The wait staff at Monterrey seems to be on a run -- hustling to get orders taken and then deliver the food -- hot! Prices are fair but not cheap. Great variety on the menu.

$5.95 lunch Fajitas on Tuesdays are great. Quick service if you arrive before 1230pm. If you can sit outside, service is faster and more pleasant during the fall and summer months.

Stopped in for a quick, early dinner and got the burrito. Decent eats, but nothing to really write home about. I've heard they have great margaritas but it wasn't where we were having beverages that night. Queso was good and they give you the option of having jalapenos or not.

I have been going to this location for many years. I like this place A LOT for lunch. They have daily lunch platter specials for $3.95, $4.95, and $5.95 (which works out to be $1 off their normal lunch menu prices). Service is friendly and fast. I can't say that this is the best Mexican food in Atlanta; however, it... More

The place is an embodiment of an average Mexican restaurant in US (assuming you are not in Arizona) - fairly cheap, large portions, reasonable quality, and average tasting food. The guacamole appetizer was probably the best dish, the rest was fairly bland. The service, however, was very attentive and friendly.

We stopped here on the way back to the hotel due to the convenient location. My meal of chalupas was fine (or I have no taste buds) while the wife found hers a little weird. Sweet and minty not what you expect in enchiladas.

Has a nice outdoor covered patio that is popular. The inside is large but not much atmosphere. Very popular with families and teams of kids. Service is fast and efficient but not elegant in any way, shape, or form. Food is good, predictable, hearty portion, and the margaritas are, too. Parking can be tricky, but people and go quickly.

I've never been to a "southern" Mexican restaurant. This one is good. Not like Arizona, but we loved it. We will eat here again.

Monterrey is like Cheers for Mexican food. It's where everybody knows your name and the food is consistently delicious and speedy. Our 15 year old son sticks with the traditional taco, beans/rice. The rest of us have a few favorite dishes including the best grilled chicken chipotle I've ever had. I crave it! The patio is wonderful and the staff... More
