“THIS CHICKEN IS BETTER THAN FRIED CHICKEN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

If you are ever in Stockton, CA then you have to go to Manny's Drive In on S. El Dorado Street. Now it's not in the best of neighborhoods but it's totally worth it. I especially love their broasted chicken...it's not like you think...their broasted chicken has the look of fried chicken and it is so delicious!!!! I asked the owner (Kelly) what makes their chicken so good and although she didn't divulge all the secrets she did tell me that they marinate their chicken in a brine and they have this broaster oven that frys the chicken to golden perfection. Manny's also has good burgers, sandwiches, fries & ice cream but I always get their chicken. Try it. You'll love it. Way better than KFC, Church's & Popeye's. You might want to call first because they're are not open late nor are they open on Sundays. I PROMISE YOU'RE GONNA LUV IT!!!!!!!
