First time in Lubbock and was craving good mex food....more tex-mex than anything. Service was excellent, considering you place your order at the counter. The servers are very attentive and keep the chips and salsa coming. Salsa is good and spicy, and not watered down. The carne guisada is the best with big chunks of beef. So good, we went back twice during our 3 day stay. The only tricky part is the tipping of the servers, since you pay before you even get your food or service....so take some cash.

It is a small place, been in the same location for years & is a family run business. The food is really good & easy on the wallet.

Best Mexican food in Lubbock along with Arrandas Taqueria on 34th st. They rock. Great salsa, favors, enchiladas, everything. You can't go wrong here!

This small, unpretentious restaurant serves the best Mexican food in Lubbock. The cheese on all the dishes is wonderful as is the salsa. No other restaurant can touch Montelongo's molè. Homemade tamales and barbacoa are mouth watering. Yes, their are Angols that enjoy this restaurant, but the line-up of Hispanics before or after church on Sunday says how good this Mexican food is. Very reasonably price and excellent service.

A little over priced for what you get but it is authentic texmex. The enchiladas are very good but the chips are really too thick for my taste. There are better less expensive texmex places in town.
