Prob one of my favorite Mexican places

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.

Great service, nice attentive waitress. They were out of (hot) tea for my sister so she 'stole' some from the boss' stash. I had the buffet for $11 and she brought out a pile of homemade food for me to try. Sis and brother in law ordered off the menu and it was great too, fresh. They paid $5 each... More

We are from Mesa which is close to 2 hours drive to this restaurant. We have already dined here at least 4 times whenever we make a trip to Tucson. So far, we have not gone wrong with our orders. They are delicious and more authentic-tasting compared to most Mexican restaurants we have been to. Our favorites are their chilaquiles... More

We had a buffet style menu for our Christmas party. The Margaritas in the pitchers were fantastic! I liked all the food, except the taco shells had been under a heat lamp and exploded when bit in to and dumping all the food on me. That part sucked. The Chili Verde and Chile Colorado were excellent. Service was perfect. Great... More

Very slow service due to inadequate staffing. We ate here on Tuesday evening before Christmas about 6 p.m. There were only two servers waiting on about 20 customers. We had to wait for drinks, refills and it took a long time to get our food. The waitress picked up our empty chip bowl, but never returned with a full one.... More

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
