On the Boulevard you can always find a wide array of Mexican restaurants on the west side. The one that has always held my admiration is Manny’s. I have had many dinners at Manny’s but this is the first for 2010. This dining experience was not as superb as the previous visits. Dinner at Manny’s on a Saturday is always a busy experience. We arrived a little after 6pm and were quickly seated. Our party of seven was seated in the upstairs area of the renovated restaurant.
Our drink order was taken as soon as we were seated and our server was very polite. We did have a few drinks forgotten, but that was quickly corrected. After our food was ordered it was swiftly delivered. I found that our refills of chips, salsa and refreshments were not kept up on. For such a small area you would think we would have a little more service than experienced.
My next complaint would be the food. Our orders were completely mixed up and took forever to figure out. The chips were overcooked and burnt. The pork was dried out and did not have enough red sauce. The rice was excellent as always. Despite my disappointment in the food I know I will be back. I am hoping next time the food will return to its original flavor and offer the authentic cuisine I remember and admire.
