When I lived in Uptown, I loved going to Manny's. It's a very casual Tex Mex restaurant with so many different meals to choose from. Great for groups and great for a few people equally. The food was delicious and consistent each time. The portions a good sized, just enough to get you full (if you aren't already full from the chips and salsa!)

I always love Manny's. Every time I've been there (numerous visits over the past few years) I've had good service and good food. The value is great.

I've eaten weekday lunch here over twenty times, and this is the most consistently great Tex Mex in the area. Due to that, they are packed at lunch so arrive early unless you don't mind waiting. The lunch specials are very reasonable, and cover a range of choices I've never seen elsewhere. The patio is quite large with huge shade trees (sometimes seating is available here before inside seating when it's crowded- ask the hostess). Being an old house with low ceilings, it can get loud inside, but has lots of funky atmosphere. This is gourmet Tex Mex for sure!

The uptown queso is the greatest invention ever. I could eat this everyday! The happy hour specials are great and the margs are very tasty. I recommend!

Hands-down, my favorite Tex-Mex spot in the area. Prices are pretty reasonable, especially on the lunch menu. On my last visit, I opted for a taco salad - the lowest priced version - and was amazed at the pile of fresh greens and tex-mex salad goodies that were presented. The queso at Manny's is so good, you'll want a bowl to yourself (if you're a queso-hog like me, anyway). Service is attentive and I love the ambiance - being in an old, rambling farmhouse adds to its charm. Highly recommended!

You must try the Brisket Tacos or Brisket Nacho's or anything with their Brisket for that matter. Absolutely wonderful. The best Margarita's around. Definately a must on you list.

Cons: Gets very busy at luch so get there early.

I too was disappointed that the Frisco location closed. I live in the area so it was very convenient on the weekends to get my Brisket Taco fix. Oh well there is still Addison & Uptown (worth the drive).
I feel sorry for the person who said they would never go to another Manny's because of the way the Frisco location was closed. Sometimes things happen! You truly dont know what your missing. By far the best "Authentic Mexican Food" in the Metroplex Hands Down.

Pros: Authentic Mexican Food, Reasonable Prices, Friendly waitstaff

Cons: A bit of a drive for those of us further North

I am so upset. You had a restaurant in Frisco. Quite a few of us from our office showed up for lunch and no one was there. No one even bothered to put a sign of anykind. We are really disappointed as the food was wonderful and the staff was amazingly nice. The owners should be embarrased. I don't think I'll visit your restaurant in any of your other locations as the behavior of management is completely unacceptable. Unbelievable!!!!!!

It is a nice relaxing place, and convenient given I live across the street. Usually pretty full at meal times, and is in a quaint little house. Never had a bad experience, and staff is friendly. A little hard to find, but right off of Lemon.

As people have noted, this place has a similar menu to MiCocina but to me the food tastes fresher or more natural. The prices are better too, and margharitas are just as good for a few dollars less! Service is much better and friendlier too.

Pros: Food, Margharitas, Service

This is our favorite casual Mexican food spot. Owned by the brother of Mia and uncle of Mico, very similar recipes to Mia's and mi cocina. More causal than uptown micocina's but better than mia's for a night out because of the location and more updated restaurant.
Brisket Tacos are the best thing on the menu, but the fajita salad is great with their home made dressing.
Margaritas are strong!

We loved Manny's and we have lunch there at least once a week. We have frequented several of the Mexican restaurants in the Dallas area and I must admit, we only dine at Manny's now. Their food is great, their service is great and their prices are very reasonable! We have tried several items on the menu and have been bragging since our first visit.

Had heard about this place. We ate here when it was Guethries, and loved it. Sorry Guethries has closed. Well this place I wasn't impressed at all. If there was a choice of Manny's or El Fenix, I'd go to El Fenix next time. They're trying to be fancy. Things as simple as nachos, maybe 20 large chips on a plate with big globs of cheese, and what we thought we had order was fajitas, what we got was hunks for thinly sliced chicken, was not even close to fajitas. Oh yeah, they dont have refills on soft drinks, they bring you a canned coke. Will not be going back.
