El Manantial is nestled on the east end of Amarillo Blvd. in an unassuming building, leaving the inexperienced diner unaware of the culinary delights that wait inside.

Open since 1987, El Manantial serves authentic Mexican food – you won’t find Tex-Mex-style offerings on its menu. There’s a range of options to satisfy your hunger for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Get started with fresh-made chips and salsa and be sure the try the accompanying bean pot, which has just the right amount of salty heat in its broth.

Seafood offerings are plentiful at El Manantial. You can’t miss with local favorites like shrimp cocktail, chile relleno smothered in shrimp and mushrooms, or Majarra Fritta, a deep fried fish marinated in lime juice. Enjoy live Mariachi music several days a week, which adds to the charm of this cozy diner.

3823 Amarillo Blvd. East, 383.1852

Open Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m.-8 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 9 a.m.-9 p.m.; Sunday, 10 a.m.- 8 p.m.
