The "creative" interior Mex ("not Tex-Mex") fare is "reason enough alone" to love these Austin "reliables" also prized for their modest bills and boozy Sunday brunch with "live music"; the Downtown original is "dark and hip", while the Arboretum offshoot is more "airy" and open with an oak-lined patio that's popular for sipping "terrific cocktails" during happy hour.

The menu at the original Manuel's remains reliably satisfying with innovative twists along the way. For a good introduction to the kitchen's capabilities, we recommend the tortas de papa---masa cakes with house-made venison chorizo and… Read More

Manuel's Restaurant Review

Since its opening in 1984, the original Manuel's has offered a menu that is reliably satisfying with innovative twists along the way. For a good introduction to the kitchen's capabilities, we recommend the tortas de papa --- masa cakes with house-made venison chorizo and black beans with a fiery roasted onion coulis. Those more accustomed to Tex-Mex can find fancied-up delights, like nachos...

This is one of the few moderately priced holdouts to be found in a downtown dining scene that's been steadily heading uptown. Although there are some Tex-Mex dishes on the menu, most of the menu items are interior Mexican. You can get well-prepared versions of Mexican standards and some tweaked versions of the more common dishes, but Manuel's also offers hard-to-find specialties such as the...

This is the 2nd time at Manuel's for a pre-theater meal. Love the queso that they serve with tortillas instead of chips. Margaritas excellent and not too strong. Wait staff knowledgeable and helpful with suggestions.

Salsa was very bland and allthough we asked for flautas that weren't spicy they had quite a kick to them.. enchiladas with verde were very soggy

Manuel's opened for business in 1984 on Congress Avenue in Austin, Texas. Determined to realize his vision to serve regionally inspired Mexican food in a contemporary setting— a shocking concept at the time—founder Greg Koury pickaxed the concrete floors of an old jazz club by hand! Today, his wife Jennifer McNevin and longtime business partner Ahmad Modoni join him in the management of the...

Brunch, Take Out, Latin, Mexican: Manuel's first location, an industrial-looking place in the heart of downtown, invites folks to partake of campechana, a soup-like dish of seafood, tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and serrano peppers. It also presents pollo en molé and Tex-Mex enchiladas and burritos. In addition, a selection of interior Mexican dishes includes chile relleno en nogada, or roasted...
