The best!

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.

Monterey's was a delicious restaurant at a reasonable price. The atmosphere was great. We ended up getting fajitas and they were delicious and filling. They do have good prices on drinks as well. I would definitely go back.

Server named Pedro gave great service. Kitchen times great. Solo singer/guitar player was awesome. I didn't like the dish that well that I ordered because the cheese sauce was way too hot for me and I already had a headache from being out in the sun all day. I would come here again!

Had the enchiladas but they were a little tough. Salsa is good. There did seem to be too much salts. Good menu .
