Excellent Food - Great Service!

Visited for a late lunch. Had the Pablano Lunch and SWMBO had a chicken enchilada. The mole sauce with the Pablano was excellent and the enchilada was very good. It's the best Mexican restaurant in the city of Monroe. We stop in every few months and will continue to do so!

We happened upon this place after a soccer tournament. The service was great. Excellent chips and salsa. We were pleased to find a whole page of vegetarian options on the menu. Portions, quality and prices were perfect. If we weren't from out of town we would go here weekly.

My family and I ate here a few days ago. We most likely won't be going back. I ordered the tacos al pastor--the flavor was good, but the steak was realllly dry which made them hard to eat. My husband got the mole poblano and said it was "just ok". Our child got the "chicken tenders", or at least that's... More

Our family of 5 visits here often. You consistently get delicious food and great friendly service. The food is always hot and fresh. The menu is very extensive and affordable. Also very important is the kids love it. I highly recommend to everyone

I love the food and service. Quick and hot. Their vegetarian meals are amazing. And I like their drink specials. My husband likes that they have Modelo Beer on tap.

On an extended visit to Monroe, didn't know I would be able to find a decent Mexican restaurant, but I did! Huge menu, very good food. Nice atmosphere. Decent service. Have gone more than once during my visit and always pleased.

The food isn't bad, its quality isn't always consistent. Have found the same with the service. Still prefer La Fiesta.

We had business in the Monroe area on a bright Saturday afternoon and had heard good things about this place. The traffic was horrible due to construction on Telegraph Road heading to the restaurant but other than that, this was a great experience. I got the "Special Dinner" and my wife went with Enchiladas Rancheras. Both came with a generous... More

Love the mango margaritas, we get them every time we are there. Always happy with the dishes we get, but we don't often change -- we love the combo dinner, choosing 1, 2, or 3 entrees with the beans/rice and it's always good, always generous, and a great price. The freshly made salsa and guacamole is awesome. I will stop... More

This nice Mexican Restaurant used to be a local favorite of mine. I wish I could still say the same. Most of the food remains very good, but there seems to be some things dropping in quality?! Ownership appears to have changed hands, and with it seems to have went some of the authentic recipes. Hand picked vegetables and other... More
