We had breakfast here twice, service is good and the food was really good. It's very popular and we can see why after going there. I had the Migas they were wonderful

“Must visit if you're going to South Padre Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

My wife, two kids, and I went to Manuel's while on vacation. We went there twice and both times it was amazing. The breakfast taco is huge and very very good. The prices are great and The service was great. One of the guys working there made my little girl an origami swan. You have to get breakfast at Manuel's!

“Can I give this place 10 stars???”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Seriously, 5 stars isn't enough! We went here because so many people recommended it and we liked it so much, we WENT BACK before we left town! Food was unbelievably delicious and a HUGE VALUE! Kids' meals as low as $1.99, including a drink?!?!? They couldn't even finish all the food! Service was out of this world, and is of course, Manuel and his whole family. There is a reason that Texas Monthly Magazine has this place on their top 63 tacos, Top 50 Mexican, and Top 40 breakfasts in Texas! Cash only and closed Mondays... only open for breakfast and lunch. DO NOT MISS IT!

“Top Rated. Top Quality.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

The only, one, single drawback to Manuel's is that they only accept cash, which isn't a big deal, but can sometimes be an inconvenience. Otherwise, excellent food, excellent service, and a friendly atmosphere!

“BEST Breakfast Tacos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Come early and order the breakfast tacos -- they are so huge our college students had trouble eating the whole thing! The staff is so friendly. We love to start our day with Jose, Jay, Frank, and Lolly!
