After trying several Mexican places in Casa Grande - we decided that Cafe de Manuel is the one worth returning to. A little different menu choices with tasty sauces and great salsa!! Enjoyed the tacos, enchiladas, beef soup, and steak ole. Can't wait to try something new on the next visit. Don't pass on this place.

I am not the biggest fan of Mexican food, but I like the lunch buffet here as its reasonable price and I can try a little of everything.

We wanted to have authentic Mexican food for lunch. I had the pozole buffet. First bowl of rojo pozole was cold, but waitress quickly warmed it up. It was just OK. 2nd bowl was better. Pleasant family atmosphere & reasonably priced. The chicken enchiladas were good & chips & salsa were quite good. All in all a pleasant meal of... More

The mr. judges Mexican restaurants by their shredded beef tacos, and Café Manuel serves the best around in the Casa Grande area. Just so you know, though, the chicken tacos are great also. That's what I usually have unless I have the cheese enchiladas with green sauce, or the gorditas, or the chicken chimi. All the food is good at... More

One of three restaurants listed in AAA book. Good Mexican food, friendly & efficient service, and moderately priced. We met friends here from Phoenix (we were in Tucson) before visiting Casa Grande Ruins.
