Good Food, Great Service

We ate here as a large group. Our server was so nice and friendly and she kept everyone happy with refills and quick service. I tried the famous award winning green chili cheese enchilada which was amazing! If traveling through the Safford area, it is well worth the stop as this has been here for... read more

Food was very good - not overly spicy so that my put some people off. If you want good, home-cooked Mexican food this is the place for you. They make their Margaritas from scratch - I mean everything! Well, don't know about the tequila, but everything else was fresh. I am serious that this was one of the very best... More

Tried out Casa Manana on our trip to Thatcher/Safford yesterday. It has been talked up by friends and family and we weren't disappointed. We'll definitely be back. Don't miss this great Mexican restaurant if you're in the area!

Our early dinner consisted of the day's special which was red chile burros. They were quite good. The chips were a mix of flour and corn pieces. Salsa was quite decent. Be sure to ask for the thick sala. Service was very slow in coming, but we hit at a time that seemed to be just before the 5 pm... More

Authentic Mexican food, it is hard to say exactly what that may be. It all depends what Mexican state the owners come from and what recipes they use and where they come from. Often a recipe has been handed down through the years. This is the case at Casa Manana. Our waiter explained that the restaurant has been in business... More

This well established (started in 1951) restaurant certainly gives value for dollar. Everything about it is truly first rate. The staff, food and service are excellent. Make sure that you order the caramel creme sopas, for dessert It is fantastic. Two things to be aware of. 1) Parking,The lot is not large and as this is a very popular resaturant,... More

The Mexican food here is good, nothing out of the ordinary, except for the Luau food in the summer. then they have BBQ pork tacos that were great and other unusual menu items. But the atmosphere is pleasant, nice decorations, cute building. It is a short walk from several motels. We liked it best of the Mexican restaurants in the... More

I crossed this area during a cycling trip and chances for trying Mexican restaurants were not missing! I was happy to add Casa Manana to my list. I had an honest, satisfactory meal. Quantity was certainly not a complain!
