If your looking for good drinks that are not lacking in alcohol this is the place! But, if you are wanting good food to go with those drinks, forget it. I've tried the food several times ordering different items off the menu. The latest, their lunch special of chicken enchiladas; there was no cheese of any kind, hmm ok I... More

At first, I didn't know exactly which door to go through to get to the main dining area. When you enter the courtyard, you have to go straight to the back and enter that door, not the immediate one to your left. The one to the left is for the bar if you want to get a few drinks. Overall,... More

The view and ambiance on the deck were lovely, but our drinks came out wrong and the food was ... pedestrian at best. It was disappointing. I wouldn't bother going back with the other options in the area.

Love this restaurant. The setting is gorgeous next to the river. Try the cucumber margarita out of this world, and the street corn. If you are around this beautiful town, you should visit, El Monumento.

In Texas, Mexican food is everywhere. What impressed us with El Monumento was that it seemed to be Mexican food with a slightly healthy slant. I wouldn't call it health food, but I didn't feel like I got a weeks worth of fat in one meal. Very tasty, and a really nice place, inside and out. If the weather is... More

My wife and I made arrangments to meet some close friends for dinner at El Monumento. We had never been there and after looking at Trip Advisor we had our doubts how this was going to turn out as there were some good reviews and some not so good reviews. Upon arrival the first thing we observed is the parking... More

Not impressed, El Mon. We hadn't been in quite awhile, so when we had a friend in town last Sunday afternoon, we thought this'd be a great place to take the family. After checking the hours, we saw that El Mon was open at 3 on Sunday afternoons. We walked in and the restaurant appeared to be closed. Someone came... More

Pretty outdoor bar. Had the jalapeno watermelon margarita- very good and unique. The menu had been shortened since last time and the cheap paper was a poor choice. I had the fried chicken tacos which were very good. We ordered queso which was super tiny portion so we needed 2 for our table. Restaurant was good. Nice view outside if... More

We have been here awhile back but were not impressed..we thought we would try again. This time, the Chips and salsas were free!! The roasted salsa was our favorite. We shared an appetizer, the friend jalapeno and artichoke basket. We rarely eat anything fired but my husband loved the fried jalapenos..me, the artichokes. We also shared the Mixed Fajita's plate!... More
