BIG Margarita's!

The food here is always good and the Margarita's are BIG and awesome. The service is a bit slow so if you are in a hurry go elsewhere. Lots to choose from on the menu.

Monterrey is a pretty standard Mexican restaurant. Nothing really outstanding about it. The service is usually fair and the food is typical cheap Mexican food.

I have a theory that how much you like a Mexican restaurant is based on the one you go to the most. Having said that, I found the food at Monterrey ok but not outstanding. I thought the guac dip was a bit pastey but my wife thought it was ok. The entree was like a fajita with cheese and... More

We dined on a weekend night, and although the parking lot was full we were seated immediately. We won't return though, due to the same experience as before. The meat on our dinners was hot, but the beans and rice were cold. I sent mine back, but my guests didn't and had upset stomachs afterwards. Even if the food was... More

We had supper at Monterrey Mexican Restaurant and will most likely not go back. Although everyone was very nice, the food was not as we expected. Usually Mexican food has some spicy flavor but this was rather bland. Guess it is okay for those who do not like their food spicy.

I have been eating here for over 19 years. Never been disappointed, staff is fun and friendly. Food is excellent. Prices are reasonable, drinks are cold and the margeritas are out of this world. Very kid friendly.

Food was fresh and taste was good but not authentic Mexican. The service was not the best but nothing to get upset about. I guess I should sum it up to just a good average restaurant .

My husband and I went here on a late lunch break (which was probably considered dinner at the time we went). The place was pretty empty, with only a couple of tables occupied. I did notice that there were a few people that came in to do “To Go” orders. Not too much to say about this place except there... More

This is one of the better Mexican Restaurant in the area. The food is consistently great, the waiters will advise you if they think you ordered too much. They also will recommend items that are wonderful. I have yet to be disappointed in the food and service. We have been there at least 6 times since Dec 2012.
