Service was great and so was the Happy Hour half priced margarita. I should have stopped at the chips and salsa, which were good. The Tacos El Pastor lacked flavor and the side of beans had a funky taste. I’m not sure I’d return since...there are a lot of other food choices in the area that are much better.More

What a pleasant surprise! We stopped here for lunch and can't wait to come back and try more of the menu. I had the Fiesta Salad, and my wife had the wrap with salmon. Both were outstanding. The included chips and salsa were excellent, too....Service was very good also.More

The husband and I decided to go to Mannys because we have never been here before and wanted to give it a try. Our server was very nice and answered all our questions about the menu. They were somewhat slow when getting what we ordered...but I do understand with the worker shortage they were short staffed. Unfortunately, the food was over-priced for the portions we got and it was very mediocre in taste. Probably will not eat here again.More

Service and setting were great. Menu and food quality was very good. The margaritas were good. We would have given 5 stars except chips with salsa were a bit stale.

I’m from Los Angeles, and grew up with high quality Mexican restaurants locally. So since moving to the Midwest good, authentic Mexican has been hard to find. We came with our 2 year old for dinner on a Friday a little before 6pm and were...impressed with the detailed decor and ambiance upon walking in, which is exactly what we wanted. We were not looking for a Chipotle or Burrachos style dinner. We were seated inside, in an alcove, near the kitchen (but not right on top of the kitchen) by a very friendly server (Kiara) who was so accommodating and gracious! What a perfect spot. Our toddler was mesmerized by the wall scones, the paintings, the pottery, the fish, the parrots, and especially the busy kitchen! The gluten free menu held a number of options (not just salads), and our Apacalupo nacho appetizer (pictured) was able to be modified for a gluten free meal as well. I was so thankful Kiara did not seem unsure or uninformed about gluten free eating. She was confident, attentive, very genuinely helpful, and unfazed by my requests. We ordered the gluten free Mahi Mahi fish tacos, gluten free Enchilada Ranchera with barbacoa beef, red wine, and flan for dessert. The desserts are not gf, so I didn’t have any, but my husband and toddler were quite pleased with it. The flavors were wonderful, the food arrived quickly, and the salsa that came with our chips was some of the best I’ve ever had. Our dinner entrees were between $12-16, which we found reasonable, especially considering the generous portions, gluten free status, and ambiance. Our toddler even danced to the music, and kept commenting “Good food! Good food!”. We did not feel rushed or ostracized for bringing a small child. He was quite happy with the booster seat and smaller water glass and plates they had for him. We left very satisfied and thankful for such a fun place to eat out. There were not many fellow diners when we arrived, but the restaurant was filling up by the time we left after 7. We will definitely be back!More

My husband and I ordered from Manny's tonight to support this local restaurant and we wish we hadn't. Our nearly $70 was a waste of money. The salmon and the seafood burrito both tasted fishy. The delivery was supposed to be "free" but there was...a $7-plus fee added to the bill besides the tax and tip. Yes, it was delivery to our door but we live a block away. We would have picked up our order, if it had been offered, when we tried their "online ordering." Never again. Sorry, Manny's.More

Manny's does a great job at social distancing and keeping everyone safe but they do it in a way that does not detract from the experience. This has always been a favorite for my husband and myself. The food is exceptional and the service is...always top notch. This is a fabulous place to celebrate special occasions but it's also a must if you just want a more casual, relaxed meal. Good wine menu and you can't beat the margaritas! We sometimes go and sit in the beautiful bar and watch the game.More

Stopped in with a few co workers. It was very inviting and staff very attentive and friendly. Although I would say it is more of an intimate setting great for a dinner date. The Sword Fish is great and the chicken fajitas are great as...well. I love this placeMore

Was looking for something "ethnic", Mexican sounded good. Outside looked very inviting with a positive vibe. Inside just as nice, larger than I thought and well defined areas. Good size menu, excellent range of choices. I opted for the crab meat enchiladas --- great choice....Three enchiladas plus rice and bean (beans were exceptional, not all mashed up with great seasonings.)More
