I hosted a client lunch for 20 people here last week and all was perfect. There was no waiting when I arrived and we were seated immediately. The food was delicious and our server was attentive and responsive. Thank You Manny's for helping me to look good!

Review is for new Mockingbird/Abrams location. Friday night. I had heard Manny's was just OK, so we never made the trip to the Uptown location. The Mockingbird location's food is just OK. My companion and I both thought the chips tasted slightly stale. The brisket tacos were salty and greasy, and the server forgot I said bean soup so I... More

This restaurant is a little gem. It feels like multiple distinct houses or rooms have been put together to make a very unique experience. There's also outdoor seating if that's what you're looking for. The servers are nice and relatively attentive. The food was great, but the salsa definitely had a kick to it. There isn't much parking in their... More

Manny's Uptown was a fun place. We went for dinner Saturday night. Our server was prompt and courteous. Drinks and food was good. Food was served steamy hot, which is how I like it. It was crazy busy but we weren't rushed at all. We had a party of 7. It's loud place so turn your hearing aides up. 🎉🎉🎉

I love my tex Mex. I miss it when I'm gone. I love that no matter when I come here...no matter the season, the time of day - they are always on their game. My favorite enchilada in the metroplex and their jalapeño skinny margs don't suck either. And the service? Always spot on.

Didn't have the exact combo I wanted on the menu, so I told them the combination I wanted and no problem brought out my exact order .Every thing was good, loved the hot sauce. Also got 1/2 order nacho's; so big it would have been lunch. Some of the best bean and cheese nachos with large chips almost like tostados.... More

Been coming to Manny's Uptown for years. This sets the standard for Tex Mex in Dallas. Excellent meal with Carne Asada, Steak Fajita and spinach enchiladas. Very sides. Salsa is great. Service a bit indifferent but you can deal with that. Thanked warmly by the owner

I love this little house-turned-restaurant. Their tex mex is exactly what tex mex ought to be - fresh, flavorful and delicious. Their margaritas are perfect! Not too sweet. Not too tart. Enough alcohol to feel it but not so much it ruins the flavor. Friendly, fast service. Feels like I've just ordered and the food is showing up! Love the... More

This is genuine TexMex with a great family history. We walked in at 9:15 on a weeknight expecting very little from a place that closes at 10 pm and still got excellent service, some amazing enchiladas and some of the best chicken mole we've ever had. The service is really attentive and the staff seem happy to be there. And... More
