Always good food
I've only been here a few times, but the food has always been fantastic. Great flavors, and not too greasy-feeling like a lot of Mexican food.

Mom's Night Out at Manuel's
Had a wonderful time last night on a Mom's Night Out at Manuel's. They treated us beautifully, took care of us, and made sure we had a great time. The food was great and the restaurant fun. I'll be back for sure!

Great food. Love the outdoor
Great food. Love the outdoor dining in the brief window of time that outdoor dining is feasible in Austin :-) The servers were a bit inattentive, but that maybe because we were a party of 8.

The food was fresh and the presentation of the food was appealing. I had skewered shrimp with vegetables which was colorful and spicy. Two others at our table had the pork stuffed zuchinni which was artfully presented on the plate. The two in our group who had stiffed zuchinni said it was tasty, but did not have enough pork.

Excellent dinner outing!
I met some girlfriends for dinner. The food was outstanding! I had the spinach salad with chicken (minus the onions), it was so flavorful - and not spicy hot. Several Mexican restaurants think hot spicy is better.
Excellent! all around - I'll be back soon with my hubby.

We are a group of 12 people, at least 8 dine together each Saturday night. Manuel's is a favorite because of the food and the service. On this occasion, the manager was most helpful when a member of our group that was surprised at the 'spicy' entree she chose.
He handled her issues with dignity and graciousness.

This was my first trip to the restaurant after a friend recommended it. I had the Tacos de Pescado. Usually, I expect to find a couple small nuggets of fish with lots of lettuce rolled in a tortilla, but these tacos were full of well flavored white fish. It actually filled me up!
I didn't care for the chips and salsa really, but the queso was real cheese, which you don't see at most Mexican restaurants.
Overall, a good experience!

We went here for a co-worker's birthday. The service was excellent, the food was good and they give you a lot of it. I got the 10 dollar fajita tacos which were very large. This is a great place to go for groups such as pre-prom dinners and lunch outings, but it is not very romantic. I would not take a date here simply because it is loud and not good for one on one conversation. This is expected because it is a popular, trendy restaurant with lots of customers. I would recommend this restaurant to friends for its great service and food. Also, it is very easy to book a reservation online.

Dependable but a bit expensive
We were surprised to find they had remodeled since the last time we were there, which has been quite awhile, and the prices seemed to have increased as well. One of our favorites, Enchiladas Jaiba Suizas, (Crab Enchiladas) is now $28, which may or may not be worth it. Margaritas are still good, the service is great as usual and it's so convenient to Regal Cinema, where they show some great arthouse movies. Acoustics might be a bit distracting if you're looking for a quiet place for dinner or lunch.
