Live music from a very talented band of musicians. Excellent food at very reasonable prices. First class service in a comfortable setting.

Stopped in on Friday night for first time there. Seats right away, noisy bar room with live music, lots of older folks dancing,having good times. Food and service was good, no issues at all. Above average Mexican dining, well presented. Had good pleasant outing.

Very friendly staff but the food is the real star! It was very flavorful and a real treat for the taste buds. If you're really hungry, order the tres amigos and your mouth will thank you!

We were pleasantly surprised with Manuel's. After spending the week eating at so many overpriced, underwhelming spots in Scottsdale, Manuel's feels like you're at a restaurant in actual Mexico. The chips and salsa we're perfect. I ordered the enchilada trio with the red and green...More

Food here is mediocre. Chicken is canned, shredded, unseasoned. Server coughed while he carried trays for another table. Really! Better Mexican restaurants are needed in this area.
