Manriques has been around for years but the added seating has made it more popular these days. The food is fresh and made to order. The guacamole is great! The shrimp quesadilla is a must with big pieces of avocado.

Went for lunch on a Saturday. There is no "store" that I could see and the ambience is pretty plain, but this restaurant has some of the best Mexican food that I have ever had. Chorizo, tongue, and carnitas tacos on two thin corn tortillas with onion and cilantro are amazing and arrived hot with plenty of meat. Complimentary chips... More

I love this place! The atmosphere is unassuming, but the food is excellent! Never had a bad experience... it's always good! The campechana sandwich is the best!

We love going to Manriques and it has become a family favorite. We love the burritos, the shrimp quesadilla and their salsa. The food is always fresh and the service is friendly. Authentic Mexican food in Clayton!

Food is better than most, service, below average! I have eaten there several times, they have a good Burrito. My favorite, not on the Menu, is the Taco Salad!

This place was recommended to us for its farm to table food and it was really enjoyable. I got the chicken platter and my husband got the burrito supreme and they were both very good. Good chips and salsa too and a friendly waitress. A little pricier than most Mexican restaurants, but that was to be expected for the "farm... More

Genuine Mexican food. This is a no-frills, family restaurant. The Mexican "store" is nowhere in sight, but more room for tables. Menus frequently have items marked out, so keep a sense of humor.The tacos and burritos are generously portioned, and the fillings seem homemade. Quesadillas are terrific-filled "all the way" with fresh avocado, and your extras. Come with an appetite,... More
