We went to dinner with our family here. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious. We went to see the Mariachi band and were not disappointed. They are great! My parents go to Lubbock about 4 times a year and make a point to visit this restaurant each time. Generous portions of food. If you're... More

How this place could get anything short of five stars is beyond me. The food was so fresh, hot and tasty. We always, always look for local original Mexican food on road trips and we hit the jackpot! But be warned ... It is BYOB. I can't say enough about the service .. Better than almost anywhere we've been ...... More

The cheese enchiladas and salsa are amazing!!! The salsa is hot but very very good. If you find yourself on the Clovis Highway in Lubbock and want some great Mexican food, I recommend Montelongo's.

I ordered the beef enchiladas and they were the best I have ever had and my husband ordered the brisket tacos and he said they were great as well and filled him up.

We have began a tradition of stopping here every time. Really good, great service, authentic food. First time was skeptical because one would think its a hole in the wall, but it's legit. Definetly have to go.. Enchilada great, barbacoa, and tacos, all good. Two thumbs up.

Just after landing at the Lubbock Airport, we stopped here for dinner. Food was OK but nothing exceptional. Service was good, I would put it one step above fast food.

I don't see what all the good reviews are about. Maybe I just picked the wrong dish and everyone else picked the right one. First off the service is a big different. You go in and order and pay then get your tickets and get seated. We waited about 30 minutes for our food to come out. I ordered the... More

Wife and I came here a couple Saturdays ago for dinner after reading a few good reviews. We walked in and weren't quite sure of the procedure. Turns out you're supposed to order at the front counter, pay, and then sit down and wait for them to bring you your food. We briefly snacked on complementary chips (greasy) and hot... More

I couldn't quite believe the reviews that said there were actually huge chunks of fat in the barbacoa. Shame on me. The wife's enchiladas were good, however. The hot sauce is HOT!
