I ordered rolled tacos, they were clearly from Costco, "Delimex" brand. I can not believe a restaurant would pawn off frozen food. I called to inquire about the origin of the rolled tacos. The employee said they were not from Costco, I then asked if...More

When in this area, Johnny Manana's is a place we always visit. Sometimes it is very busy, but worth the wait. Outdoor patio seating in the sunshine with big umbrellas is fun. Staff is friendly and the great food makes for a super lunch!

The manager "Eddie" is a mean person, not at all interested in his customers and a cheap skate. On yelp, someone wrote that these guys scheme and get kickbacks from the parking authority -- or Western towing -- and it's true! Right when we sat...More
