“MY favorite Mexican restaurant”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

And here's why...
Their margaritas are the best.
The chicken casadia on the appitizer menu comes with all the trimmings.
The chicken enchilada with green chilie is fantastic and a third of the price than another "fancy" restaurant's " down the road" in Tubac.
It's family owned and a great, casual place for family and/or friends.

“Good family restaurant”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

The food was good, but lacked the subtlety of taste you might find at finer places. However, it is priced appropriately, and we really enjoyed the food. Expect a casual experience, with lots of families. You can do far worse...

“Casual Place With Very Good Food”
Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

Manuel's is a typically casual Mexican restaurant but the food is full of flavor. The menu offers lots of options for everyone. Can't say more than that - casual, a bit crowded, but really decent food.
If you're a fan of Mexican food you will not be disappointed in Manuel's.
Buen provecho!

“Worth a wait”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

The food was pretty good across the board, although my shrimp fajitas were a little salty. Margaritas were really tasty, with more kick than you might expect from a restaurant. We went at prime time on a Friday night and had to wait maybe 45 minutes. But sitting on a bench outside with a margarita, it was a pleasant wait.

“Best Mexican Restaurant in Tucson area”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

Recently moved to Tucson. This is the best Mexican food I have had since I have moved here. Originally from Chicago and travelled to Mexico over 20 times and was disappointed with the Mexican food here until finding Manuel's. Well worth the drive from Tucson. The restaurant was packed at 6pm on a Thursday. Good food, good service and good prices!
