I am a true Mexican food fan, and of all the Mexican restaurants in Colorado Springs, Senor Manuel's is by far the best.
The Chimichanga is made with shredded beef and is one of my favorite items from the menu, and the Mondongo is to die for - a kind of chili beef stew that is served alone or atop a burrito....try it atop a cheese or beef burrito.
The chips and salsa are so delicious that they sell them in large take-home quantities...we always take home a double order. The chips are made by the restaurant and are like none you have ever tasted before.
The margaritas are also the best in town. You can order a Mega-magarita and buy the glass, then have it refilled for a great price every time you come back - definately a wise investment.
On some weekend evenings, a strolling musician plays the guitar and sings to everyone's delight, but the children love her the most.
The restaurant has an outdoor patio for dining, as well as several interior dining rooms. The restaurant is family-owned, has received several awards, and has a large following from long-time residents.
