“Best Mexican place in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Monterey is the best Mexican restaurant in the area. You have to get the jumbo Texas margarita.

They also make fresh guacamole at your table if you are into that type of thing.

“Good Mexican Food in Southern Maryland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Having vacationed extensively in the Mayan peninsula and island region of Mexico I was pleasantly surprised with the authenticity of the Mexican food at Monterey Restaurant in southern Maryland. I first tested their Mole Sauce and was impressed.

“Needs to improve”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Needs more spices in the Taco meat. Spices are bland, kitchen needs help with getting back to Mexican recipes and not just cooking something for locals. Remodeling was nice. Staff is excellent.

“Great lunch Fajitas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Friendly fast service, a lot of food, and there salsa and cream dip with tortillas is awesome. The lunch fajitas are pretty lunch and filling. Only downside is once you eat all that food it's hard to go back to work with such a full belly. Yum!

“You must eat here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Our daughter and son in law took us to dinner at Montereys and after hearing for over a year how great the food is I was not let down. Unbelievable. Lobster enchiladas and shrimp enchiladas super fair prices an last but not least great service. Wont miss eating here next time we visit.
