In 1973, Mike and Mary Vasquez took over an existing restaurant in Corona, CA and renamed it “Miguel’s” in honor of Mike’s grandfather. They struggled to make a go of it. Mike kept his day job and worked the restaurant at night while Mary developed dishes and recipes. Over the next two years, business improved to the point that they decided to lease a fast food restaurant just two miles down the road and named it “Miguel’s Jr.
Becoming an instant favorite with locals and travelers along interstate 91 between Orange County and the Inland Empire, Miguel’s Jr restaurants have since cropped up all over Orange County serving up fresh food from family recipes inspired by Mary’s childhood in Central Mexico.
The restaurants just launched a breakfast menu and is currently offered at its Orange, Tustin, and Costa Mesa locations.
