I had read about this place being an inexpensive dinner with Tex Mex fare. We came here for dinner one night and that’s exactly what we found. We ordered nachos with cheese as an appetizer and I think we got something reminiscent of melted cheese whiz. For our mains, I had the pork burrito while my wife had the chicken... More

A quaint little place literally filled with memorabilia from the owners extensive travels around the world. We visited twice during our visit to Cuenca both times we had good service and the food was excellent. We had burritos and burasso both of which were delicious, piping hot and plentiful. Prices were also very reasonable both times we paid around $20... More

I panned this place in 2014, and didn't return until a friend strongly recommended it last week. We went... and were surprised by how tasty the food was and low the prices were. Returned again tonight with the same experience. Tasty and cheap. I feel cheated that I waited this long to try it again, when I live so close... More

The enviroment is pretty chill, nice music in the background, not to crowded, and awesome decorations. Service was quick, it didnt take more than 15 min to get our food and drinks. My mexican meal has a nice taste, my girlfriends dish was average. Still nice place to chill with frinds and couples.

We were looking for places to go out for dinner and it was so hard to find one as most places were closed or were so busy. This staff and the manager restaurant were fast setting up tables for my 10 friends. The waiter was a bit slow but hopefully the manager was open to make changes in our drinks... More

I am so confused. This looks like a hip, fun, funky place from the outside, so we gave it a try, as opposed to going to a more known haunt, Chiplote's across the street. We were (not) greeted by a man who was in some sort of a cashier's cage. Soon a young many came up, and handed us two... More

Very few places near our rental were open Sunday nights so we stopped into Monday Blue. We were pleasantly surprised by good food. We had a pizza - deeper crust than we've had elsewhere in Ecuador- and the vegetarian and chicken enchiladas. All were good and prices very cheap.

We went here 7 times during our 2 week stay! Why? CHEAP, fast, friendly and the shear EASE of it! Looking through some reviews, lots of people have reported the food to be pretty bad. Well, it's not fine dining and it's not covered in oil or deep fried, nor was it drenched in salt... so yeah, it's more on... More
