This place is one of the finest. I love their freshly made flour tortillas. I wanted to sprinkle mine with cinnamon and sugar and I guess I wasn’t the first. . . Manuel brought a prepared shaker from the kitchen. The sweet treat topped off...More

Just great food prepared to order. So popular that you may have to spend a bit for a table, but well worth it. If you love their salsa you can take a pint home at a very reasonable price. BEST Eggs Benedict anywhere!

This place has the best breakfast in the South Padre / Port Isabel area. Huge portions, quality ingredients and the most amazing salsa ever. Highly recommended.

Got to go to Manuel’s for breakfast! We chose, at the advice of friends, to split a breakfast taco. We had a custom made taco of bacon, eggs, cheese, potatoes, beans and fresh jalapeños. This was served up in a homemade flour tortilla that is...More

We love eating here for breakfast and lunch every time we visit South Padre! Service by owner and his sons is top notch because it's a family-run restaurant and they make you feel right at home. Sign in and expect to wait a little for...More
