Definitely won't be back here. Lacks traditional mexican flavor. Tastes cheap, store bought, bland. Priced well. For cheap mexican food, hit up Colimas instead.

A little pricey due to the location down town. I ordered a LARGE SHRIMP fajitas plate And the shrimp were no bigger than a quarter.

When in this area, Johnny Manana's is a place we always visit. Sometimes it is very busy, but worth the wait. Outdoor patio seating in the sunshine with big umbrellas is fun. Staff is friendly and the great food makes for a super lunch!

As if plucked out of the heart of Mexico is Johnny Manana's. Enjoyed the food (made per order), good salsa, good margs, (too) sleepy vibe and nothing going on if you dine in.

This is not an upscale place but serves good food at good prices. It is more of a self serve place where you order your food and pick it up at the counter. Located near the movie theater, walk to and from the beach and...More

I was just looking for a reasonably priced lunch when I came across this place, and I'mm glad I did. As you might expect, this is a Mexican restaurant. You order at a counter, and your food is cooked when you order it, not before....More
