Well i have to say that I hope they fix whatever problems they are having. We have gone to this location several times over the last year or so and everything seems to be getting worse. The Hostess greeted us and sat us right away. Our server came over and she did not smile or great us, she asked us if we were ready to order. We asked for another minute, which turned into 8 minutes (timed) before she ever came back). We placed our order and received our food as ordered. Food runner was awesome, the food was not!!! The burritos that we ordered where so empty that they almost fell flat on the plate. My wife ordered the Chile Rellenos, it looked like it could have come out a frozen case at a grocery store. It was cold, runny, covered in enough sauce that could have served our entire table. My wife ate the rice and beans off the plate hoping that we would see our server, well we did not see her again until the whole family was done eating. We told her about the Rellenos and she could not have cared less, did not offer to get us a recook, replacement or anything at all. She had it taken off our bill but only partial and presented me with the check, we were still charged for the rice and beans. No offer to speak to the manager, no offer for a complementary dessert, nothing. We own a restaurant and when we have a chance to come out we are very forgiving for mistakes, but piss poor service, low quality food is NEVER acceptable. We will not be returning.

Went here on a fairly busy Friday night. There was a bit of a wait to get seated but because we were a couple, we got seated outside rather quickly. We would have eaten separately at the bar too if that had been an option since our hunger outweighed our need to be comfortable.

Side note: There was a party with eleventy hundred people dining outside with several small children running rampant, slamming the gate, moving chairs and playing hide n go seek which took away from the joy of the meal. (Parents, if you're going to take your rugrats out, please keep an eye on them or keep them on a leash. TYIA). Fortunately our table was off to the side so it didn't bother us (much).

The server took our drink order promptly and our food order quickly after that. The food arrived quickly and was extremely tasty. I normally order one of the combo plates but this time I went for their Tres Mariachis dish. Wow! Plenty of food and a reasonable price. In fact all their food is reasonably priced and the plentiful free chips and salsa ensure that you will not leave hungry.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone but next time we might wait for an inside table as the flies took quite a liking to our food. In addition to shooing rambunctious children away from our table, there was a lot of shooing of flies away from our plates while eating.

The bill for two came to about $40 with soft drinks and tip.

My husband and I were craving Mexican but being new to the area we weren’t sure where to go. We found Monterrey Mexican on Trip Adviser. :). It was fabulous. We split the fajita quesadilla with beef and chicken. The beef had such a good flavor!! We shared a small frozen margarita and wanted seconds. Highly recommend.
