Since we live within walking distance we frequent this spot on weekends. It offers a wide selection of Mexican food in a great setting. In the summer the deck seating is great while in the winter heating lamps keep you nice and warm. The restaurant itself is a small little college style restaurant that serves up good portions. Overall I... More

I've read the poor reviews of this place, but my husband and I love it and visit here often. Don't expect tex-mex, traditional mexican, or any other type of true mexican food. This place marches to a beat all of its own. If it's your first time here, go by the title and order one of their huge burritos. I... More

The food is good. I like the burritos and the salsa is fresh. If you like high-end tequillas and a good variety of cervezas, stop by El Rey's.

This place was highly recommended by Chez Fon Fon in Birmingham as we drove south. Easy to get to from I-65. It was 70 degrees outside in February, so we sat outside. The steak enchiladas were impressive, covered in an interesting chili sauce. Reminded me of Mexico, in a good way. The mighty burrito with black beans and avocado was... More

Below average restaurant. We were excited to go with friends based on reviews and recommendations from neighbors. Having grown up in California and having lived in San Antonio, TX, I can tell you, this place is neither tex-mex, california mexican, nor just plain mexican. Food was expensive and fairly low quality. I have to agree with the person that said,... More

El Rey provides a great respite from the usual strip mall atmosphere pervading Montgomery. Think laid back '60s California Chic. Margaritas flow by the pitcher, YUM. A good (by Montgomery) beer selection. Sounds like an iland in the sea of hell that is the Montgomery "culinary scene". The only flaw is the food, prices I mean. A burrito can easily... More
