We chose this restaurant from the reviews, oh my, have these reviewers ever eaten real Mexican food! Our expectations were to sit down to real Mexican food not a non Mexican version. The beef in my tacos had absolutely no seasoning, not even salt and...More

We have been going here for the last six years. We really enjoy their food. Service has always been great. If there is a mistake, they make it right every time! The food is quite tasty. They have a great atmosphere.

Their chips and salsa, cheese crisps, and green chile are awesome, but their shredded beef tacos are to die for!!!

Among the best green chili burros I've had. But not good?-fish tacos -run from them. They are frozen fish sticks from 1954. Also not impressed with beef tacos as they lack flavor. Go for green chili only. Nice chips that are a combo of flour...More

Since 1951, Casa Manana is The Gila Valley's oldest Landmark Mexican restaurant serving many generations of families & friends. Our founders, "Gabby" & Emma Gabaldon began using family recipes & creating some of her very own. With a humble beginning in the original red brick house, guests couldn't get enough of of their food. Many additions were made to accommodate the many families that passed on the "Casa Crave" to the next generation. Original cast iron skillets used to make the green chili meat are still used today. The famous beef is still slowly cooked all night long using only a few ingredients and then hand-shredded. From freshly smashed avocados for the guacamole, award winning salsa to dip the addictive mixture of corn and flour chips. You are sure to discover your favorite dish when you stop in. The Casa family is waiting for you.
