The food was top notch, authentic, and delicious. The server was very friendly and accommodating. Couldn't remained this enough. Best meal we had during our four day stay at SPI.

Migas at Manuel's is a must every time I visit SPI. No tex-mex here. Fresh tortillas and hot salsa with this traditional egg dish is a breakfast divine. Gets very crowded on weekends.

This place is a local hangout and you need to be hungry as the tacos are big and full. The only problem is this place only takes CASH.

We love manuals in here often. We get a burrito and split it as it is more than an enough for two people. Everything you get it manuels is made on the spot and it's honestly just fantastic! Highly recommend to anyone visiting Port Isabel.

My husband enjoyed huge breakfast burrito with sausage, egg,potatoes, cheese. I had lunch with a Mexican plate of chicken taco & chicken enchiladas. The sides of rice & beans were delicious with homage chips, salsa, & totillas. Family friendly service.

THE BEST breakfast ever! Nice, family atmosphere. The food is amazing. My in-laws visit this place a few times a year, and the staff always remember them. The food was so good and the servings are immense!
