First time there prices reasonable, food great! Would go again. Authentic, not hot, nicely spiced. Except for the 'hot' salsa which was too spicy for me but the people I was with seemed to like it.

Very disappointed in the meal we had at this restaurant. We went with three other people and they seemed very satisfied with their meals so maybe I just made a bad choice. Sending something back when you're sharing a meal with other people doesn't seem like the best idea but I should have said something to the waitress. Perhaps they... More

In town visiting relatives on a Friday night they took us out to Manuel's. What a great choice! With so many Mexican places to choose from this one really stands out. Our server Vivienne had only been on the job for two weeks, but she was very professional and a delight. The Margaretha's were well blended with quality ingredients. The... More

This is a huge restaurant with a patio, cantina, and dining room. The dining room is the quieter area for seating. The chips and salsa are good. It is nice for seniors to be able to order from the lunch menu. I had the chicken chimichanga and my husband had the pollo fundido. The pollo fundido was delicious, but the... More

The food tasted great. The atmosphere was inviting and the service very friendly. I would recommend this place. The only reason I gave it a 4/5 is I felt the price a little high. We had a $50 bill for 3 of us, and all we drank was pop. I was going to go "a la carte" because I never... More

Had nice Friday evening dining with friends. Very friendly staff and service, food was good, drink was excellent, prices reasonable. Chips and salsa excellent. Nice facility and early evening atmosphere... unfortunately, they use flatware for utensils that give a low level characteristic to the experience..

Everything was just great about Manuel's! From the starter nachos with a huge bowl of excellent salsa to the substantial and delicious fajitas to the super-flavorful enchiladas. The tortillas for the fajitas were very large so just a couple of BIG fajitas rolled up are quite filling. But of course we had to try enchiladas and they didn't disappoint. Very... More

We always enjoy the food especially the guacamole dip with flour tortilla chips. Salsa is the best! Casual atmosphere, we enjoy the bar seating area.

Manuel's is a nice Mexican restaurant on a main east/west street not far off of the I-17 freeway in north Phoenix. (Take the Bell Road offramp and go east about a mile. It is on the south side of the street before you get to 7th Ave.) The food is good and it is served quickly and efficiently by their... More

We love Manuel's for Mexican food. Tasty food and great service keep us coming back. I love the mini chimis and street tacos! The salsas are super tasty- I mix them together for a little more kick!
