Manuel’s Mexican Food restaurants were established in 1964 at 32nd Street and Indian School Road by Manuel and Alice Salazar.  Our desire to serve the community with a friendly atmosphere and to serve our guests with the finest in Mexican food still holds true today as much as it did the first day we opened our doors.


As our family grew so did the amount of restaurants.  Today, all of the restaurants are owned and operated individually yet collectively by all members of the Salazar family.


Manuel’s has received numerous awards for our quality food and we maintain that quality by preparing our food from scratch daily, just as we did in 1964. 


We hope you have a pleasant experience with us and give us the opportunity to serve you again.
