“Recommended by locals”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014

Del Rio has very little to choose from in the way of good restaurants. We asked several people for recommendations of restaurants that served "healthy" food (vegetables in addition or in lieu of meat) and were met with negative shakes of heads everywhere. This place serves Mexican food and steaks. Quantity of food per serving was huge; quality was okay. 3.5 stars.

“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014 via mobile

I gave this restaurant 3 stars based solely on the atmosphere. The food is obviously reheated because the rice is nearly burnt every single time I go here. Honestly, nothing on the menu is spectacular. The cucumber margaritas are great, however, I, too, have heard that the missed drinks have little to no alcohol.

“Good Mexican place to dine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

Manuel's is a good Mexican place to dine with a varied menu and good drinks. We had the Mexican Martinis with chili powder on the glass rim and an appetizer of delicious guacamole and fried ribeye steak--excellent. For dessert we had their tasty made in house flan. The service was outstanding.

“Avergage TexMex”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014

Very popular restaurant, even on a Wednesday evening. Average food, medium priced. OK if you don't want anything special.

“Close, but no cigar”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

We live in del rio and come to Manuel's quite often (mainly because it's the only nice atmosphere in del rio). I'm finally writing a review because I've had it with the mixed drinks and bar service at this restaurant. The food is typically good, depending of course on what you get, but the bar is absolutely sub par in my book. If you go here only order wine or beer because they legitimately do not put alcohol in their mixed drinks. I've ordered 5+ liquor drinks on multiple occasions and each time it tastes like absolutely nothing is in it. I've heard rumor that they cheat people out of it and I honestly believe it now.
