We have frequented Monterrey for twenty years. For the last year or so I have been very disappointed in the service and will not be going back. I was there about a month ago during the off peak time. There were plenty of waiters hanging around but I waited 15 minutes and no one approached my table, even though they had to have noticed me. There were few customers other than myself. I finally got up and left and mentioned to the hostess that I could not get any service, so I went somewhere else. Similar scenario has happened several other times but it's the first time I actually left due to no service. I felt invisible and that no one cared. We have been very loyal customers, sometimes dining there three times a week. No more. ,
My family and I have eaten here for many years and they have always had good food, reasonable prices, and fast service.
You could go to Buford Hwy for the more authentic, hard-core Mexican food, but for basic North- Americanized Mexican food, you can't go wrong here! I'm craving cheese dip and a Tecate with lime just thinking about it.
Tip: If you have room after your meal, treat yourself to some sopapillas for dessert. Yum!
We have eaten at this restaurant and found it reasonable and a good value. However our last experienced blew it all away. We had ordered an extra chicken burrito to go with our meal, and, on the first bite, my wife found a fly that had *very* obviously been cooked in the burrito. The manager didn't even apologize and when pressed a little (after we had payed for the food to make it clear we were not after free food), he would only say that there a flies outside (we were eating on the patio), and, this is *after* he is the one who had come to our table and seen the fly and how obviously it had been cooked... Not an appropriate response.... We used to like this place, but, we will not be eating here again...

Visited Moneterrey for the first time a few weeks ago. The parking lot is always full so we decided to give it a try. The food was great. Tasty and the shrimp quesadilla was packed with shrimp - which I consider a good measuring stick for if a restaurant is chintzing you. The other combos were ginormous - often coming on two plates. The atmosphere is casual, unassuming and family friendly. It's not a fancy place but for what it's offering, it delivers and more.

My singles class at church used to come here for lunch about once a month and it was a popular spot. We usually had 12-15 people in our group. Everyone seems to enjoy the food. I especially loved their chicken and cheese enchilada platter. Most of the platters include rice and beens. Most plates aare pretty inexpensive but very tasty. Lunch specials, too.

The other reviewers are telling the truth. We eat here often and have always had prompt service. Even on the busiest nights, they somehow get our food out to us amazingly fast. A testament to the dedicated staff, as opposed to the high-turnover college student staff you find at many other places. It's a family friendly environment, good prices, GREAT food. I highly recommend the shredded chicken taco salad if you want the most tender chicken you've ever tasted and a healthy portion of delicious guac.
