Horrible food!!!

I went to manny's for my birthday and it was horrible! The service was good, but the food was nasty. It was very greasy and bland deffinetly not what I was hoping for on my birthday. I was very disappointed and I will never eat there again. What a waste of money!

WOULDN'T EAT HERE IF I WERE YOU....

Horrible customer service. Heaven forbid you show up late for a reservation of 20 people. We got treated like crap and left before we even got seated. Go down the street to Ponak's if you want to get treated like a person. I don't care how good people say this food is....it's not worth your time.

NOT GOOD if u know what good is.

no, no, no...i've had the best mex food in california. trying to find good mex food in the midwest is like trying to find good seafood, it ain't gonna happen (okay, there are a few restaurants that charge your 401K for seafood flown in that day). If u are from the midwest & don't know any better...by all means. If u are from a coast...skip it.

Best Tamale

Fantastic. Soft chicken taco was excellent and the tamale was the best I ever had.; loaded with pork. Reasonably priced menu.

You Call This Mexican Food???

Manny's food pretends to be Mexican. I lived for 20+ years in Southern Arizona and each time I try a ""Mexican"" restaurant in KC I miss it more and more. This town needs an authentic MEXICAN restaurant. I've tried just about every PRETENDER in KC and have yet to find a good one and Manny's is WAY DOWN the list of anything approaching decent. For those of you that love bland, tasteless MidWest ""Mexican""... go to Manny's! You'll love it!!!

over rated mexican food

Ok so here is a trip to manny's. Drive there park 5 miles away cause they dont have any parking hope you dont get shot walking to get in. Wait 9 years to get seated cause for some reason 10 minutes in spanish means 40 minutes in english. You finally get seated and it takes nine more years to get a waiter to come to your table by that time you have already ate all your chips and salsa and are trying to get the chip guy who cant speak a lick of english to get some more. The food comes and it is so greasy you could lube a car up with it. Bad place to eat.

The place Mexican food on the Boulevard. Food is good and margaritas are great! Be prepared to wait on a weekend because the place is crowded.

Love it

So if you haven't tried Manny's - you should. It's the only place I eat when I am in the mood for Mexican. The service is always right on. Everything prompt and I've never had a bad experience there.

THe Very Best

I can not began to tell you how wonderful Mannys Retaurant is. Fantastic food , wonderful service and wonderful surroundings. There are no such things as ""Speedy Gonzalezes"" or Tex- Mex type food items. This is a Authentic Mexican restaurant that serves Authentic Mexican food. They have by far the best pork in town not to mention mouth watering cheese dip. Wash that down with the best Margs in town and you have had your self a wonderful evening. Do not be fooled by Mannys competitors who sign up on websites like this in order to break the foundation of a Kansas City Landmark. Try it for your self and you will see why Mannys is one of the ""BEST RESTAURANTS IN TOWN.""

Still Waiting

Ok, we used to go to the Stanley Manny's. It closed and we ventured up to SW Blvd for the first time after going to Union Station. Hostess told us it would be a 20 minute wait, well we settled in and patiently waited. 40 minutes later I ask the hostess how much longer. Another gal (who used to be at the Stanley restaurant) was taking people coming in the door and immediately seated them. I protested and we left. I was looking forward to some good burritos, drove all the way back down to Stanleys and went to Jalapenos instead. Goodbye Mannys!

Gringos Like It

The only people that like Margarita's, Manny's, and Jalapeno's are those that don't know good Mexican food. If you like greasy, yellow cheesy, and uninspired Americanized-Mexican food, these are the places for you. My dinner was burned around the edges the second time I went in - have never returned.

What is the hype?

After a recent lunch visit to Manny's to try and get to the root of the hype from fellow co-workers, I still don't get it. While the chips-n-salsa are good, the food is terribly average. More authentic fare is further west down the Boulevard and better food can be found at even On The Border (yikes!). PLEASE tell me what I am missing....if you can find a parking spot.

If you like Mexican food, then Manny's is it! The location on 150th in Overland Park is an excellent location with incredible, authentic mexican and good atmosphere. It's a must eat!
