We came here for the first time for my bday, and it was fantastic. Great food, service, and atmosphere.
Great service. Antonio, our waiter, was very polite and attentive. Regretfully the patio was very cold. We remembered a restaurant in Ushuaia that provided us with warm blankets to help us to overcome the cold.
I really like Manuel's food and their service is always great.
Always a favorite since opening on 310 Congress in 1985. THE BEST in town interior mexican restaurant with a healthy cooking style. The 310 margy's are fantastic, better have a second one!
Tres chili's soup is a one-of-a-kind you won't be disappointed with on a cold day...
The patio ambiance makes it the place to be. Service is always 5-stars!
Excellent service and food. Loved the enchiladas bandera one pork one cheese. The minosas also great. Highly recommended.
We have eaten at Manuel's about 6 times during the coronavirus. All of the meals have been consistently fresh and good as well as the service being attentive, friendly, and timely. This time was the same.
The outdoor patio is lovely, but we sit inside as we like the roomier tables and upholstered bench seating. Safety precautions are in place and waiters are wearing their masks the whole time. We appreciate all the efforts the staff and owners are making to keep us well while we enjoy the lunch or dinner out.
Group of 6 outside, food and servce were great
Thier ouside patio area is great for eating out durein gthe pandemic
You will enjoy yourself! Give Manuel's a try! Thanks
This is a lovely place to meet up and enjoy good food and service.
I have eaten in several different restaurants during the pandemic. Manuel's food is exactly the same as it was before the pandemic and only a few of the other places we have tried have managed this well during these difficult and unforseen circumstances. As Manuel's has been my go-to restaurant for Mexican food for a couple of decades, this has been a real gift.
All the produce, ,cheeses, meats, drinks, tortillas, chips, salsas, and fish/seafood are very fresh and generous. The desserts are still rich and fresh. The staff is friendly and accommodating as always, as well as taking safety precautions and wearing masks. The inside features well-spaced tables and is very clean. The outside is the same and has the breezy, shaded patio seating behind stuccoed walls which create a relaxed and green environment.
I am appreciative of how Manuel's is delivering the exact same experience we enjoyed in 2019 and all the years which came before.
Service was excellent! Food was awesome!
Lovely al fresco dining. Too bad the food didn't measure up. The guacamole tasted like the oil was old and had a slightly fishy taste. We were at a 4-top, and one of my 2 employees went home sick in mid-afternoon after eating the scallop taquitos. She's fine today, thank our Lord. My wife ordered chicken fajitas and they were fine, albeit the chicken was a bit overcooked.
We won't be back except maybe for a drink. Not for the food.
Outdoor seating on a beautiful day = ambience/noise = 5 stars
Great food and service
We didn’t have a great experience for dinner on a Thursday evening. Our server was all over the restaurant and did not have time for us. The queso was cold and hard. We couldn’t even get it out of the bowl with the Spoon. My mole chicken enchiladas were alright. My daughter liked the pork tenderloin. My husband had beef enchiladas with verde sauce. He ate one. We all agreed it was really disappointing.
Great staff and the food was lovely. A great night!
Good, as usual!
Was surprised that all dining was outdoors. We had eaten inside a few weeks ago.
We had a reservation for 2 on the patio. It took the front host staff a bit of time to attend to us as they had to take both our temperatures, then make sure a table was ready and then get us seated. It was worth the wait though! The food was delicious and the patio is a wonderful outdoor dining area.
I have loved Manuel's Downtown and Manuel's Great Hills for many years, so it was wonderful to be able to return to the Great Hills location for lunch on the patio during this pandemic. Service was very friendly and helpful. The mango margarita, salad with chicken breast, and the flan were delicious, as always. We will definitely be back for food and spiritual uplift.
Great outdoor space and excellent COVID protocols in place. Feel safe going here for lunch.
PLUS staff and food are exceptional.
Pleasant meal outdoors. Service was sporadic. Food was good but not outstanding.
I clicked on everyday dining but I thinks it’s great for any occasion!
Worst service ever experienced in this restaurant. Took 15 minutes to get acknowledged by anyone in the establishment. Once we got noticed, we placed an order for an appetizer and our main course. We did not receive anything, including drinks until much later when everything...drinks, appetizers and entrees were delivered at the same time. Our waitress checked back one time and then we never saw her again. My tea glass never got refilled and after we finished our meal, we had to hunt down our waitress to get our bill as we were ready to leave. Just overall a miserable time. We have tried hard to support this place during a difficult time as it has always been one of our favorite restaurants. Maybe now is the time to take it behind the barn and put it out of its misery. I doubt we will return.
The food was delicious. The service was great. They did a great job with social distance procedures!
Great food, great setting, and convenient north location
Great service and food in a large patio with a lot of room among tables. Excellent for pandemia time.
Live their mole, fish, and appetizers. If there is no happy hour take it off the menu or put a sticker over it...
Gotta get the mole, best in town. They also have nice patio.
Food choices were not what you would expect...but in a good way. The chili rellenos, fajitas and mole were all outstanding. The chips and salsa were some of the freshest and tastiest I have had in recent memory. Great ambiance and a lovely patio. Worth a visit!
The food was excellent, as was the service. They took precautions to socially distance patrons and check temps prior to entering the main eating area.
This patio is COVID compliant and still beautiful!
Excellent service, and the food is always good.
I went for my birthday. Great food, service and atmosphere. I would recommend it to anyone.
Fajitas so tender! Also they were checking temperatures at the door if you allowed them. I really liked that. All staff were wearing their masks.
We had an overall issue with another party who didn’t practice social distancing while near us. I wish the restaurant stepped up more about that. The queso was yucky. It was thick thick cheese. But maybe that’s how it was supposed to be. That’s not what we wanted. I enjoyed my meal but my husband did not enjoy his.
Manuel's patio is the perfect place to eat during the pandemic. Outside with great food and service and one of the most beautiful live oak trees in the city.
With COVID-19, I thought Manuel’s had a great set up - the check in was reasonable, the tables were appropriately spaced and the employees all appeared to have protective gear. This was our second night out during this odd time, and I felt like Manuel’s had a great set up that made us feel comfortable and safe.
Dont make me write something thats just annoying really.
Have lived in Austin for 15 years and had never been to Manuel’s. We decided to go to celebrate our anniversary.
We each had a house margarita (I had a prickly pear one on the rocks and it’s was great!).
We were pleased to see they had “fajitas for two” which was perfect as we weren’t hungry enough for a big meal for each of us. We were able to mix the beef and chicken, and it came with a really good pico de gallo and guac. Plenty of food for us to share. Service was good, server was friendly and just attentive enough.
It’s my favorite place. Sitting out on the patio. And Ivan always takes great care of us, just as the other ones do too. Love the chicken enchiladas with Suiza sauce and the pomegranate cosmo.
