We arrived at the Super 8 on Fremont Street quite late, and having been driving all day we needed a meal. Denny's was the easy option, but we were advised to try the Monterey Cookhouse - and I'm very pleased we did. The Brisket Dip was a fantastic starter. The pulled pork pizza was delicious. The pulled pork sliders were also great, and the chicken fried steak was great as well! Washed down with a pitcher of Big Sur Golden, we were all very happy to have tried this place. Highly recommended!

The food was certainly good, as long as you like BBQ. The service was very poor. I couldn't even get a refill for my iced tea and we waited a very long time to get our check. The place is cramped and the waiter obviously had way too many tables to attend.

We ate here twice and it was packed on both nights. It deserves its popularity. The staff annd management were friendly and attentive but not intrusive. We ate steaks on the first night and they were cooked just right. We tried the burgers the second time and they were also very good. The kitchen was open to view from the table and seemed clean and well run. Prices were very reasonable. I would recommend it very highly.
