The spaces are nice, clean, and well lit. The food options are endless and the taste is fantastic. Really authentic mexican cuisine. Do not hesitate in visiting.

Very impressive building, ample parking space. Open the doors and you hear live Mariachi. You pay at the entrance, an average of $15-17 dls, but you have probably 25 different dishes to taste. Food is ok, not THE best, but really good. You can order pop or flavour beverages. My favourite is Jamaica ( Sorrell water). Service is very good,... More

This excellent restaurant is located in a mall, with easy parking. The food is a la carte, and there are many local choices. Remember Monterrey is famous for meat (including goat) so make sure you order some. Desserts look good too.

I am a fan of Los Generales when in Monterrey; the food taste great and authentic; plus you will enjoy Mariachi music even if you don't pay for it as there is always somebody celebrating a BDay. My favorite dish Cabrito en salsa, of course!!

This buffet was recommended by a friend so we decided to give it a try. Personnel at the catering stations are not very friendly and the servers are too busy to really pay attention to you. The quality and taste of the food is average, nothing outstanding. For what you pay, you should be receiving a lot more.

I went to location on Jesus Cantu. I always eat too much at buffets. No exception here. It was easy. Did not taste anything that I did not think was good. Maybe the to-order tacos, they were a bit weak taste for me. Buffet items were nicely served, seemed fresh, great variety. Nice fresh fruit and ice cream for dessert.... More

We only ate there once. We would not go back. The buffet was large, lots of things, but all of a rather mediocre quality.

This is a buffet and one of the best in terms of food quality. One of my favorite things are the piping hot tortillas that are constantly coming off the grill. Good dessert bar also. It's all inclusive so $15 buys you a huge meal, dessert, and soft drinks. Good value for sure. I try to hit Los Generales each... More
