“No loco with el mono.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Monoloco is a two story bar/restaurant. The first floor is just a bar and is taken over by gringos and europeans, the second floor is a restaurant with a small bar where some locals and guatemalans from the big city hang out.
Downstairs, if you speak spanish you won`t fit ( bartenders won`t understand you! ) upstairs, unless you sit down at a table you won`t fit in the small bar even though you will be better treated by the guys who are locals and speak spanish.
Monoloco is a foreigner`s oriented place, where the locals go to feel like one.

“it was the best of times, it was the end of times”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

As a Canadian I could get drunk, have five different discussions (politics, art,history,music,religion) and still be able to convince the bartender to find a hockey game.
Yes, this is a bar that attracts people who quickly put their hand to their heart, but it is also a bar that attracts people who lead with their heart. The bar is as small or large as you want to make it.

“Big Nachos, yes but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Huge. Ordered the beef and chicken nachos. 6 of us dug in but after the first 'fool the eye' layer of meat it was all chips and fixin's [ ie cheese/salsa/sour cream/ avocado etc]. Yummy, just not much meat.

“Nachos Bigger then Your Head”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

A large restaurant bar with many TV's for sports filled with locals and foreigners. Service is friendly and fast. The highlight is the giant plate of nachos that can easily feed 6 people. If you are looking for a fun atmosphere and great nachos, then bring many friends and visit this place.
