I'm am in love with this restaurant. The fajitas were outstanding and the enchilada had real authentic mole sauce on top. If you like corn tortillas, they are amazing. I practically licked my plate clean. The best part is that the bill was only $20 for 2 people and we didn't eat anything cheap.

We chose this place based on all the rave reviews, but frankly it just wasn't good. The service was great, and very friendly, but the food was not at all what we anticipated, which is such a shame as I was really hoping to be able to rave about this one.

The guac. is so fresh and creamy. Our server, Gilberto was great and excited that we were trying their food for the first time. The menu had lots of options, even specials served only on weekends.

From the road, Monterrey's may not look like much but it is the only restaurant I ate enough that at I maybe could have been considered a regular. My husband and I have had a hard time finding a place in our new city that beats this place. The food here is cheap and most of the dishes were tried... More

This was the worse experience I have ever had at a mexican restaurant. And it was not only us, but the table next to us too. The hostess didn't know where to seat us, then once we were seated it took 30 mins. to get a waiter to get our drink order, then we sat there another 20 mins waiting... More

For Cinco de Mayo I thought there would have been a Mariachi Group but they had a crazy singer singing everything but Mexican Music. Strange?? The place was packed but service was excellent & the food was hot, plentiful & delicious.

had a lunch here - I had cheese burrito it was very nice. I also enjoyed the chips and salsa. The prices a fair and the service is great. This is the type of place which has a loyal following of locals - and a diverse group. If you are in the area stop in.
