Poorly trained staff, food was okay nothing to brag about. Service is standing in the way of whether the food was up to par. They need to regroup and start over.

We were traveling through and decided to stop here. The food did not taste good...salsa tasted like marinera sauce, taco shell tasted burnt, taco salad tasted like it had chocolate in it. Though the waiter was attentive the overall service of the place was very poor. Will definitely not be going back.

Always a pleasure when we go here to eat. Food is good, atmosphere is nice. Price is always good too. We eat here a good bit and it seems to get better each time.

Its always a friendly atmosphere and the food is always great. The service is wonderful. The prices are affordable. The desserts are good but the best one is the brownie with the ice cream on top. Its to die for. This is a must try if you havent been there before.

Monroe has many mexican resturants to choose from. I have tried 3 or 4. El chico's located by the movie theater and Cheddars was the best. Great salsa , I am picky about my salsa. The service was good fast and food good. Not to mention the the margaritas were not to bad either!

I was excited when i saw an El Chico in Monroe LA. It was my favorite place to eat when I was in college. The food wasn't bad, just was okay...a little bland i thought. Service was fine...I probably will look for other mexican food options next trip.

My waiter could not recommend the chilli relleno or avocado enchillada. I settled for the tortilla soup. It came as a shallow bowl with a lot of tortilla strips, a little chicken and a little avocado. It was served dry with a pitcher of tomato sauce on the side. Terrible! Also bad Sangria

Thank xcntryrider
