Despite the El Buey is not a fancy place, for me it's one of the best places to eat in Monterrey. The french fries are fresh and fried at the moment, the best part is that they use real potato and not the "industrial ones". The service is great and the meat is tasty also. I recommend it to anyone... More

It's a small restaurant, but there is a reason there are so many cars out front. The food is exceptional, staff is friendly, and service was very quick. I recommend the arrachera.

Great casual lunch which allows a visitor to get a feel for authentic cuisine. Highly recommended by the locals. It is also quicker than most restaurants in Monterrey if you are seeking to avoid a 2 hour lunch.
