“Not as good as last year”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

Not sure what has happened but this place has gone down since our visit last year. The chips did not taste fresh and the guacamole was puréed to much and nothing special. I think they forgot to add spice and lime . Very disappointing. The only saving grace was the chili releno, which was very good. Too bad the rice was clumpy and rhe beans were soupy On a positive note our dinner was inexpensive.

“Best local, family owned and run Mexican restaurant south of Tucson!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

We love this place! Have been coming to Manuel's regularly since they had their other smaller place years ago. Why! Everything! Authentic delicious mexican food! Large menu. daily specials too. also great breakfasts. Pleasant and comfortable interior. Always friendly and welcoming staff without exception. Great value. Totally dependable quality and service. Everything on the menu is the best, homemade, like eating at a great cook's own table. Weve never been disappointed. They deserve their success!

“Nogales Sonora has better”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

The noise level is beyond reproach. The food quality that was it's appeal has certainly deteriorated. Be careful of the roaches which they don't seem to control well.
