This restaurant is closed & gone- should be removed from list. Don't try to go there as it has been torn down.

The last time I was at El Monte's, it was for a large bridal shower in the private party room, but I've always enjoyed going there whether it was for a meal or a party. The owners, Joe & Tina, are great people, and make you feel welcome. I would strongly recommend that private room to hold a family or... More

Just attended a private funciton at El Monte for about 40 folks and they did a good job. Food was good, private funcitons are in a separate building so no interference from regular patrons.

I have got to say first that my family would rather go to a chain, than El Monte. We went to El Monte on Weds night, because I want to get away from chain restaurants and support local. We were seated and greeted wonderfully, and asked about drinks and menu choices in good time. In a matter of half an... More

While searching for an event venue, this was recommended. We went on a Friday night to check it out. It is a smallish place,which is likely a converted house/or business, broken up into three rooms. We were promptly seated in a very crowded dining room at the side, next to a large party with a screaming baby. The menu is... More

El Monte's is a great local restaurant. My boyfriend and I prefer to eat here rather than some of the chain restaurants that are nearby - we've found that you get larger portions, and more freshly prepared dishes, than you can get at Olive Garden, Red Lobster, and the like. The service is prompt and friendly, prices are affordable, and... More

Another year for our company Christmas party with great food and privacy in the back building with unfortunate results . The heat had apparently gone out prier to us arriving with a feeble attempt to solve with a handful of space heaters and to make matters much worst our dinner started arriving at the tables at 9:00 . In years... More
