This place definitely deserves more than 5 stars, but unfortunately it doesn’t let me do that! Walking into this restaurant as tourists, we could definitely tell it was a locals favorite. We were greeted by a very friendly man who asked us if this was our first time there. When we told him it was, he immediately took the time to recommend their famous flour tortillas and answered any questions we had about the menu. The service was fast and very friendly. The chips and salsa were delicious, but the homemade flour tortillas (which were very huge and filled with whatever you wanted) were beyond amazing. A person couldn’t ask for better service, friendliness, or food. And the food was reasonably priced! My friends and I were amazed. If I ever end up back in this area, I will be back!

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!

Open for breakfast and lunch, closes at 2 p.m. For authentic local breakfast and lunch cuisine, including the largest and best tortillas in the lower Laguna Madre, you've gotta go to Manuel's. And the hot sauce is spectacula, all served in a friendly, family environment! A must visit!

We discovered Manuel's by accident. They are a fun-loving restaurant, with excellent economical Mexican food. Our food and service were excellent. It is a small restaurant, so you sign yourself in when you arrive. We waited 5 minutes for a table on a busy Saturday morning.

We always order the seafood con todo with gravy and split it. More than enough for two big eaters. Good salsa, chips and friendly service. Prices a little higher this year, but worth it!
