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.

After reading reviews and looking for a close place to my hotel I went for dinner. The service was very fast and the opening nachos and sauce were nice and a little hot as should be. The main course was tasty although rather small but the Tamale was tasteless and very disappointing. I sat in the patio which is covered... More

We used to go here a lot for dinner but now we mostly go for lunch. Its pretty consistently good at any time. It can be crowded particularly on Fridays, but is usually worth the wait. The food comes pretty quickly even when its crowded. At lunch, I woudl recommend the lunch fajitas or the lunch chimichangas. If you are... More

Monterrey's, which technically has an Atlanta address, is exactly what it looks like: a good place to get good Tex-Mex at a good price. Nothing pretentious, but sometimes, no parking either. Park across the street at the bank at dinner time and on weekends, but be careful crossing LaVista Road. This place is appropriate for any family or group wanting... More

Monterrey has been in its current location for years and in another nearby center before that. Although the menu and the space has expanded over the years, the food is dependably Tex-Mex and reasonably priced. We ordered the Carne Asada and Yolandas (three chicken enchiladas with ranchero sauce) plus a jumbo frozen margarita (27 ounces and two straws). Chips and... More

I have a Monterrey dinner a few times a month. It is what it is. No frills Mexican food. Lots of staff always on hand means that the orders are quick to the table, which I appreciate after a long day at work. There are a lot of tables and booths, as well as an outdoor covered patio area. When... More
