Great Mexican delighted food and great marqurittas, we pretty much order fajitas for one since there is so much to share with each other. Usually still end up taking home left overs for our omelette breakfast in the morning!..

We have been frequent visitors-since they opened. At least once or twice a month. The service is good and the portions are good. On the negative side , the last visit was on a Sunday around 6 and the chips were greasy and little chewy....I requested some more chips which were not much better. Normally they are light and crispy. This visit I didn’t order any meal with taco because last two visits the hard taco were chewy not crisp like they were old shells. One visit I did send them back. These were early visits where one would think food be fresher unless it was left over from lunch. Overall friendly service and good food except items noted.More

We eat at El Monte about every 4-6 weeks and have never been disappointed. My wife is not a fan of Mexican food but always finds something she can enjoy. Prices are a little higher than I like, but the quality of the food and...the service make it worthwhile.More

Most places have watery salsa and thin chips. This place has thick salsa and thicker chips, better for dipping. Enchilada supreme was great. Service was great. Good atmosphere and clean. I had a pork dish that was not good. The pork looked greenish and in...big squats chunks. Very tough like jerky. I had one piece and then ate the rice and beans. The standard margarita was good too.More

We mainly went to this restaurant because it was nearby our hotel and we didn't want to drive back to Huntsville since we had been there most of the day. We just wanted a quick dinner, nearby, that tasted reasonably good - nothing fancy. This...restaurant was fine in all those regards. It was exactly what I expected.More

We eat here pretty regularly. It is close to home, reasonably priced, and has great food. I recommend the 'Nachos al Carbon'. The flour chips are great.

Excellent guacamole. Taco was crispy. All food prepared well. It is a drive from the city but worth the trip.
