitution. There are a few plates that are a little expensive, but in my opinion totally worth it. My favorite plate is the vegetable fajitas. Soy grounds with peppers and onions, guacamole, vegan sour cream, vegan Daiya cheese, I always choose the vegan black beans in place of the vegan refried beans because I prefer them, lettuce, and warm tortillas. Absolutely DELICIOUS! They also have great deals on beer and a full bar. I've never left there feeling dissatisfied. I highly recommend any vegans that live in the Bangor area or any passing through to stop at Miguel's. You will not be disappointed!! I would give this place 5 cows if I could.

Pros: Very friendly, accommodating waitstaff, Vegan cheese & sour cream, Cheap beer and many vegan menu choices

Cons: Some dishes are a little expensive
