Not my favorite anymore

The food is good but I actually prefer Senor Salsa these days. This place used to be my favorite, but the last couple of visits was somewhat of a disappointment.

When were in the mood for Tex-Mex this is a good bet. The food always comes out fast and fresh. The service is usually pretty good. Try the chimichanga.

Even thought I am not a real Tex Mex lover, the food in this place is exceptional. You can find something for everyone. It is prepared and to the table in very good time. The help is very good and always there to help. They serve the best chips and salsa in town.

A group of 7 family members went here for lunch. Food was nothing I'd rush back for but it wasn't bad either. The service was really lacking. Took a long time to take our order, bring drinks, etc... 3 of us got a drink refill but then she rushed off. The other 4 never did get a refill. Didn't see... More

We ate here the evening before Thanksgiving. The food is pretty good and their carnitas were close to authentic. Chips and salsa include with the meal at no charge. Silverware and glassware appeared older and well used. This really bothers me as it can sometime be hard to tell if the cloudiness on the glasses is because they have been... More

While in town on an overnight trip, we met with my brother and his family at Monterey's. Got a reservation for 7 in an hours notice, nice table. Service was good, fast, and hot. Served chips and sasa, no charge, but we ordered chili-con-case (was really good). They didn't automatically add 20% gratuity to the ticket. We all enjoyed the... More

Monterey's is a good place to get some tex-mex food. You can't go wrong eating at Monterey's. I always have the Fajita and it's always good. Every time our family has a craving for mexican, we go here.

The name of the restaurant has changed to Monterey's Little Mexico and, as far as I can tell, is no longer a chain. The inside is dim and seems dingy but the waitstaff is fairly attentive and the food is fast. Unfortunately, the food is fast. I had a taco salad with chicken - the waitress asked about salad dressing.... More

The service and selection here is very good. My husband and I liked our dishes and appreciated the attentiveness of the waitstaff. We will come here again when we are in town.
