When I arrive in town I always stop by for a cup of their wonderful tortilla soup, one of the best I have very had. Other stops always occur when in town as I can't pass up the fajaitas, chicken is my personal favorite. Their salsa and chips are good too. Skip the desserts, they are not worth the calories,...

Manuel's is a crowd pleaser for good reason. This is a very well-run Mexican restaurant that serves excellent food at good prices. I was pretty startled to have to wait for a table at 5 pm when we happened to want an early dinner. Folks do eat dinner earlier in Arizona than elsewhere, but I'd be prepared for a little... More

Went to this restaurant with some local residents who told me it was the go to place for Mexican food in Green Valley and Sahuarita. The place was packed on a Tuesday night and we had to wait for almost 30 minutes to be seated. Chips and salsa were immediately delivered to the table. The chips tasted like the commercial... More

If you ask any gringo what the best Mexican around Green Valley is, someone is bound to suggest Manuel's. It has all the usual trappings, is light and airy, has good service, nice drinks. Do yourself a favor though and order something other than the burritos, tacos, etc. They are good here, but the other more creative items are excellent.... More

We chose Manuel's based upon TripAdvisor reviews and we are glad we did. It was a Friday night. They only take reservations for six or more so we waited at the bar. There was a drink special - a Mexican dark beer served with lime that was really good and priced right. The wait was about 15 minutes. Very worthwhile.... More

Sahuarita's best Mexican restaurant, with consistently great drinks, chips and salsa, main courses, and desserts. May be a wait during popular hours, but well worth it!

Pros Pleasant, clean facility Very good food (my entree choices Burrito & Tostada) Sizeable portions Reasonable prices. Cons Tables a little too close together Road signage made it somewhat difficult to find

We have been to Manuel's three times now- surely the very best place to eat in Green Valley. Great service and friendly staff- their "crisps" were awesome- good to have with any meal. We were surprised to see that their rice was white rice- but other than that, everything was better than we had hoped! Favorite place in Green Valley

Manuel's is a nice restaurant, great for families to dine in. Can't go wrong with the Sizzling Fajitas! The rice and beans are delicious. Our son loves the quezadillas, they are so good. We always enjoy our food here. The staff is great too, especially Laura! Only thing is am not a fan of the green tamales here...just a tad... More

We had to wait for a table but it was worth it. I tried this place based on the reviews on Trip advisor. I had the chili relleno and the others in my group had shrimp enchiladas. I will go back again
