This restaurant is in the same building as Jimbos was but has been revamped with a Mexican flair.
Parking is always a problem and will always will be.
The interior is cheery and has some amazing woodwork with booths and table having pictures carved in to the wood.
We were seated quickly and from there it went downhill.
I always go by the rule if no one stops to get our drink order in 5 minutes we leave. We were getting ready to go when our waitress showed up with chips and salsa and took our drink order.We just ordered water and a draft beer but it still took over 5 minutes to get our drinks.We saw our waitress tell another waitress our drink order but nothing happened. Finally a different waitress came by with our drinks,wandered around and finally gave us our drinks.
My wife is vegetarian and ordered taco salad with no meat. Her salad had two tomato pieces,a bunch of arugula and radicchio and nothing else.No dressing,no beans,no sour cream just lettuce. The taco salad was twelve dollars I think. I had carne asada and the steak was good but the rest had few spices that I could taste.
There were plenty of wait staff but it seemed disorganized. Waiter and waitresses standing around not knowing what to do or where to go.
I realize they haven't been open long but if things don't improve they wont be around for long.
It appears that Monarca's is run by Hispanics so was hoping things would have some spice in them and thats just not the case.
