Dined with a group, the food was okay, but the noise level was not conducive to real conversation

Average Tex-Mex, at best. Good live entertainment and nightly specials.

Food is pretty good, but don't plan on having a serious conversation while you eat. The noise level is pretty high from the band and most of the tables are big parties celebrating. As long as you are prepared for that it is a pretty plesant experience.

I used to love the Greene Pasta, and ordered it every time, but it has gotten a bit bland, so now I try the more traditional Tex-mex items, like chicken enchiladas. On Tuesdays, entrees are half price, so you can't lose-- go. On Sunday night, the salsa band is hot, so why not have fun dancing? This is a fun place to have your birthday if you like leading a conga line and getting a free shot of tequila. Fun since 1992.

Tried Monica's for the first time lastweek and really liked it. Heard great thing from friends about this place and saw it featured on the Travel Channel and thought I'd give it a go.
The menu is sizeable and has so much to choose from. I chose the Mexican lasagna and it was fabulous. The $3 margaritas are great too. When I went it was during lunch time and it was quite busy but even so that did not stop me from getting very good service. Ruby, I think her name was is an excellent waitress.
I would definately recommend Monica's if you're in Deep Ellum area or just want a choice of good Tex-Mex food.
