Looking for alternatives to Dennys? This place may fit the bill. The locals seem to be here, an older crowd for sure. Try the California omelet, cones with crispy hash brown's, toast. Or go with the huevos rancheros, authentic down to the green Chile sauce. The decor is drab, stuck in the 70's but super clean and homely. Probably why... More

Good food and a great "insider" menu for breakfast during the week. Seating outside if you bring your dog, nice seating inside for people as well.

This Old Town Monrovia family restaurant is a gem. The specials are always good. Try the pork chops. They are so good!

The Monrovian has been a favorite family eating place for many years. It is always a kick to come into a restaurant, even after many years, and find the same staff. The menu has been upgraded and the variety is very good. This is a small town restaurant with big town service and menu. Always enjoyable.

My husband took my two children for lunch here, and my youngest fell ill that evening with food poisoning. She was the only one to eat the fruit, which alerts me too food prep or storage. Very disappointing.

This is an old and tired place in need of a makeover with both their decor and their food. Service is good, but the food is not so good. I ordered a grilled fish dish and the fish tasted old, dry and sour. I took 2 bites and couldn't eat anymore. I told my server about it and he asked... More

The Monrovia is just down the street from my husband favorite movie theater and we go often on Sundays after the movie. This must have very nice owner/management as some of the employees have been there for many years. With the exception of one waitress they are very friendly and make you feel at home. When I was very sick,... More
