Went in for lunch on a weekend and were seated quickly. Chips and salsa were brought to the table even before we ordered our drinks. Food was hot and fresh, and service was excellent. We eat at this location almost weekly.

my wife and I went in for an early dinner and were very impressed with the fajitas with shrimp, steak and chicken. The service was very friendly and fun; very attentive. The flan was great!

We are from Oklahoma but now live in North Carolina where it is tough to find good Tex Mex. we always eat here when we visit. The food is good and, coming from NC, super cheap. Our group had cheese enchiladas, chicken enchiladas, and a chimichanga. Main dishes and salsa were excellent. Beans and rice were okay. It's definitely worth... More

Eat here often. Pretty good tex mex food. I like the steak and cheese enchiladas with cheese sauce. The burritos and tacos are good also. Decent salsa. Good wait staff.

The service is good, not exceptional. The prices are very reasonable for the quantity of food received. The menu selection is typical Tex-Mex, which is not a slam. The food is not impressive...meaning that the taste is quite ordinary and uninspired. I may be wrong, but I'm willing to bet that the food is heated in a microwave before serving.... More

We enjoyed a good meal of varied Mexican dishes. Having experienced a lot of Mexican cuisine in the U.S. and in Mexico, we would consider the offerings to be very good in most cases. Sometimes the food could be warmer/hotter when served, but staff is quick to correct any problems. Service was generally prompt and attentive. The Sopapillos were less... More

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant. But here lately I have been getting the Mexican hamburger. Oh my gosh! I'm in love! Big juicy burger with melted cheese and jalapeños on this sweet home made bun. I can only eat half so I take the other half home with me. They come with French fries. You have to try their... More

I have eaten at Monterey's in Bartlesville many times and it is always good. The spinach enchiladas are really good as is the Cancun chicken. The kids really like it as well.

The food is almost always very good. Like everywhere else their prices are a little on the high side but it's okay for a couple of times a month. I suggest going during lunch for their specials.Smaller portions so be forewarned. Larger portions in evenings but also more $$. I don't drink so I can't comment on their liquors or... More
