Authentic Mexican food

Excellent food, try the enchiladas. It's always busy. You order then go sit down. The staff can be a bit rude at times but are attentive when it's really busy.

On recommendation from other folks, I stopped here at Montelongo's Mexican Restaurant for lunch. And I was not let down! The place was very busy even though I arrived at nearly 1:00 p.m. But the waitstaff were knowledgeable and professional and very pleasant. Once seated, my table, drinking glasses and flatware were clean and tidy. The food arrived hot and... More

We came around 8:15 on a Monday morning and had our food on the table very fast. The service is nice, the portions are perfect, and the food tastes great. There are good flavors in everything, and its not expensive at all. Can't wait to come try them out for lunch!

I was in the mood for a breakfast burrito and went online to check what was available and I was surprised to see Montelongo,s on the list. I went in and it was practically empty that time of the morning on a Saturday. I had two burritos and coffee and was under 10 dollars. Good food and quick service and... More

I never would have discovered Montelongo without the assistance of a local. The food is authentic and home-made. The service was very good. Beware, the salsa is quite hot but very favorful. I had the chile relleno; not quite as good as the chile relleno at Durango's but it beats anything I get at home in CA.

This family-owned business has been around for a long time and offers good authentic Mexican food. The hot sauce has a great kick, to say the least, and go great with the fresh chips. The breakfast burritos are perfect to start the morning off right. The #5 is also highly recommended as well as the enchiladas. Perfect lunch spot for... More

My family and I have been going to this place for years (almost every week) The owner has never asked our names, the service is HORRIBLE and the last time we went the hostess sat 2 families ahead of ours when we had been there WAY longer. Food can be a hit or a miss. I would rather go to... More

We went on the recommendation of locals. Easy to find from our hotel, fast services and great prices. Delicious salsa to start the meal. Excellent food, totally homemade taste. Can't wait to go back.

I was not expecting the best when I went, but from the reviews I read I thought that it was going to be good. I was wrong. The tortillas were homemade and delicious. The beans tasted canned. The carne guisada had good flavor but meat was tough and fatty. I had a lot of fat in my burrito I got... More
