“If you love Mole ...”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

... Manuel's is about the very, very best!!! Every dish at our table was good - yes, we all shared. In fact, my love for mole was seriously challenged by their cream sauce. Try it, you'll like it!

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

Yes, the food is excellent, but I think it's a little pricy. If you lunch with wine and a flan you easily reach the US$30.00... plus taxes and the tip (they suggest a 20% tip).

“Nothing for vegetarians”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

My non vegetarian friends like this place but it does not even have beans for vegetarians. Once I had to sit there just with drinks and ice cream as it was an official meeting.

“Great Outdoor Dining”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

There is indoor dining but our favorite is the outdoor, enclosed patio dining. Variety of great margaritas, great guacamole, suisa on enchiladas, bkack bean side, seafood dishes, etc. to satisfy a range of diner tastes.

“Love the Chicken Mole Enchiladas!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Every time I am in Austin, which about 4 times a year, I always eat at Manuel's. I never look at the menu because I always order the Chicken Mole Enchiladas. I love the Mole. The black beans and rice are also delicious along with chips and salsa. Guacamole is also a great starter.
