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!)
One of my favorites – 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.
Uptown Tex-Mex joint boasts brisket tacos and a spicy scene. – This old-house-turned-restaurant sits just a jaunt off Central Expressway. Attractive Uptowners in hip novelty t-shirts and attitude sunglasses trickle in to one of two bar areas to wait for their table. Swirl margaritas are savored amongst groups of friends and occasionally persuade a bad pick-up line. Brisket tacos, super hot pica-pica sauce and puffy sopaipillas flow out of the kitchen to the loud and energetic crowds sat in gold booths or tables under hung Mexican style plates and Frida images. Most have more margaritas for dessert or look for eye candy.
BEST MEXICAN FOOD AND DON'T PASS UP THE MARGARITA'S – 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.
Manny's Customer 4 Life – 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.
Poor Management – 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!!!!!!
Like MiCocina only better – 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.
Great Mexican food!!!!! – 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!
Brisket Enchiladas – are the best! Definitely must try! Don't miss the great patio out back. Nice and shady to kick back with a margarita and escape the hot Dallas summer!
Absolutely Wondeful!! – 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.
