3) Republic Cafe & Bistro at 1069 Elm St.

"Bringing great food to the people." That's Republic Cafe & Bistro's slogan, and it may be bold, but customers seem to agree as the restaurant has received an average rating of 4.5 stars from 229 reviews on Yelp.com. Republic offers Mediterranean cuisine, and customer favorites include cold antipasti, falafel, and locally grown vegetables and meats. David G. wrote, "The sampler spread platter of whipped feta, glazed carrots, beets and quinoa are equally amazing. Great entrees of locally sourced meats and fish."

2) El Rincon Zacatecano Taqueria at 10 Lake Ave.

It's BYOB to this Mexican restaurant. El Rincon Zacatecano Taqueria is a family-owned restaurant that makes all of the dishes using traditional family recipes. The restaurant offers a variety of breakfast, lunch and dinner options. Customers highly recommend the tacos, but what seems to be most appealing is the fact that customers are allowed to bring their own beverages. One customer stated, "It is a tiny little restaurant with just a few tables. It's also BYOB, and they don't flinch when you bring in a cooler of margarita fixings and start making your own cocktails! The food is real Mexican food; that is hard to find around here." To visit El Rincon's website, click here.

1) The Gyro Spot at 1073 Elm St.

The highest rated restaurant in Manchester is none other than the Gyro Spot. This Greek style restaurant has an American twist to it, offering french fries with gyros that are stuffed with pulled pork, chicken, lamb and many more. The Gyro Spot is even open until 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. Out of 172 reviews, customers have deemed the restaurant worthy of 4.5 out of 5 stars. Customer favorites include the feta fries, gyros and lentil soup. One customer wrote, "This place is unbelievably good. You absolutely must try the Gyro Spot if you haven't already. I almost always get either the chicken or pork gyro. My advice: order your gyro with both Tzatziki sauce and their "special sauce" on it." To visit the Gyro Spot's website, follow this link.
