I have only had breakfast when he opens at 07:00 in the morning. Manuel is always ready with coffee. Enjoy his omelettes. Sign the wall for charity.

My family and I went in for breakfast this morning right before we made our way back to Fort Worth. This place was delicious, I got the huevos rancheros and was in love with the flour tortillas. Definitely a place to go to when visiting...More

Breakfast Taco was the best around. The size could have fed two. Our waiter was awesome for a group of nine. We always come back to Manuel’s when here on SPI.

I’ve been going to Manuel’s since they were located on the island. Great spot. Manuel himself still works every day. Huge portions at affordable prices. Don’t forget to get a jar of salsa to take home.

Another small family-owned restaurant with great food. You must be patient as seating is done by writing your name on a pad as soon as you arrive. Food is freshly made and the flour tortillas, well they are "super sized".
