We loved this place. It was the best Chimichunga I have ever had. My wife really likes the enchiladas as well. Service staff was really good and quick. You should try this place.

Great: service; ambiance; cleanliness; chips; salsas; fresh guacamole; just about every food item, especially your summer Hawaiian specials, like the pork tacos. Not so great: rice and refried beans (as a matter of fact, the worst ever) - rice is sticky wet and tasteless, and the refried beans are dry and tasteless. Fix your rice and beans and you will...

OMG! I had one of the most incredible quesadillas that I have ever had in my entire life! Best description would be a fajita with a hot-sweet pineapple sauce infused into a homemade flour tortilla! I know you might think I'm exaggerating, but likely one of the top 10 Mexican dining experiences I've ever had. Yummy

Casa Mañana had some of the best service we have had in many years. Driving through from Phoenix, it's so nice to find that friendly, warm and sincere service actually still exists. My husband and adult son had the garlic shrimp taco which they enjoyed. They don't come with a side so they added beans. The chips and salsa were... More

My wife and I went here with our two young children on my birthday. We were seated right away by the friendly hostess, and the waitress brought us water and tortilla chips. The chips were both corn and flour--unusual, but delicious. If they offer the "chunky" salsa, take it. It's great. I got the Sonoran Enchiladas, which were fried masa... More

Coming back from Texas we were looking for a place to eat. We saw the sign and love Mexican so we turned around and decided to have lunch. Holiday and the place was packed. We found one of the two remaining parking spaces and went inside. The waiting area is large and we put our name on the waiting list.... More

Since 1951, Casa Manana is The Gila Valley's oldest Landmark Mexican restaurant serving many generations of families & friends. Our founders, "Gabby" & Emma Gabaldon began using family recipes & creating some of her very own. With a humble beginning in the original red brick house, guests couldn't get enough of of their food. Many additions were made to accommodate the many families that passed on the "Casa Crave" to the next generation. Original cast iron skillets used to make the green chili meat are still used today. The famous beef is still slowly cooked all night long using only a few ingredients and then hand-shredded. From freshly smashed avocados for the guacamole, award winning salsa to dip the addictive mixture of corn and flour chips. You are sure to discover your favorite dish when you stop in. The Casa family is waiting for you.
