Restaurant details
Reviewed April 15, 2012

This is the first restaurant I've eaten at in Chattanooga that serves authentic Mexican food. Other places are very bland and Americanized. The food is fantastic, always tastes fresh. Staff is always smiling and friendly, and food is ready very quickly. Love, love, love going here.

I had eaten at El Monteery about 3 times around 2006 right after they opened. Food was good then. I returned to that side of town a few weeks ago and was blown away at how good the enchilada suizas tasted.

The food was great and the beer was cold. If you like hot, fresh food and fun atmosphere try it. If you like alcohol the cantina is fun. Big enough for fun and small enough to feel warm and fuzzy.

Great food, fairly priced. Tons of items on the menu. Service is okay. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a fun margarita night, taco lunch or fajita dinner!
