Manny's is one our favorite stops when we are in LaCrosse. Today's visit had us trying a "lunch special" salad and the seafood linguine, both were tasty. Our server was helpful and efficient. If you have time to enjoy delicious Mexican cuisine while you are visiting or passing through LaCrosse, take a minute to visit Manny's Mexican Cocina - conveniently... More

Excellent menu item and added cherizo for additional zing. Hot jalepono peppers/carrots are a must. The staff is also very efficient and courteous.

I have had my first bad experience at Manny's. My mother and I ordered a salad (Fiesta salad with Cajun Shrimp--can't recall the exact name). We order this salad every time we visit for lunch because we love it. Today we were greatly disappointed. After tasting this we both immediately said that something was wrong with the dressing, very bland,... More

Took dear wife out for a Friday Night meal. Step #1 - order perfect margaritas (absolutely fantastic!). Step #2 - order a meal with fish or seafood. Mannys knocks the cover off the ball with its specialty sauces. It is best known for its Jalapeño Cream sauce- I had it on both scallops and crab stuffed shrimp. Wow! On my... More

If I'm looking for a local restaurant that serves great fish, this is the place that we go. Their Sea Bass is just amazing. I never had a bad meal there. The fish is very fresh and I assure you, you can't go wrong at Manny's. Their Mexican dishes are prepared very well too. Love this place.

If you go here, order one of their seafood dishes. They are a little pricier than your typical Mexican dishes but you won't be disappointed. I got the chicken burrito with the red sauce recently and didn't enjoy as much as previous seafood meals. Building and decor are very nice. Service was good. Have a margarita - made from scratch.

Was in town to visit family and wanted to grab a good dinner. Manny's is not a "traditional" Mexican restaurant. If you want that many other local options nearby, the old Manny's many years ago was this type of food but since they ended up on this end of town they have catered to a different clientele. This is a... More

We eat here 3-4 times a year and typically are happy (or we wouldn't go back). This time we ate with another couple, early dining at 6pm, usually a better time before the rush at 6:30 - 7pm. Food was good, but seriously we waited 1 hour 10 minutes for teh food. Good thing we had a lot to talk... More

nothing to complain about- food was good, service was good, margaritas were weak and don't bother. Our family of six had varied responses to the meals. Overall positive. Nice clean atmosphere. Hungry? Give it a try. Probably not a redo for us

When I'm on the road, Mexican food is one of my wants. I asked my hotel desk attendant and she gave me a list of restaurants to try. Manny's was one of them and I'm glad I dined there. Good food, service and atmosphere. I will be back next trip!
