So, let's be clear. If you walk in to Johnny Mananas and order a meal, it will likely not taste very good. Philadelphia has a brand of Cali-Mex that can only be described as the bast*** child of Taco Bell and the worst Mexican restaurant ever. I'm from California, so I take my Mexican food rather seriously. Now that we... More

I had lunch with a friend here and the food was good and the ambiance is interesting. Food tasted good and service was good. The only problem you will have is parking. The restaurant is located in a busy residential neighborhood. The parking spots are not metered, but they are limited to two hours. I'm just thinking that you may... More

I enjoy the food, and the margaritas here very much which is why I continue to go back. However, for the most part, the service has been terrible even when they are not busy.

like the decor, the cleanliness, the menu...don't like the fact that almost every time i go here the serving staff changes...the bar person was here the last few times, but she is really not friendly, maybe a little stressed...

Johnny Mananas has really good fish tacos and their margaritas are great! I have had other dishes there and it has all been good. It is in a good location with the ability to sit outside, weather permitting. I recommend this restaurant!

This restaurant is located at the corner of Ridge & Midvale. Their margaritas are good. And they have a good selection of Mexican beers apart from Corona. Food and service are very good. The indoor ambience is nice. But they do have outdoor seating.

The mexican food here is just ok, but there aren't a lot of places in East Falls to dine. It's a good atmosphere and the drinks are way better than the food. Excellent flavored margaritas.

If I Could Rate It Zero Stars I Would.... The Absolute Worst Service I Have Received In My Life. The Bartender Forgot About Her Customers... I'm Taking A Wild Guess Here That The Bartender Was Trying To Flirt With Certain Customers At The Opposite End Of The Bar That Me And My Girlfriend Sat At. However, Honestly Speaking With No... More

food really depends on who is in the kitchen...slightly overpriced. Go for the drinks and appetizers and sit outside when it's nice.
