Reviewed August 20, 2013

We went today for lunch because we found out about the cinnamon rolls, hamburger was great, wanted a turkey burger but the turkey was Frozen! Funny!
Cinnamon rolls were awesome!

“Manske Rolls!!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

If you've never had one, you haven't lived! These rolls have been around since my college days 30 years ago! Definitely not for the dieter, but splurge or share one. Drenched in butter, yum yum!

“Good food, better rolls!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Lettuce in a grilled cheese sandwich! Really?! Yuck. The burger was good but the onion rings were hard and stuck together. Something easy to fix but we didn't want to re-order. Filling up on the scrumptious rolls made us very satisfied customers!

“You must try this landmark”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

We heard of this place from watching Texas Country Reporter. Our first vist was September2011 and we loved it. The atmosphere is early Texas..very clean.. burgers cooked to order and we tried a half and half basket of fries and onoin rings. Onion rings had a Shiner bock beer batter very yummy! Staffwas vety friendly. Parking in tight and limited to street only. The one thing that is a musttry is there famous Manskey Rolls you won't be disappointed! Thee rolls are cinamin and buttery good. I promise you'll be taking a half dozen back home with your!!!

“the best cinnamon rolls-ever!”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

We stopped in to visit this place after going here lots while in college. It hasn't changed too much. We ordered the Manske Roll-They are sooo great. They still make them like they used to when I was a college student SWTSU in the early 80s!
We even took several to go, and brought them home. Reheated them, and served for breakfast-very tasty. Heated up just perfect!
Many people were having burgers, but we just had the Manske Rolls!
