A favorite of Manchesterites, locals gush about the fresh ingredients, cute interior, and authentic flavor. Decorated in bright colors and woods, the interior is neat but also unique, not so formulaic as many chain restaurants. Like any taqueria worth its salt, Agua de Horchata, a rice-milk drink and a hibiscus water, Agua de Jamaica. Enchiladas, quesadillas, sandwiches, and nachos are all on the menu, as is flan for dessert. For those who like a good beer with their food, Mexican beer as well as wine coolers are on hand.
Truly a legend around Manchester, the Red Arrow Diner is a must for any and all diner lovers. Ranked as one of the top ten diners in the United States by USA Today, the place has as much personality as it has good and delicious food. Not only do major newspapers rank it as a favorite, but the likes of Senator Hilary Clinton, Ty Pennington, and the Barenaked Ladies have all had a bite at the Red Arrow. And with name plates on the booth, you will know exactly who sat in the same seat as you, giving you a brush with fame! Open 24 hours, the diner serves all meals at all times of the day. So whether you are looking for a stack of waffles with peanut butter and chocolate chips in the evening, or a veggie burger early in the morning, the Red Arrow can serve you. The diner has its own line of soda, try the Cream Soda. The Chicken Fingers have an extra spice making them extra juicy and delicious. A wide selection of pies rounds out the menu with fruit and cream pies, as well as “fingers” which are a lot like Twinkies only in a different dimension entirely.
Not content with pizza in the modern age, 900 Degrees Pizzeria uses the pizza-making techniques born in Naples, Italy long ago. The recipe for the dough is "authentic" and all pizzas are cooked in a wood-fired oven to add shades to the taste. This oven's average temperature is, you guessed it, 900 degrees Fahrenheit. That's a hot pizza! The thin crusted pizzas come in flavors like "Vesuvio" with fresh mozzarella, roasted peppers, ricotta, and prosciutto. For those very few who don't like pizza, other entrees such as Red Pepper Panini and Tuscan Ribeye Steak are available.
