food is ok not my favorite, service so-so. Expect better quality of Mexican food. I order chicken taco it was ok, tequila margarita with double shot taste like just lime juice and simple syrop

So, I decided to give Casa Manana a second try when coworkers decided to have lunch there. My fish tacos where boring and their attempt at salsa was laughable. Our server was poor and messed up 2 of 8 orders. I do like the decor of the place, it's about the only thing with any taste. I will not go... More

it was decent but tortilla's are marginal. nacho's w/ fajita chicken is good but not great. taco's were great, enchiladas decent. for Louisiana probably is as good as it gets but needs a little help, we will try another mex restaurant next time to see if better.

Disappointed is an understatement! We visited July 3rd at 8pm. It was not crowded, and we were happy not to have to stand in lines over this holiday weekend. The menu looks tempting....but we had issues from the moment our server walked up. After waiting 20 minutes (yes 20) just for water....we should have known it was NOT going to... More

I think the salsa is a good way to judge how the rest of the meal will be and am usually right. Don't think much was added to a can of tomato sauce. Was trying to be hopeful so asked for something to spice it up. They offered Tabasco. ..no. I decided on jalapeños and fresh cilantro. ..got dried cilantro.... More

Won't go into a long review of this place because the title of the review sums up Casa Manana. The salsa is like tomato sauce with some spice. Nothing to write home about, although it's sold in grocery stores in Lake Charles . I ordered a chicken chimichanga with beans and rice. When it came out the plate was the... More

I will keep it short, and won't go into details. The food was awful. Just awful. Had heard that it was really good, so expected quite a bit more in terms of taste. SO disappointed. The service was good, though, but we will not be visiting again.

There menu has the usual Mexican Restuarant fair. There are a couple of the owners specialty items mixed in as well. I think the main draw is probably happy hour and there Margaretas, which makes for a pretty loud atmosphere. They also have a family night. I do find their items a little pricy, their Beef Faittas are listed at... More
