After reading previous reviews and hearing about the long line of diners waiting to eat here...my expectations were quite high. We were camping at Seacliff State Beach - within walking distance to Manuel's. I was excited to give it a try!
I found the food to be uninspired and the menu was filled with average/common Mexican food choices. There was nothing offered that was different from most Mexican-American restaurants throughout the west. The food was (chicken burrito/chicken chimichunga) fine, rice and beans fine and the margarita fine. Nothing exceptional, nothing exceptional offered and not even an exceptional view (seeing that we were on the coast). I do not understand why anyone would wait to eat here.
The service was good and the food was hot. If this is all you need in your choice of Mexican dining...then this is the place for you.
