i liked the amount, quality and presentation of the food. The waiter was not real fluent in English but we communicated our needs and he followed through

Good Tex Mex. Great party space in the "back bar" that has an adjoining covered outdoor patio. Perfect for parties. Poor parking. Chicken tortilla soup was the best I have ever had.

Had one of the lunch specials - beef taco, 2 enchiladas, with beans and rice on the side ($7) Started with homemade chips and spicey salsa. Added diet cokes and the bill for the 2 of us at lunch was $21 before tip. GREAT Tex Mex, also great price. Near enough to the Ritz that they will give you a... More

We were visiting Dallas and so excited to have some really good Tex-Mex food and everyone said that Manny's Uptown was one of the best to go to. It was St. Patrick's Day so we figured we'd have a better shot of food/service avoiding the typical St. Patrick's Day mania that Dallas can have. The old retrofitted home with porch... More

I've been living on the east coast for quite some time and have really missed TexMex food. I ordered a enchilada trio plate that was really good. I'll be back!

Was looking forward to a hearty brunch since I hadn't eaten all day and our reservation was 11am. The menu is limited and strange. My kids loved it. However, they forgot the English muffins in my one daughters quasi eggs Benedict steak dish (the muffin was if the other daughter's), no butter on my toast, and no toast at all... More

I am sure Manny's has very fine Mexican food in general, but I went there because I heard the brisket tacos were the bomb. They are. Tender brisket served with charred chiles and a meat sauce that amounts to heaven in a tortilla. No kidding - these are really good. I can't seem to manage to order anything else on... More

Our group of about 20 came back to Manny's during TX/ou weekend and had another great dinner. If you are lucky enough to get a chillie relleno, ENJOY... The fajitas are always great and the margarita's are even better. Our waiter Jesus was johnny on the spot with drinks for our group and took care of all our needs.

I really enjoy visiting Manny's. It's probably my favorite Tex-Mex. The food is awesome, the service is good, the atmosphere is enjoyable, and the value is pretty good, depending on what you order. The fajitas make an awesome meal, and be sure to try their guacamole and queso.
