“Good Mexican at a fair price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Our family enjoys grabbing Mexican fare at Monterrey. They are reasonably priced with fast service and fresh food. When we need a quick Mexican "fix", Monterrey is often our choice!

“Good Meal & Drink”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

Stopped in pretty late and close to closing but they did not rush me out at all. Had a good combo with enchiladas, rice, beans...also free chips and salsa. Margarita was good but not the best I've had (its my drink of choice). Pleasant service, nice atmosphere and clean. Would eat here again when in WDM on business.

“Average as they come.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

I eat a LOT of Mexican food.
I've eaten Mexican food worldwide.

This was the most average and bland to date.

I don't use salt. I had to salt EVERYTHING BUT MY SODA.

Generous portions, clean establishment.

Boring food.

“If you are looking for good Mexican food in WDM this is your spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

Stopped in looking for good food at a fair price and received great food at excellent value. Staff is friendly, personable and fast. Don't be fooled by the high dollar stand alones thinking they will beat this little secret tucked away in a strip mall.

“Quick Mexican”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

One of the better places to grab some quick Mexican food. Came on a Saturday night at around 8 p.m. and the place was still really busy. Prices were reasonable and food quality was great. Everyone in our party of 7 was happy with their food and drinks. Will definitely return.
