3521 Oak Grove Ave.
Located in the vibrant heart of Dallas’ “Uptown” since 2005, Manny’s Uptown has outlasted many restaurants in the area – and that’s for a reason! Manny’s Uptown was started my Manuel Rios, a retired Army veteran, inspired by his father (a chef), “Charlie” Rios. Over time, patrons flocking to Manny’s resulted in the eventual expansion by opening other locations in Lakewood, Southlake and North Dallas.
Manny’s is in a quaint old house, predating much of the bigger, flashier new construction around it, and which hearkens back to when “Uptown” was just and old residential neighborhood originally built in the very early 20th century. Nowadays, visiting Manny’s is akin to visiting the home of a family friend – one who just happens to feed everyone who walks in the front door! On pleasant evenings, ask to sit on the deck out front and watch the world go by!
Speaking of food, Manny’s serves all manner of delicious, well-prepared Tex-Mex food, as well as tasty margaritas! Items on the menu include such expected items as Tacos al Carbon, Guiso (both de Res and de Puerco), burritos and enchiladas. However, the menu takes an upscale turn when it offers such tasty choices as Pork Chop Verdes (grilled pork chops in Tomatillo sauce), Blackened Salmon topped with Mango sauce) and a grilled rib-eye steak served with sautéed vegetables, green rice and bean soup. Yummy!
But it doesn’t stop there! Manny’s also serves breakfast (choose from chilaquiles, migas, huevos con chorizo and more!), and lunch specials such as a spinach enchilada, a brisket taco with rice & beans, or perhaps lunch quesadillas!
Manny’s Uptown has a full bar, so if you don’t want to try one of their refreshing margaritas, you can have a Bloody Maria on Sunday morning, or a cocktail in the evening. Topo Chico bottled water is always available, if you just need some not-so-basic rehydration!
Learn from the experience of the crowds of people from all walks of life who’ve been stepping through Manny’s front door for more than a decade, and enjoy their warm, home-style service and food soon!
