Best Mexican food I've eaten in Georgia

We went here after receiving a recommendation from a friend. The restaurant was clean, service was friendly, but the food blows other Mexican restaurants away. I ordered a beef tongue burrito, and it was loaded with meat and fresh vegetables (including fresh sliced avocado, which I've never seen... read more

Decided to give this place a try on the way to Cherokee,nc. Best chiles poblanos I have ever had! Delicious chips and salsa. Cannot wait to try again. Looks like a dive from the outside but great food and service

Always enjoy eating here or getting takeout. Always courteous. Quesadillas are fresh. The avocado in them is fresh! Usually I get the chicken quesadilla with a Modelo beer. Salsa and chips are fresh. Cannot beat the great flavors and freshness for the price. A great deal in Clayton! Have met people from Franklin, NC that feel this place is worth... More

I seriously eat at Manrique's at least once a week. I cannot decide what I like more, the super burrito or nachos! Everything is always delicious and our server, Lupita, is so sweet and accommodating. I will continue to frequent this authentic Mexican restaurant.

Food was decent. Unfortunately, very run down and didn't feel clean. Seating is very uncomfortable. Not a large selection of adult beverages. Courteous staff

Simply the nastiest manager I have ever dealt with. I ordered a "super" steak burrito and specifically asked for chunks of steak, not that shredded stuff. Instead, I got ground beef and most of it was rubbery. I got take out because I'm a doctor working in the local ER. Instead of either offering to refund my money or give... More

Reading the reviews we expected highly prized food at this restaurant. In our experience it was just okay. The quesadillas and burritos which other reviewers recommended were good but the sides were inedible. Rice was cooked with lard so tasted awful. The beans were like paste with no consistency that it was once beans. The ambiance is so so -... More
