The chips and salsa at Hillside Cafe in Manhattan, KS is a must! Their tortilla chips are made to order and come out piping hot!

I remember my first trip. Since I had no clue what to order, I decided to follow my girlfriend's lead and got the Number three with refried beans! Over the years my order has changed to suit my mood that day, but a staple to EVERY order is their chips and salsa. They are made to order every time and the chips come out warm and ready to be salted to your liking. It is delicious!

The daily specials are always changing and always delicious.

The Picadillo that fills their tacos is a family recipe passed down and is unlike any other. Filled with ground beef, potatoes, and spices their Picadillo tacos are delicious! When Barbacoa is on the daily special, you definitely don't want to miss out! Hillside Cafe' is one of the only restaurants that offer a Barbacoa special! Their Whitefish tacos are another favorite of mine in the summer to change it up every now and then!

The Albondigas at Hillside Cafe in Manhattan, KS is everything in the Fall and Winter.

The flavorful broth and hearty meatballs are pure comfort food.

One of my favorite meals at Hillside Cafe comes in the Fall and Winter. Their Albondigas soup is the best! The Albondiga's flavorful broth, and the tender meatballs are both hearty and pure comfort food! For those not familiar, Albondigas is a Mexican Meatball Soup that is served with warm flour tortillas! IT IS AMAZING!!

On my list to try is one of their hamburgers. I understand that you don't think of Hamburgers as Mexican food, but they look delicious and you never know until you try them! Their Hamburgers are an additional daily special and many locals have tried them all! If you have tried any of their burgers, please tell me which one to start with. Trust me, I am here for it!!!
