If you want the real Mexican deal, I recommend Manuel's! You will have to wait for a short time in the small crowded bar, but it's worth it. Try the Rio margarita while you wait. I had the beef burrito enchilada style. Very good. Give it a try!

We got there around 5:15 on a weekday evening and it was packed! However, we only waited about 5 minutes and were seated. Ordered the Garlic Chicken Supremo and it was delicious. Would definitely go back.

Some years back we had visited Manuel's. We decided to come back and see if it was still a good place for Mexican/Southwestern food. The ratings were high so that made up our minds. We had to wait about 20 minutes, but it was very busy and worth it. The margaritas were delicious and reasonable. Not too much salt, just... More

Loved our food. Make sure you make reservations as the place gets packed. Also, if you are sensitive to noise, go early. It got to be so loud we couldn't hear each other speak at the table.

Green Valley is a nice quiet and scenic place to vacation, however not well known for excellent restaurants. Manuel's may be the exception. A very nice atmosphere, combined with good food and service for a very reasonable price, I would definitely go there again. It can be quite busy in high season, so definitely make a reservation.

I travel in Mexico a lot. This restaurant is popular with gringos from states not near the Mexican border.

Been going to Wisdom's for years both in groups and with friends and family. The family that runs the restaurant is friendly, courteous and provides the best margaritas in Arizona (personal opinion which is shared by hundreds). Get there early (4:30 pm) for dinner during the snow bird season and if a large group (6 or more) better make reservations... More

You bet. Not many people go there for breakfast, but it is fantastic. Try an omelet with their spicy Mexican beef.

Visited by the locals and "snowbirds" alike. Usually crowded on the weekend. All the favorite Mexican fare is offered. Always good.
