I have my favorite haunts I usually go, but decided to try this little place right in my back yard. Not really into Mexican food, but this was a delight. Interesting delicious menu, nice variety of beers and cocktails, love the free nachos and salsa instead of bread. Nice ambience. Servers are a little slow so go when you have... More

We were in a rush but needed food so we made a quick stop to pick up burritos. Everything about it was a mistake. We were sent to the bar to order. The barmaid put in the order and then after 20 minutes, cleaned her computer screen flirted with a patron, helped an associate with an order before finally going... More

The best thing about Johnny Manana's on Ridge Ave is the giant hot pepper on the outside of the restaurant. Reservations??? Hum no I don't think so... Oh here they are on this scrap paper. Chips and salsa are fine, beer was cold. From there the food went downhill fast. Buffalo wings were drenched in hot sauce. Sloppy and too... More

Out of house tequila so instead of 5 it cost 9.50 no substitute really? Empanadas were burned and fish tasted funky, no flavor on pork tacos, service ok ... overall ... sucked. Bar in back is good but pass on food.

My friends and I had a horrid experience recently from start to finish. While the food was ok (JUST ok), that was the ONLY part of our visit, other than our nice, apologetic but very new waitress, who seemed as appalled as we were as our dinner unfolded. We arrived at 7 and spotted an outdoor table on the patio... More

Went on a Sat for a early dinner so it wasn't very crowed yet. Very good themed décor. Our waitress, Shari was very attentive. The BBQ Chicken Burrito was HUGE... They have a decent selection of menu items to keep you happy.

She said well I don't know how to explain it to you any better than what's on the menu. You don't know what it is?? Well obviously not if she's asking you. Then I ordered a second drink, had...
