Wow. I've never reviewed a restaurant I did NOT get to eat at, but here it is. The reason? After waiting over 22 minutes AFTER receiving our drink orders, the waitress had not returned to refill the microscopic chip bowl OR take our order. Our waitress chatted with co workers and rolled silverware while every other waitress in the place... More

We went there with a bunch of friends and were seated and greeted warmly. Hubby said the chile rellano was fabulous...one of the best ever and I enjoyed the tostado. All our friends enjoyed their meals as well and said everything was very flavorful. Our server was great and made us feel at home, as if we were eating at... More

We have enjoyed this restaurant both times we ate there. The staff is great, so friendly and willing to make substitutions. However, the flavors are a little bland for those of us who regularly eat 'the real deal'. It is a nice place to meet friends - laid back and quiet atmosphere.

In town to visit relatives, they took us here for the excellent Mexican food and the entertaining band. The margaritas were tasty and the chimichangas were delicious. We had a ball singing and playing with the band. They were a fun-loving group and welcomed our crazy group. Our waitress was friendly and attentive also.

Green chili burrito plate with rice and beans for six bucks! Solid food deal. Chips come with salsa and a bean dip. Bottomless arnold palmer just right. I'll be back.

This is our place to eat when we want great Mexican food. The atmosphere is nothing special and the service you get is hit or miss at times, but the food is always good! Casa Grande seems to contain an overwhelming amount of Mexican food restaurants with very few worth returning to. Manuels has been a favorite for years for... More

Cafe De Manuel is our favorite Mexican food restaurant. We come here all the time and have never had bad food. The salsa is delicious. Some of our favorites are the Steak Ranchero, Pollo Verde, Menudo, and the Soft Chicken Tacos. The service is great and the people are all very nice.

In a word, disgusting. This is by far the worst Mexican food experience you could have in Casa Grande.

the carne asada tacos are to die for 'mouthwatering', along with spicy "appertizer" refried beans, and a cold corona or two, then to top off the evening, some "fried " ice cream, yummy.............great service always.......
