Good place to eat. We really enjoy their Mambo Taxi, their sangria and margaritas are both delicious. Fajitas are not bad either. I have a favorite place so it's hard to compete.

Apparently we got here just in time! There was a line when we left and someone setting up a table for some time of entertainment maybe. It was on a Thursday night. Salsa and chips were very good. We both ordered the Pollo Feliz, chicken and rice, with cheese sauce. There was very little cheese and the chicken was dry.... More

We have been to El Monte numerous times and everything has been consistent. The service, the food, and the atmosphere are always great. We go as well as recommend others go. The prices are good and the serving are large.

Out of convenience my husband and I stop by for a quick bite, their food is reasonably priced but it is mediocre at best.

I have been going there with other co-workers for office lunch once in a while for a change.This restaurant has casual atmosphere, and always crowded during lunch hours. food used to be just average quality, possibly cheap price and good portion size attract crowd here,but I didn't enjoy neither food nor atmosphere here.

Staff very rude and steak was like eating an old tire. Over charged for 2 drinks charged 18.00 when it should have been 12.00. Would never eat there again. All food was also over priced......

I love this place, we eat there at least 2 times a week, food it terrific, margaritas and draft beer alway great. The service is super fast, they treat us like VIP's. I would eat there everyday if my husband would let me.

Very good service and very good food. The enchiladas are not as good as El Palacio but I have yet to find any as good any where. El Monte has quite menu including lunch specials.

We eat here every once in a while since it's the closest Mexican restaurant to our home. The food is pretty good and the atmosphere is nice. It isn't cheesy or messy. They have began to go up on price however, and it's getting to the point that it will be worth the drive to go elsewhere. They have trivia... More

This is a good restaurant for what Huntsville, AL has to offer, which isnt much on mexican food. This is the most authentic I have run across so far here. The prices were very reasonable, and the chicken enchilladas were the BEST I EVER HAD in Alabama by far. Worth the drive, its good. Very fast service and the food... More
