I've been going here for thirty years and the last time I was there, the food was inedible. This place has really gone down hill. We order our usual combo meals, but when it came out, my guest and I took one bite and said to each other, something is really wrong. It looked like canned cat food in our... More

There was 10 of us and everyone was very happy with their meal. Drinks snuck up on you as they were strong. Lacked ambience but made up with good service. Price was right!

This was our second time to eat here. The first time was average Mexican food in May,2016. The last time in August was pretty bad. The food was cold,greasy and unappetizing to say the least.

I had heard from some friends that this restaurant was very very good. However my opinion and it is only my opinion that it was definitely not the best Mexican restaurant I have been to. If in Colorado Springs I would venture instead to a place called Daniel's taco's or Monica' tacos. But back to this place. There are no... More

Great family restaurant with excellent food. The food is great and they have the best margaritas I've ever tasted. Customer service was excellent and the prices fair. I highly recommend trying this restaurant!

We have been coming here for years. The food is very good. The Mondo (a sauce) is unique and love it, more like a spicy beef chile gravy. The Green chile is really good. The chips are homemade, the salsa is thin, but delicious. Traditional Mexican.

Had lunch here with friends and were very pleased. All the servings were huge and very tasty. I had the chicken enchilada, and there must have been a pound of shredded chicken in it. I could not finish it. Our waiter did not know what salsa verde is, but the kitchen did, and it was excellent.

This place is not going to appeal to everyone. It's been in Colorado Springs for like 40 years. It's funky and old school... but the food is GREAT! They offer a mild salsa with the chips they serve... but order the "green" salsa or a dish of their pico when you get your chips. SPICY HOT but delicious!! Their chili... More

Sixteen of us visited Senor Manuels as a family. Its a classic "mom and pop" place established in 1970 and serving great original mexican food. We had a wide range of the food and you will be lucky to finish! The chimichangas are recommended for the super hungry. The staff were super friendly and helpful, especially as we had people...

This marks 32 years that I've been dining at Senor Manuel's and I've been consistently pleased for all these years. My favourite is the chile relleno. More than one comment is critical of the building. Who cares what the building looks like? Too many people are used to chain restaurants that have fancy buildings, but the food at those restaurants... More
