I went to Monterrey this weekend with my husband and he really wanted me to try cabrito which is the most famous food there. We made a little research and El Gran Pastor seemed to be the place to go.

This place was not bad. Good meats, fair prices. Not the cheapest, but still good prices. Parking is a wreck, but this is Mexico. Nice people.

It's a bit expensive 9 between 20USD-30USD per plate. If you don't like meat, this is not the place for you. There is nothing but meat there. You can see the open roasted goats over the fire. And you must try the goat. It is excellent. The salad bar left a lot to be desired with bottles of Sam's Club... More

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.

We visited this restaurant after the recommendation of an uncle, and in general of the people we know here in Monterrey, it is by far the best option to have a good cabrito in Monterrey, with the best value-price relation and awesome attention. To begin the cabrito is not dry as in other places, they give several appetizers free of... More

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.
