Was expecting much better Mexican food in a state that borders on Mexico! Everything except the pork and salsa were very mediocre (these items were actually quite good). The place appeared under-staffed yet we did not wait an unacceptable amount of time to receive our dinner. Nothing terrible but nothing to write home about either.

It is hard to find an authentic Mexican restaurant. But this one is. They start out by bringing you chips and salsa. The chips are warm and crispy. Their tortilla soup is excellent. It is a meal in itself. Anything you order is very good. They have remodeled the building inside and out and it is very nice. They also... More

Looked like a lot of patrons meet there after work. There were so many choices on the menu. Overall, the food was about average for a Mexican restaurant. We were surprised at high total on the final bill, I guess because we had combination plates and our 2nd round of drinks was after happy hour, The waiter talked fast and... More

Was in Scottsdale for a meeting and was looking for a place for lunch. Google sent us to Manuel's. We eat regularly at the one in Glendale so we thought this would be a safe stop. We were not disappointed. We were seated right away and the place was clean and the atmosphere inviting. The wait staff was friendly and... More

"Manuel’s has reinvented itself into an all-in-one place to go for good Mexican food, a light-hearted fun atmosphere and staff, and great music. All ages will enjoy the ambiance, and seniors, especially , love the 3-4 piece extremely-talented band for listening or dancing. I recently ordered a dozen of their house-made green corn tamales after the waitress gave me a... More

Growing up in Arizona, we're particular about our Mexican food and Manuel's does it right. Great cheese crisp.

My husband and I eat at Manual's as often as we can but at various location depending on where we're coming from. The Scottsdale restaurant recently underwent a remodel. We stopped in for lunch today and sat in the bar. The food was terrific and the service exceptional. Manual's is some of the best Mexican food in the Phoenix area.

This place had really good menu options to choose from. However, I just got regular beef tacos. They had a generous helping of cheese, but were not to special. My wife got the three amigos enchilada and she loved it. Lots of unique Mexican dishes here. The reason for the low rating was do to the atmosphere. It was extremely... More

Well it is just ok mexican food and that is it. It is fairly tasteless and bland. I had a combination plate so I got a taste of about everything. I have had better and I have had worse. I am not going back.
