I have been visiting this restaurant for years and years. Usually eat in bar area where they have music Wednesday - Saturday. Food is good, I usually order their pork (carnitas). Chips and salsa are always good.

The best item they serve is the salsa - hands down! So flavorful with the warm chips. Servers are pleasant, if hurried at times. Pollo especial is a favorite, as are the rolled quesadilla and layered Manuel's salad. A steady Mexican favorite!

Was expecting much better Mexican food in a state that borders on Mexico! Everything except the pork and salsa were very mediocre (these items were actually quite good). The place appeared under-staffed yet we did not wait an unacceptable amount of time to receive our dinner. Nothing terrible but nothing to write home about either.

It is hard to find an authentic Mexican restaurant. But this one is. They start out by bringing you chips and salsa. The chips are warm and crispy. Their tortilla soup is excellent. It is a meal in itself. Anything you order is very good. They have remodeled the building inside and out and it is very nice. They also... More

Looked like a lot of patrons meet there after work. There were so many choices on the menu. Overall, the food was about average for a Mexican restaurant. We were surprised at high total on the final bill, I guess because we had combination plates and our 2nd round of drinks was after happy hour, The waiter talked fast and... More

Was in Scottsdale for a meeting and was looking for a place for lunch. Google sent us to Manuel's. We eat regularly at the one in Glendale so we thought this would be a safe stop. We were not disappointed. We were seated right away and the place was clean and the atmosphere inviting. The wait staff was friendly and... More

"Manuel’s has reinvented itself into an all-in-one place to go for good Mexican food, a light-hearted fun atmosphere and staff, and great music. All ages will enjoy the ambiance, and seniors, especially , love the 3-4 piece extremely-talented band for listening or dancing. I recently ordered a dozen of their house-made green corn tamales after the waitress gave me a... More
