We are new to the area and ordered Baja Fish tacos for take out after a long day of unpacking. I was unable to eat my order as every other bite had fish bones. We contacted the restaurant to request a refund but we’re told...by the manager, Jeff, that fish have lots of bones, just like chickens… If you prefer your protein to be deboned, you may want to reconsider this restaurant as that is not a priority when they are prepping apparently. First time customer- never returning.More

Several years ago, I did a first visit review on Manuel's. Through the years, this has become our go to spot when we have large groups of family and friends. It's usually for lunch and they always have the perfect spot for our crowd. We...love their lunch specials, and they provide separate checks, so it's easy to manage a larger gathering. Waitstaff is always very congenial and on top of everything and of course we love the food! Even the lunch portions are generous and always delicious.More

This is a good Mexican restaurant in Scottsdale. One of the best in terms of food , service and price. The dining area is very nice and comfortable. They have ground beef, shredded beef and chicken as the main stays. Service is fast and the...food delivery super quick! Go early on weekends as it gets busy!More

Visiting from Minnesota, we really enjoyed the atmosphere and food at Manuel’s! Our server was very sweet too! The salsa is some of the best we’ve ever had, I wish we could’ve brought a gallon home with us! Also great tamales, enchiladas, fajitas and margaritas!

We went in for dinner tonight and had a great time! First of all they have great chips and salsa! Just when I thought nothing could be better they brought out my dinner. I had the carnitas enchilada. It was like mana from the Gods!...The enchilada sauce there is outstanding. Just the right amount of heat to it! I loved the carnitas inside. The meat was moist and perfectly seasoned. It was a well balanced dish. I also really enjoyed their beans. My daughter had these cheese enchilada which was equally delicious with a good bean tostada.More

The food was ok, nothing stood out from the drinks, salsa & chips, to the entree. Sure good location & parking, but does not deliver. I went with a Meetup group again, but their goal is decent bank & room to dance & enough tables...to accomodate.More

This particular Manuel’s has great food and wonderful service. I love their chips and salsa. The perfect touch on a hot Phoenix day. They make an excellent cheese crisp. Crispy on the bottom and oozing with bubbly cheese on top. Just perfect except that I...want to eat too much. I had the Chicken Chimichanga which was first rate. The chicken was well done without being over cooked. They makes their beans the old fashioned way and it tastes like it. Their rice is also well done. My husband’s tostada was great. My daughter had a green corn tamale wither just the right amount of sweetness. Currently this is my favorite Mexican restaurant in town. They had a lively bar in the evenings for the fifty plus crowd.More

I went here with my wife for dinner and drinks and got everything I asked for - food was great, service was great but I mistakenly left my wallet and cell phone on the table. I went back about 30 minutes later and it was...in their care waiting for me to be picked up with everything present. Will certainly be back!More

My husband and I were visiting the Scottsdale area and wanted Mexican for Cinco de Mayo. The service was extremely fast, food was really good and the house margaritas were some of the best I've ever had! Glad we tried Manuel's!

Had our son in for a visit and we all wanted Mexican. This restaurant was referred by a friend. I had the mix and match, one beef taco and one carnitas enchilada. My partner had the chicken and son had a rolled chicken enchilada. Everything...was excellent. Service was very good. Always checking if we needed anything, if we were happy with the meals and all done promptly. If I had one complaint it would be the patio could have been hosed down and scrubbed along with the tables a little better. Opted to sit out rather than inside, but would likely sit inside next time. Go, you won't be disappointed.More
