Enchiladas verdes filled with spinach and some onions were delicious at lunch. Comes with chips/salsa, rice and black beans for $12.
Excellent and we sat outside on the patio, nice breeze, beautiful oak trees.

Fantastic traditional dishes with great service. My favorite items are the steak fajitas and the chicken flautas.

It was a happy coincidence that I dined here on National Tequila Day. Enjoyed a skinny cucumber margarita to top of the day.

They are well recognized for their mole which is delicious. I had it in an appetizer with white cheese and chicken served with tortillas. Very tasty.

The service is never great here, but the food so good that I just let it slide.

Good happy hour with half price apps (some of which can be small meal size) and $2 off drinks.

Manuel's is one of my two favorite Mexican restaurants in Austin. I've been to this location at least a dozen times and I can remember only once when things were a bit off. The flavors of the food are wonderful, and presentation on the plates is nice, too. The kids love the lime-aid, and the adults have no complaints with the margaritas. The mushroom appetizer is a favorite. The patio has plenty of shade and can be a nice place to enjoy your meal.

Manuel's is definitely a nice place to go. Interior is attractive and service is impeccable. It has a great reputation for superior interior Mexican food. While I don't quibble with the quality of the ingredients, I just don't see the lure. Food was good. Not spectacular, but good. Not so good that I would make an effort to come back, although the Bloody Mary was superb. Grinch that I am, I found the live music distracting for Sunday brunch, so if I do go back, it won't be then.
