Good food

I have eaten at Monterey's in Bartlesville many times and it is always good. The spinach enchiladas are really good as is the Cancun chicken. The kids really like it as well.

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant. But here lately I have been getting the Mexican hamburger. Oh my gosh! I'm in love! Big juicy burger with melted cheese and jalapeños on this sweet home made bun. I can only eat half so I take the other half home with me. They come with French fries. You have to try their... More

The food is almost always very good. Like everywhere else their prices are a little on the high side but it's okay for a couple of times a month. I suggest going during lunch for their specials.Smaller portions so be forewarned. Larger portions in evenings but also more $$. I don't drink so I can't comment on their liquors or... More

I ordered something not on the menu. I asked if I could get a wet bean burrito, had to explain way "wet" is. What I received was a tiny burrito with about a tablespoon of beans. It was covered in ok cheese sauce. I guess I shouldn't complain as the burrito was cheaper than my tea. The chips were pasty... More

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
