First of all I cannot believe this place was not even listed on Tripadvisor. I had to have it added. This place is a long time staple of the area. And if you are ever in this area or even close, make sure to go because you wont be disappointed.This place is the bomb. It is a tiny place and I do mean tiny and on any given day there is a line up the street. (it's worth the wait) The hollenbeck burrito is my go to choice here and I would recommend it to anyone. The meat is so tender and flavorful. One bite and you will be a fan too.Some of the best chile verde I have ever had. Come hungry as they are large. There is an order window on the side of the building if you don't feel like waiting in line. Also a few tables out there as well, though they do fill up quickly. Parking is a bit hard to find usually. Again, its worth the trouble. Very good food and customer service. This place knows what they are doing. I have nothing to criticize about this place at all except I wish there were more of them around. Hats off to you Manual. keep up the good work and more importantly..........the great food.

Best Mexican in the city. Friendly atmosphere. There is always a line to get in. That tells you people are willing to wait for what's inside.

We ordered the Hollenbeck Burrito, it was ok, nothing special. Their tortilla chips are awesome and the service is friendly.

The Hollenbeck burrito was impressive and tasty. This burrito was more than 1 person could finish. A neighboring table ordered the Manuel's Special and talk about a huge burrito, this burro could feed a family. What an experience. I highly recommend a stop when you are in East LA.
