Took timeout with colleagues on a Friday afternoon to have lunch at El Gran Pastor. I loved the food, sauces of chillies and vegetables. My taste buds still crave for the spicy sauce of red chillies and avocado. A must place to eat if u r in town.

everything is good: staff is friendly and helpful, appetizers are awesome, and the meat is perfectly cooked. Reserve or arrive early, because it;s always full.

Don't know to much about Cabrito their main dish in Monterrey but for my taste it was too greasy with no flavor n very very expensive for my wallet, at 150.00 dollars per Cabrito. The people or service it was excellent.

If you like goat or want to try it, this is the place. I prefer the plato mixto so that you get various cuts and some beef steak too.

Got there at around seven pm not busy, like it normaly is, order appetizer queso con chorizo, guacamole, the refried beans are to die for, shared a cabrito plate and it was great, cost was very resonable, overall a very nice dinner. Restaurant was very clean service prompt and polite. Can wait ot go back.
