This is another childhood fav! The chicken sandwich is amazing! The fried chicken was always a family favorite and we had to finish off our meal with a frosty!

I work close to this establishment but never had the opportunity to go until yesterday. I wasn't disappointed. It's one of those hole in the wall places that locals flock to. When I went during early lunch time there was already people waiting for their orders in the front of the front window. I believe that if you phone in... More

I always have to get a Manny's Burger when I visit Stockton!! They are very tasty and oh so filling. Manny's also has great customer service and their burgers are made while you wait. It might take a little longer than a fast food place but its well worth the wait.

Everyone tells me how nice the owner is at this location so I decided to try it out. First, the owner is only nice if you are a long time customer, which she knows on a first name basis. She was anything but nice or customer friendly to me. Second, she over-charged me for my order. Third, i was panhandled... More

I've been going here since I was a kid (24 now). And I just recently visited. Let me just tell you, the food is great. Totally authentic. Nothing like McDonald's or Burger King. The onion rings are to die for. Hot and crunchy. And what really made my visit a really memorable one was I didn't have enough to complete... More

Mannys Drive-in, NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH Mannys California Fresh on Pacific ave (these are two completely different restaurants) said so by the owner. Menus are similar but this Mannys is located in southside stockton almost by McKinley park/school. I've been to this place my whole life, walked from my house which is a block away. They've always had the... More

Love the Manny Burger. Roasted chicken is good, too. This is not a chain and you'll find some unique dishes. They even have whole artichokes.

Crazy good food that of course will kill you. Broasted chicken; chili, burgers of every sort, excellent fries, onion rings and even a nice chicken sandwich. High calories and great flavors. It is excellent at what it does. Try the shake! Just, not every day or it will get you.

We love MAnny's on the Miracle Mile! My husband and I met at Manny's on a sunny day in the outside dining section. He loves their rotisserie chicken and I love the salad and Carmel Sandwich. Very consistent high quality and great prices.
