Orlando Itza and Fernanda Mondragon are the dynamic duo of this place! Efrain was also really funny and they all took great care of my family, even when the kids dined on their own. The various buffets are delicious and I'm missing the incredible salmon...station right now!More

The food was good but for people with dietary restrictions especially vegan, vegetarian it was not accommodating. They had vegan pancakes on the menu but the staff had no idea what it was or how to make it.

The service was top notch and our waiter ( Alejandro Velazquez) was very good!! my entire stay there I made sure I asked for him! Great staff is always a PLUS for me and makes the dinning experience so much better. The food isn't a...buffet style due to covid, but everything was made to order Fresh and was delicious!!!More

We are here and due to Covid, all buffets are closed. So Manglar uses the menus to provide you a made to order delicious meal. The added touches to make your meal special include a bike that delivers pastries to your table and the cart...to make you a tasty street taco. So do not fret, your meal will be delightful! Our waiters were very attentive.More

I would like to say I got outstanding service from Alejandro at the Manglar restaurant. He greeted me with a smile early in the morning which started the day off on a great foot. When I returned each day I would always ask for him....So if you want to see a smiling face, very polite, and prompt ask for Alejandro.More
