    Manuel's boasts an extensive beer selection, but you can't beat the deal on $6 pitchers of Miller High Life and Pabst Blue Ribbon. It's also one of the few bars downtown with its own parking lot. Read more

    You've gotta try their wings. They'll even serve them to you with no sauce for those darn kids that insist that buffalo wings are "spicy". Manny's has big tables, is kid friendly, and lots of fun.

    Atlanta took a deep breath when this Highlands landmark took a hiatus to remodel (i.e., shed 2,000 of its 9,600 square feet), but don’t worry: It’ll be back soon! Read more

    Get the loaded dogzilla! Its amazing! Laura the waitress is funny, fun loving, and great positive attitude! Also kinda sassy, in a very good way! Plus they have a spot for clergy parking!

    The Moth, a storytelling event held in many cities across the country, meets here the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7:30. Come early to get a seat; the room's often full by seven

    Pub food is usually pretty terrible, but at Manny's, that just isn't the case. Try the French Dip or the Fish and Chips. They make a darn good martini too, just don't ask for a Long Island; they don

    Great food & drinks but its really nice to be able to go somewhere at night with no music. You can actually have a conversation over a cocktail without straining your voice and going deaf.

    We seriously love Manuel's. Good food. Good people. Good MARTA accessibility via bus 16 (N. Highland or Five Points connection) and bus 102 (Candler Park or North Avenue connection).

    One of the original ATL favorites. Built in 1956. Neighborhood bar that is uniquely decorated. Great conversation and service. One of my favs! Read more

    Great service, the best atmosphere...Manuel's is great for small meetings, large events, or just a great meal and a drink or three.

    Love this place. Lots of history. You can stay at the Highland Inn down the street and walk there for supper. Makes for a lovely evening.

    Respect your roots: Local folk hero Manuel Maloof was the first CEO of DeKalb County, an activist for the construction of Spaghetti Junction, and founder/owner of Manuel's Tavern.

    To Luis A and Greg G complaining about service. It's a bar. If it's busy you have to wait. If you're too lame to understand that, you don't deserve Manuel's. Go to Applebees and shut up. You suck.

    Easy parking, cheap drinks, quiet enough to hear your company, spacious but alive. Perfect place to meet an online date. Just saying!

    Always a great place for a beer and some GREAT pub food. Also, lots of liberal minded people (actors and politicians) frequent here!

    Try the Reuben - it's grilled and served with kraut and home-made Thousand Island dressing on the side - just like it's supposed to be.

    If this will be your only trip to Manuel's, you have to get the Loaded Dogzilla.

    Manuel's is Manuel's. Apparently the baby boomers were able to cash their checks at Manuel's on Friday to get their drink on.

    Don't come with a party, the way the tab works is frustrating especially when everyone is trying to leave.
