Manuel’s Mexican Restaurant & Cantina

I really like Manuel’s Mexican Restaurant & Cantina, it’s one of my favorite restaurants in Phoenix, AZ. The prices are good and the food is extraordinary. They have seven restaurants in the Phoenix Metro Area and I have eaten at two of the locations. Both restaurants had excellent food and service.

Manuel’s Mexican Restaurant was established in 1964 at 32nd Street and Indian School Road by Manuel and Alice Salazar. Manuel’s has received numerous restaurant awards for their quality food and they maintain that quality by preparing the food from scratch daily.

Manuel’s Mexican Restaurant & Cantina menu is extensive and everything is good. They have a complete bar and you can get drinks with your meal if you want. They have ample seating and I have never had to wait for more than 15 minutes to get a table.

Because of the Coronavirus Pandemic facemasks are required to dine in but they also offer takeout, curbside pickup, and a catering service. Manuel’s also has a fundraising service they offer to school sports teams, PTSA’s, students of the month activities, student councils, and drama clubs.
