Tasty chops

Was in Tuler for work and my inlaws picked me up for dinner. Villa Montez is lovely outside set on the hill with white lights. Too cool for patio dining but on a warmer day, that would be perfect. Friendly waiter, pretty good chips n salsa, great double cut chops with citrus sauce-though we both... read more

We always enjoy dining here. So many good choices but our personal favorite is the fish tacos. Very popular so make a reservation.

The restaurant is our go to Mexican food location. The ultimate margarita is very good and we think the spinach dip is the best in town. Osso buca with fresh tortillas is probably my favorite dish in town. Cons - not many, but the restaurant can be on a very long wait and the service can be rushed. Also, the... More

This was a very cute restaurant with a lot of personality. The food was good, the recommendations valued. The hostess remembered me when I left and commented to a discussion we had when I first walked in. This is always a nice touch. I'll definitely go back when I'm in Tyler. Wished I could have eaten more!!

Villa Montez has great food that ventures slightly away from the ordinary tex-mex fare while keeping your favorite dishes. The atmosphere is lovely and it is one of my favorite spots in Tyler.

A colleague and I stopped in for a bite at lunch time due to the great reviews. The setting is beautiful being in a renovated house on a hill. However, the place was empty on a Wednesday. I had the tortilla soup and the "360 bowl" which was not on the menu, but highly recommended by the waitress. The tortilla... More

When here with a group for lunch. The building itself is beautiful I don't know the history but looks like someone's mansion in the past. Dining room is very bright and comfortable. Started with chips and salsa and ordered the guacamole to share as an appetizer. Guacamole may have been the best I've ever had. Good-sized portion for four of... More

This is my go to restaurant in Tyler! When I want something amazing and delish it's Villa. I always get the Chino Latino rolls and the spinach and artichoke dip for an app then I get the Chicken milanesa and it's unreeeeeal! Highly recommended

The California chimichanga was outstanding! The seared carne asada was delicious if you like skirt steak. The appetizers are delicious, too. The latino rolls and the lettuce wraps are incredible. The drink were good too. The margarita was pretty fresh and tasty. This cuisine is not Tex Mex! It's a Latin American type cuisine so lots of tomatillo sauce and... More

Villa Montez is always a sure hit with our out-of-town guests. When our company's executives come into Tyler from Connecticut, Villa Montez is consistently at the top of their list. They are always impressed with Villa Montez's "Central American" food as Villa Montez calls it. This says a lot to me because our execs are constantly traveling on business and... More
