Manuel’s Mexican Restaurants will celebrate the family-owned eatery’s 50th Year Anniversary on Friday, July 4, with a 50 for 50-percent off theme.

All seven locations, including the ones at 2820 E. Indian School Road and 12801 N. Cave Creek Road, will offer guests a menu to choose from with more than 50 menu items that will be 50-percent off.

Manuel’s Mexican Restaurants have spent the last 50 years feeding first, second and third generations of families while employing four generations of their own family members.

Manuel’s Mexican Restaurants were created in 1964 by Manuel and Alice Salazar, with their first location being opened at 32nd Street and Indian School Road. Fifty years later, Manuel’s is run by three generations of family members—with the fourth generation starting to learn the family business. Many of the employees of Manuel’s have worked for the company for more than 20 years.

Manuel’s has won numerous awards for its food, including its salsa, tamales, beans, Albondigas soup and rice. For details, visit
