“Good mexican food in a Danish community”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

My wife and I first tried Manny's a couple of years ago. Solvang being a Danish community, we usually eat at one of many Danish restaurants when we're there. However we decided to give Manny's a try since we both like mexican food. This trip we stopped in for lunch. We both had the two item combo plate with a cheese enchilada and mini burrito served with rice and beans. Entree's were good as were the chips and salsa. Service was attentive and restaurant atmosphere was festive. Price was reasonable as well.

“Their chili verde is fabulous”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

I am a local and eat at Mannys a couple times a month. It is affordable and service us fast and friendly. Food is good but not gourmet Mexican like an El Torito Restaurant.

“New location, same awful food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

We stopped eating at Manny's several years ago because the food was always greasy and literally gave us bellyaches. We hoped that with the move to the new location that the menu would improve. The new location didn't help. It's still terrible.

Locals have flocked to Manny's for many years for friendly service and tasty affordable meals. Now in their new location in the heart of the Danish village, this family-owned enterprise continues to dish out scrumptious favorites with a welcoming vibe.
