I don't see what all the good reviews are about. Maybe I just picked the wrong dish and everyone else picked the right one. First off the service is a big different. You go in and order and pay then get your tickets and get seated. We waited about 30 minutes for our food to come out. I ordered the... More

Wife and I came here a couple Saturdays ago for dinner after reading a few good reviews. We walked in and weren't quite sure of the procedure. Turns out you're supposed to order at the front counter, pay, and then sit down and wait for them to bring you your food. We briefly snacked on complementary chips (greasy) and hot... More

I couldn't quite believe the reviews that said there were actually huge chunks of fat in the barbacoa. Shame on me. The wife's enchiladas were good, however. The hot sauce is HOT!

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.
