This restaurant has been in operation by the same family for over 40 years. The service is usually fast and friendly and the food servings are always very large. If you are looking for authentic Mexican Food I always recommend when ordering their combination platters to ask for the sauces on the side otherwise your platter of food will be... More

A friend insisted we visited this rest since it's been here since the70's so I did. Food was terrible, I could tell that it wasn't fresh, rice was crispy, guacamole was brown. I should know, I owned a Mexican restaurant many years ago. It is not authentic Mexican food, its more like Amer-Mex, too much cheese everywhere even on the... More

We've dined there numerous times. LOVE the margarita club! We went this last Wednesday evening about 8 and they may as well have been closed. There were only about 5 tables in use at the time. We waited for well over 5 minutes to be seated all the while watching a server sitting at a table with customers chatting. Looking... More

My wife and I went to Senor Manuel's last night for the second time in the last month. If you like old school Mexican food, this is the place for you. If you are looking for the upscale, fancy, over priced Mexican food you probably don't want to go. The food and drinks here are very very good, there is... More

We come here often. Everything we have ever tried has been delicious! The food is always made fresh. We have never been disappointed. I love the margaritas. I like that it is affordable so we can eat here often. Looking forward to going this Friday night!

We thought this had to be some of the worst Mexican food we ever tasted. We tried it once and have never returned. The service was horrible and we couldn't understand why the place was packed out. Colorado Springs doess not have good Mexican restaurants. We found one, El Padrino.

Great place for families! There is a large menu, with something for every palate. The wait staff is fast, but friendly and the food is hot and flavorful. Not much ambience, but clean and welcoming.

The last thing you want to hear when you walk into a restuarant is that the wait staff is stressed. I was at Senor Manuels the week ending June 28th and heard just that from the Blond Girl behind the counter. I received that statement from her right after I asked why I was asked to wait by the door... More
