I used to live next door to Manny's, and it was one of the few places on South Street that I could actually call a bar. I never really liked the club-like atmosphere of many bars, and I found refuge in Manny Brown's. The service tends to be pretty bad - you'll have to flag people down if you want a refill on your lager. The ribs are great, and the burgers aren't bad either. Music is usually pretty decent (there's a jukebox), but not so loud you can't hear your companions talk. A good place to hang out with friends you already have, but probably not the best bar if you're out to get numbers.
Pros: relaxed atmosphere, prices, ribs, booths
Cons: parking, service
