Good Food

had a lunch here - I had cheese burrito it was very nice. I also enjoyed the chips and salsa. The prices a fair and the service is great. This is the type of place which has a loyal following of locals - and a diverse group. If you are in the area stop in.

The fajitas were average. Had better and I've had worse. The fajitas for 2 can easily feed 3. They gave us so much food. My first beer was flat but the 2nd was good. Service was fair so I would give it a second try if I lived near by.

We happened upon this restaurant one night and what a great meal! This is the most like California Mexican food we have had since moving to Georgia. Fresh, authentic and delicious. The restaurant is small and you almost miss it driving past. Wait staff is friendly and super attentive. We have been back three times and every time has exceeded... More

What Monterrey lacks in atmosphere, it makes up for in tasty food and excellent service. Rene is the best waiter in Atlanta.

The good: Overall food was excellent. I had steak and chicken fajitas served with rice and beans. Very tasty and reasonably priced The bad: The salsa is very watery and bland. Runs off chips and spills on your clothes The ugly: Nada.

We've been coming here for over 15 years. The food is consistently great and the service is outstanding. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but it's a perfect little place!

Well seasoned guac, I had the el combo wife had molcajete. I highly suggest the molcajete, the poblano rellenos (ask for them with chorizo).

If you want great food and don't care about slow service this is your place. Atmosphere borders on dirty but never had a problem due to that.
