Oh yum!

Someone recommended Manriques to us last year when we were in Clayton but it was closed. Today it was open and we popped in for a late lunch. I thought I was back in Texas! Awesome salsa, divine guacamole, crisp, salty chips and yummy tacos - two people ate for $11.77 + tip. Oh yes! Headed back... read more

Best steak tacos I've ever had. Others I've tried were kind of tough and chewy but Manriques steak was so tender. We'll definitely stop there again.

A group of us from church goes every Monday for lunch. We call it Manriques monday. Good food at a reasonable price. Not your typical Mexican restaurant. Limited items on menu. What they do, they do it well. Unlimited chips and salsa. If you don't see it on the menu, just ask.

They have some of the best traditional Mexican food I have had in a while. Great food, great prices, excellent service. Only problem is I live 10 hours away!!!! I was only here for 36 hours and ate here twice.

Locals know that manriques started off as a Mexican grocery store with a window and two tables where they served authentic Mexican fare like street style tacos, tortas, coctales and the like. As the years passed the store grew smaller while the restaurant grew busier, and now they're running a full on restaurant with an extended, but still authentic menu... More

No matter what you order you won't be disappointed. Great chips and salsa. Everything is home made and service was very good.

The service is excellent. The wait staff is knowledgable and attentive. Mary Lou and Manual run a tight ship from service to quality of food. Our grand girls were in the mountains to visit for the weekend. Manriques is one of their favorite places as well as it is Poppa and Nina's. I had the Special plate with shrimp, tender... More

Manriques is a very reasonably priced Mexican restaurant and one we frequently go to. The food is good, the service is good and what more could we ask for?!
