Looked at their menu and liked the looks of a few things that drew me to this restaurant. When we got there, we were told that those were seasonal items and not available. Chips came with 2 salsas, one smooth and one chunky which were...More

Service was amazing. Our waitress was really efficient. Portions were huge but you can find better Mexican food in Arizona. Their rice is not the best for example. Very cheap restaurant though so you can’t complain much!

I was a walk-in customer on a weekday. Salsa offered with chips were good, especially the hotter of the two. I ordered on of the specials, which was prepared and served quickly. Simple filling meal for under $10.00.

We visited Casa Manana after a spa day in Safford. Staff is wonderful and we ate lots of chips, homemade salsa along with huge portions. Great family and friends restaurant.

We love this restaurant. There are several restaurants in town that are authentic Mexican food that we love. This one is more Tex-Mex. The wait staff is always very alert to our needs and most of the time they will let you pick the table...More

Thank you for your review. We're very fond of the original part of this historic restaurant. The additions over time have made it a lot easier to fit large families and parties of all kinds. We love seeing families together enjoying great food.

Seems like they are cutting corners on the quality of food. Canned green chili and canned chicken. The fajita chicken salad used to be my favorite but now they don't put very much chicken on it. I hope they can step up their game again.More

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. We only use fire roasted Hatch green chili and fresh chicken marinated with our house fajita seasonings overnight. Our Chicken Fajita Salads are a huge hit because of the 1/2 pound of chicken on each salad. Our...More

Casa Manana is a go to local Mexican food restaurant. The food and service are always reliably good. The cheese enchiladas have been a family favorite for years. We have never been disappointed with a meal at Casa Manana.

Since 1951, Casa Manana is The Gila Valley's oldest Landmark Mexican restaurant serving many generations of families & friends. Our founders, "Gabby" & Emma Gabaldon began using family recipes & creating some of her very own. With a humble beginning in the original red brick house, guests couldn't get enough of of their food. Many additions were made to accommodate the many families that passed on the "Casa Crave" to the next generation. Original cast iron skillets used to make the green chili meat are still used today. The famous beef is still slowly cooked all night long using only a few ingredients and then hand-shredded. From freshly smashed avocados for the guacamole, award winning salsa to dip the addictive mixture of corn and flour chips. You are sure to discover your favorite dish when you stop in. The Casa family is waiting for you.
