The staff seated guests so that social distancing was more than adequate. All staff wore masks and the place appeared very clean. When I asked about hand sanitizer, our server invited us to use one on the wall. The service was respectful and attentive. Our...food was served hot and was amazing! Very impressed!More

Wonderful dinner! All four of us enjoyed it so much. They are doing a great job with COVID preparations/restrictions.

We ordered online for Cinco de Mayo hours in advance of pickup. We went before the appointed time and the crazy began. They have no idea we had an order and the online number meant nothing to them. 45 Minutes later we cancelled the order...along with MANY other people waiting in the same boat. One had an order to be delivered and had to drive in and been waiting for 2 hours! They blamed the online company and took no responsibility for the issues. If you chose a company you need to understand when they fail YOU FAIL. I will NEVER frequent Manuels even if the food was FREE.I have to say this was a HUGE disappointment and an epic fail on their partMore

Stopped here during a failed spring training camp trip. The service was friendly and quick. Margaritas were tasty and the food was delicious. The flour tortillas were very thin and tasty. I have never had them so thin before. All homemade. The rolled quesadilla and...chicken carne picado were perfect choices off of their house specialities. Will come back next time we are in Phoenix.More

Stopped here based on the reviews. We were not disappointed. I had a Texas Margarita and it was very good. My daughter had the burrito especial and I had the tres enchiladas. Both were very good. The portions were generous. Overall a very good dinner....I would go again.More

Wow, what a sizzling heap of goodness; chicken, peppers, onions. Easily shareable for two. Add a margarita, and a beer and you have happy hour (or dinner for us) for $30 plus tip.

Authentic classic Mexican food can be found when dining at Manuel’s. From the moment you arrive you know that a big treat awaits. The staff is very helpful and friendly. They are always aiming to ensure you have a wonderful experience Their mixed fajitas were...top notch. Full of flavor and a bit of spicy from the peppers. The refried beans were cooked from scratch and seasoned well For dessert I highly recommend the fried ice cream.More

What a treat to have lunch here. My mother used to take us to Manuel’s in the 80s and 90s. And they still have the best salsa on the planet! The Pollo Especial is delicious. I just wish we lived closer to a restaurant. Gilbert...needs a Manuel’s!!More

We went on New Years Day. They were busy but we only waited 10 minutes for a table. Quick service, great drinks and food. We enjoyed the wait staff
