“Best burgers in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

Mannys Drive-in, NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH Mannys California Fresh on Pacific ave (these are two completely different restaurants) said so by the owner. Menus are similar but this Mannys is located in southside stockton almost by McKinley park/school. I've been to this place my whole life, walked from my house which is a block away. They've always had the same great food and owners, this is not a chain restaurant. Menu consist of burgers, fries, onion rings, (thee best authentic) shakes and ice cream. You can see your food being made through the glass. The restaurant itself is in bad shape, been intact and the same for years. Place closes early, 6pm i think, im guessing because of location and their security. Location is sketchy but ive been here my whole life, im a fairly petite female and its definitely worth coming here.

“Good Fast Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Love the Manny Burger. Roasted chicken is good, too. This is not a chain and you'll find some unique dishes. They even have whole artichokes.

“What you think of when you hear drive-in”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Crazy good food that of course will kill you. Broasted chicken; chili, burgers of every sort, excellent fries, onion rings and even a nice chicken sandwich. High calories and great flavors. It is excellent at what it does. Try the shake!
Just, not every day or it will get you.

“Great food - Stockton Tradition”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

We love MAnny's on the Miracle Mile! My husband and I met at Manny's on a sunny day in the outside dining section. He loves their rotisserie chicken and I love the salad and Carmel Sandwich. Very consistent high quality and great prices.
