Excellent food, excellent service, excellent atmosphere; everything was so excellent! We were seated right away 6 pm on a Saturday night. The salsa that came with the chips had a small bite to it, but it was flavorful and delicious. They do offer a much spicier salsa upon request. I ordered the Burrito Verde with shredded beef and hubby had... More

Have tried to give this place a chance. It is just your typical Mexican food Americanized for the masses and people who think this is what good mexican food is. It seems to do good business but I can't figure out why. We went there and tried to give them our name and we were ignored. We stood there waiting... More

Monterrey has a great menu served quickly by pleasant people. The salsa is delicious with a fantastic flavoring of cilantro. If the house blend is too spicy for you, they quickly bring you a milder version which is equally tasty but less troublesome to a delicate digestive system. They have a great variety of combos, my favorite is #9 with... More

We found this place after spending a day at Adventureland. We were given plenty plenty of chips and salsa. Everyone was very friendly. They had a very large menu but not a lot of 'american' options. I was amazed at how quickly our food was delivered. Honestly I've never received my food so quickly. Everything was very hot and fresh.... More
