BEWARE!!

First let me start off by rating ZERO stars for this place. They are not worthy of 1 star. I have eaten at this restaurant 3 times and I must say each time progressively got worse. I'd like to speak about my most recent experience--I went to celebrate my 25th birthday on Friday 2/20/15 at 7pm with... read more

Very cool, authentic Mexican restaurant! Food at a great price. Service isn't too bad but could have been a little better. The food is of great quality, burritos are huge! Price is good for the amount of food you get. I'd say it's pretty cheap for most Mexican restaurants I've been too. Def the best Mexican food I've had in... More

Love the atmosphere here. Use to come with my sister when she lived down the block. The place is reasonable price. The drink specials were good but daily prices were average. I recommend it to my friends that travel through the area. This is a must try.

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.
