After a disappointing Manuel's meal at another location, we stopped at the Bell Rd location twice in a week and found the meal to be amazing, as usual! The second visit included 9 of us who ordered a wide variety of menu items and we all LOVED our meals. Great service too, from the host station (who took our reservation... More

We had a fantastic meal here. We were driving to Sedona and found this place before we left the Phoenix area. Staff was friendly and margaritas were big and tasty. Great food, great price.

Excellent salsa & warm chips to start! We thoroughly enjoyed the chimichunga carnitas and blue corn tamale lunch special size dishes.

First time there prices reasonable, food great! Would go again. Authentic, not hot, nicely spiced. Except for the 'hot' salsa which was too spicy for me but the people I was with seemed to like it.

Very disappointed in the meal we had at this restaurant. We went with three other people and they seemed very satisfied with their meals so maybe I just made a bad choice. Sending something back when you're sharing a meal with other people doesn't seem like the best idea but I should have said something to the waitress. Perhaps they... More

In town visiting relatives on a Friday night they took us out to Manuel's. What a great choice! With so many Mexican places to choose from this one really stands out. Our server Vivienne had only been on the job for two weeks, but she was very professional and a delight. The Margaretha's were well blended with quality ingredients. The... More

This is a huge restaurant with a patio, cantina, and dining room. The dining room is the quieter area for seating. The chips and salsa are good. It is nice for seniors to be able to order from the lunch menu. I had the chicken chimichanga and my husband had the pollo fundido. The pollo fundido was delicious, but the... More

The food tasted great. The atmosphere was inviting and the service very friendly. I would recommend this place. The only reason I gave it a 4/5 is I felt the price a little high. We had a $50 bill for 3 of us, and all we drank was pop. I was going to go "a la carte" because I never... More

Had nice Friday evening dining with friends. Very friendly staff and service, food was good, drink was excellent, prices reasonable. Chips and salsa excellent. Nice facility and early evening atmosphere... unfortunately, they use flatware for utensils that give a low level characteristic to the experience..

Thank J D
