A bunch of us (12) sat around a cluster of tables and had a great meal. A very energetic and pleasant waitress took our drink and food orders and was super helpful. I got the fish tacos which were delicious. The rice and beans were...More

Food was great, service good, value excellent. It feels like a family-run restaurant complete with dad overseeing everything going on. If you are looking for ambiance, or a romantic get away, this probably isn't the right place. But if it's great food you want don't...More

My wife and I went here to experience authentic southwest cuisine. We have better Mexican food back home in Mt. Vernon, Ohio. There are so many great trip adviser reviews about this place that we went here. I recommend some other place when in town.More

This place was recommended to us by a local while we were visiting Albuquerque, and we liked it so well we went three times during our visit! Really tasty New Mexican food (many vegan/vegetarian options), and a lovely, helpful waitstaff.

Didn't get a good recommendation for a local (non-chain) spot from the hotel, so we sort of stumbled on Monroe's on our way to old town Albuquerque. Glad we did! First clue was a fairly full parking lot at early dinner time. (And overflowing when...More

Had the Indian Taco with carnitas and green Chiles with avocado which was an enormous portion and was seasoned well with excellent flavors. Friendly service with more than fair prices and a good desert flan make this locals place a real winner.
