We've been here a few times over the years when visiting Blairsville. This visit we decided to get the buffet. Food wasn't warm at all. We tried the beef, shrimp, chicken, and a roll up of cheese (can't remember the name of it)- all cold. The only thing warm was the enchiladas. Good: chips, salsa, menu items.

Blah blah blah yuck blah I can't even write a hundred words for blah. We disliked it so much we didn't even box or finish our food. We just paid and left.

Good food and good price. Is around the downtown area. It is in a mountain town with very beautiful mountain scenery

We love Mexican food so we thought we would give it a try. The staff is very friendly and the service was good. The restaurant decor needs a little something. The bench seat was uncomfortable probably because it needs to be replaced. The food was nothing special. We were charged for extra tortillas. Again, the staff was very nice and... More

So let's be fair - Blairsville isn't a foodie "must visit", but El Manzanillo has pleasant, accommodating staff; it's clean and the food is pretty good for the price. We're not "regulars", but my wife & I have eaten there several times without complaint.

Average at best! My wife and I agreed the refried beans tasted ok but seemed to be watered down! The food was ok but not fresh tasting and not hot enough! I would give it another chance but definitely no impressed!

If you like shrimp cocktail, you won't be disappointed! Lots of shrimp, avocados, tomatoes, onions & cilantro! Yummy! What a bargain! When I want Mexican food, this is where I go. Everything on the menu is great!

This place has some of the best Mexican around Blairsville, but they started serving alcohol so I haven't been back. I don't patronize businesses that serve alcohol. However, they have a really good buffet too. There is also one in Murphy and it's just as good.

Thank Brooke15Martin
