I stomped on Manuel's by chance and I am so glad we did. My sales team ( 60 hungry engineers) wanted a place to gather for dinner and drinks. When I called Manuel we had less than 24hrs for the event and I was not sure if they would accommodate us. OH MY GOD, not only the welcomed the team,... More

I decided to try this restaurant since it bears my name . Ha. I ordered the shrimp tacos, and it was fresh and good, but the so-called homemade tortilla looked and tasted mediocre and the texture was stiff. The black beans lacked salt and was also bland. The star was their coconut Flan --- mmm mmm yummy!

Very good Mexican style, staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Only draw back was they only have bottled beers. Decent selection but would prefer draft. They do have a great selection of tequila drinks.

Pleasant atmosphere outside where the large tree serves as an umbrella. Excellent service, great margaritas, and good food too.

We enjoyed the Chicken & Beef Fajitas Quesadillas along with the Chicken Flautas. Their Guacamole is very good

I usually get the tostadas capitalinas or the chili relleno del elote. Excellent taste. The chips and salsa are memorable and you will want more. They have started charging for the salsa after the first delivery. Something that I am very much against and am unhappy with. My wife gets the vege flautas. She says they are wonderful. THe flan...

We visit Austin often and Manuel's is always a restaurant we visit. Downtown Austin is crowded and parking is often difficult and expensive and we actually enjoy the larger space of the Great Hills location. The service is always efficient and the wait staff pleasant. How's the food? Well, it is consistently delicious and there is something for everyone to... More

Manuel's is one of our regular restaurants. It is upscale "Mexican Food." The service is excellent and the chef is very attentive to the patrons delights or comments. The seafood is their specialty. We always bring visitors from out of town to Manuel's for a memorable dining experience.

Went here for dinner after a long day at a conference. (6 adults) I love the water features when you first walk in. It was a bummer that it was raining so we couldn't sit outside. The inside is just fine... warm welcoming environment. Our server Welton (sp?) was wonderful. Answered all of our questions, gave suggestions, and had fun... More

I am in Austin, Texas at least 4 times a year and my favorite meal is Chicken Flautas with Suiza sauce, rice and guacamole at Manuel's North at Great Hills! The seasoning and preparation are perfection. The atmosphere is welcoming, modern and well appointed. Appetizers are half price during their "Happy Hour" and it is a great time to explore... More
