Found this gem on Father's Day. We were looking for fast, decent quality Mexican food with good Margaritas and Monterrey didn't disappoint. Indoor and outdoor seating is always a plus. An unassuming, hole in the wall (or strip mall) is always a good calling card...More

This restaurant was prepared for Cinco de mayo! When we arrived about 530p, there was a long line outside. In spite of that, we were seated quickly, served quickly, and our meals were delicious. Staff was very organized. Kudos!

Food was cheap and delicious! We are here for lunch. I got a chicken burrito, my husband got chicken enchiladas-both delicious. Their salsa is good too!

Good food, a lot for the price. Service is good, fast and friendly. Chips and salsa are ok. I wish they had a burrito in their Menu that was a plain burrito and not "bathed" in white cheese sauce. The options we had were satisfying.

Best fajitas. Great Salsa. Good price on kids meals that includes drinks. Really yummy queso too. Prices are very good for the quantity.

Your typical Americanized Mexican restaurant food is good but not anything different or outstanding. We had a party of nine and the waiter was a little flustered but it was okay but not a fabulous experience. Have been there before with smaller parties and had...More

We had a great late dinner here. The fiesta nachos were great! My friend's burritos del mar were also good. They served my husband chicken instead of beef in his chimichangas, but he enjoyed it.
