I'm so glad Manuel's is still serving Mexico in the Valley. We stopped in for breakfast, and it was great, and a good value, as usual. Their chilaquiles are always good, and hard to find elsewhere. The also have both red and white menudo, and both are flavorful. Their machaca is a winner, too. They have an expansive and attractive patio, too. I've also used this restaurant for catering, and have always been very pleased with the quality and presentation of the food.

The restaurant was very crowded - probably due to the holidays and folks getting out and celebrating.
The parking is bad since it gets busy and can't accommodate a huge crowd, so come early.
The drinks were excellent (Margaritas of all kinds) but the food was ok - not exceptional. Smaller portions than I would have imagined, plus the service was not the greatest. We sat a long time after the initial chips and dip and drinks. Maybe due to the huge crowd and not enough wait staff. And, not overly friendly.

This is our third or fourth visit and they never disappoint. From the time you enter you are made to feel welcome . It is a good thing we don't live in the area or this would be a fattening regular stop. The food is very good, always served hot and amazingly fast. Wish I had remembered our servers name, what a great job he did. Can't wait till our next trip to visit the relatives.

Arrived Friday night at about 5:45. Was seated immediately. Chips and salsa were already on the table. Jerry was our server and promptly greeted us and took our drink order. Several beer on tap including Modello and Dos XX.

They offer a nice Seniors menu at a reduced price with is still plenty of food.

Everything is good and the menu is broad so you will be able to find your favorite item.

Wonderful authentic Mexican Restaurant with great food, excellent service and a great selection of margaritas! Try the combination dinners...my fave is the Chilaquiles...or the mix and match. The green corn tamales are to die for! Good portions so we usually have enough for lunch or dinner the next day
