Taqueria Feliz - Manayunk
*Please visit our other restaurants Taqueria Feliz Horsham, Cantina Feliz in Fort Washington and La Calaca Feliz in Fairmount*
Short answer: It started as an absolute disaster and ended better. We had reservations and requested an outside table. We needed outside because we had a dog with us. I called the restaurant in advance to let them know. When we arrived there were tables for two available, but we had 3 adults and they would not let us add a chair. So, we had to wait for one of two tables where people had finished eating but would not leave. Nearly one hour later, we were given a table just in time for a downpour. So, we needed to move inside, but the dog couldn’t be inside the restaurant. So, my daughter took the dog home and we waited another 40 mins for a table inside. All in all, a complete disaster on the front end. After being seated, the manager comped us drinks and an appetizer. In addition, our waitress was very good. One big problem inside: it is so loud you cannot speak to a person right next to you. I give it a low grade overall, but an effort was made to try to make up for their failings.
This is our favorite fun mexican go to! Happy hour is the best! Drinks are delicious and the food is amazing. Its noisy and can get crowded but that adds to the fun!
Delicious food, great deals. We had the happy hour nachos, fish taco, cauliflower tacos and margaritas. Everything was amazing, our server was attentive, and the ambiance can’t be beat.
The food is always pretty solid here. We ordered Chili braised brisket nachos (my favorite thing on the menu), a chicken quesadilla, and carnitas tacos. The chicken quesadilla came absolutely covered in sourcream, and I wish it had been on the side, but otherwise the food was good. The service was very quick and courteous, but the place is really loud. The table next to us was full of young guys and they were shouting over the music, so it made it that much louder. We adjusted to it eventually, but it was tough to hold a conversation.
Great spot ! Very loud though on a Saturday night. Food was good, wasn't amazing but it's definitely good and i would come back again. The bar area was packed with young college kids being extra loud but it was a Saturday night what do you expect! Overall great place !
I didnt expect my cauliflower taco to have so much oil in it as a meat taco would. Brisket nachos are amazing! They are made how nachos should be LAYED with goodness..a tad too many peppers but still deliciousa
I would eat at Taqueria every meal, every day. We went for Manayunk Restaurant Week and ended up getting their happy hour deals.
Everything was really delicious. The only blip in our dining experience was a small mistake where the food runner brought out the wrong plate to my mom. Mistakes happen, but it did take 15 minutes to correct, and nothing was done to make that up to us. Other than that, though, the food, drinks, and the ambiance were all great.
The best Nachos ever!!! Excellent service and the Fish and Chicken Tacos were outstanding! Great place to hang out and just chill!
Service was good. Food was not. Had to wait even with a reservation. Would not return
Always very good food (fish tacos are excellent) and it’s a fun atmosphere. It can be a bit loud, but we come often because it’s very good food and reasonably priced. Great drinks as well! Highly recommend!
When I got there no one checked me in even though I told the host I had reservations for 8:30. I got there at 8:15. And although we had a reservation we still had to wait 15min. There is no point in making reservations if you still end up waiting. It was so loud in which made it hard to have conversation. I won't go back on a Friday night. Perhaps a week night.
The atmosphere was good. Service was ok. The elotes (Mexican corn) really appeared to be ungrilled, canned corn that had too much water left in the bowl which took away from the little seasoning it had. The plantains were good but I will not be returning.
Very fun. Drinks are awesome!
Food was great. Went there with my teenage daughter.
Best nachos and margaritas we have ever had. Fabulous
Taqueria Feliz is our regular spot - for everyday and special occasions - we love the people and the food. Everything was great and Chelsea is fantastic - as usual. We will be back very soon!
Excellent food and ambience! Will definitely be coming back :)
It was my first time eating there with my Boyfriend and we were seated in a clostrophobic area of the restaurant. We ordered our food and the people on either side of us finished their food, new customers were seated and retrieved their appetizers entrees and drinks before while we were still picking at our entree. Mind you we were there for a good 15-20 minutes before them. The waitress said she didn’t know what happened to our order and that she’s put it through again and “expedite” it. It wasn’t a good dining experience at all, we contemplated walking out but stayed to awkwardly receive our entrees and drinks much later than other patrons, the patrons giving us looks of pity like we’re neglected children. We decided to never come back.
Brisket Nachos were good nonetheless. Tacos definitely weren’t worth the wait.
Waiter constantly told us he was too busy and how he had other tables to attend to, as if we weren't one of them. I come here often, first time I had a jerk for a waitress. Overall good food and atmosphere.
Noise level was insane at Happy Hour the music was too loud to talk to the waiter it was too loud to talk to anyone at our table.
We’ve been many times before. Tonight was dinner and drinks with the kids. My mezcal margarita was very tasty. Nachos were cheesy and delicious. Entree was good but not great. Ambiance was lively and fun.
Great place for friends! Amazing food and drinks, very loud though. Wouldn’t recommend for first date but a fun night out!
The food was absolutely incredible. Best chipotle steak tacos ever. It was just a little noisy. I will be back soon.
Not bad at all enjoyed delicious food fun atmosphere!
Table was ready on time. Good staff, food and drinks!
The food and service was great with the exception that we were RUSHED out of our table before we could finish our drinks. We felt the pressure from the staff to get up and out of our seats. The food was excellent however.
Great food a service
This is the go to spot for Me I can food on Main St. The spicy margaritas are the best.
Great music and great scenery!! One of my favorite places to eat :)
My fiancé and I decided to stop at Taqueria for our Valentine’s Day dinner. We were beyond pleased with the service and food. Our server Shayna was outstanding and an absolute professional! Best place in the area for Mexican food and the margaritas were perfect.
Everything about this place was great. Good drinks and even better food. Only thing was that the tables were way too on top of each other. The table next to us was constantly staring awkwardly and extremely rudely at us the entire night. Idk if they were drunk but definitely something was off with them. Once they left we were able to finish our meal in place. We will definitely be back hoping for an even better experience.
Best Black Bean soup I've ever had. Highly recommended.
Great meal and service, only thing keeping this from 5 Star was the mixed gender bathroom floor needs to be cleaned more often, especially during busy hours
Food & service is always top notch. I've been about 10 times.
It's not the restaurants fault that the group behind us had 5 screaming children at their table.
It would be super eco-friendly if we all stopped having kids.
Amazing!! chelsea is the best. Just embarrassed i knocked over my water onto the people next to us
Really enjoyed this venue. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. Directed us to great dishes. It was a little loud and busy, but it's a Friday night so nothing out of the ordinary. Definitely recommend this venue.
Lively greetings at the door, brisk, cheerful, thoughtful service. The tortilla soup is a meal unto itself and everything you could want on a cold night. The chicken tinga tacos are flavorful and bursting with color. Will return!
We've been here several times and its our go to for low key Mexican. The food and drinks are always good (not great) and the service is always friendly. No real complaints ever.
Reliable, high-end basic Mexican. Love the carnitas, brisket and mahi-mahi tacos and love to go with enough people to share all of them. Everything else from nachos to guacamole is excellent. The service is generally quick and pleasant. Margaritas are a nice size. I like their spicy "3-pepper" variety. We'll be back again and again.
