“Tiny place you would drive past if you are not from here.”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Very small place with prices to match. There are 12 booths. I eat here at least once a week. So much so that the waitresses ask - - your usual? First let me say that a big draw for me is the way they serve their salsa. It is in spouted containers and each person has their own small bowl to fill and mix as they like. The food is prepared in a small kitchen to match the smallness of the whole place. Lunch time sees the line out the door. As with most Mexican restaurants, the dishes are all made of the same basic ingredients. My typical lunch with drink is $6.00. I really like the chicken rice soup but it is seasonal during the cold months. This place is noted for its Halloween and Christmas decorations. They really shine here. They actually close for a sort time to decorate. This place is as good as some of the haunted houses that I have been to. Christmas finds a Polar Express train circling high on the walls. Expect a longer wait during those two seasons. If you are a senior and pay cash, there is a nice discount for you. Great jobs guys!!!

“Good food”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

You will get a good meal at Manuel's. Not the cleanest of restaurants. Food is cooked to order. We have never had a bad meal here.

“Love this place!!”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

We love this place! The food is very good and they have large portions, good prices. Bonus: they deliver on the weekends after 5pm!! Can't beat that!! In October, the entire restaurant is decorated for Halloween. It is fantastic!! Well worth a visit just to eat in that ambience!! They also decorate for Christmas!
