We have been here numerous times and enjoy the staff and the food. If you are looking for american-mexican, this is a good place.

The food at Mesa was very good with big portions. It is where Monterrey Cantina used to be, but much better. Nice outdoor seating My husband and I shared the fajitas and still could not finish - lots of meat.

This is closed and sold to new owner. It will be replaced with a new Mexican restaurant called Mesa. Hopefully the food will be better than the old place.

We usually go here for lunch as your food arrives soon after you place your order. The warm chips and individual salsa is also a nice touch. Odd as it sounds, there soft drinks are very syrupy and delicious.

We made a last minute decision to stop into Monterrey on a random weekday. The drink specials were great, but the food was just OKAY. We live less than a mile from Monterrey, we will give the food a second chance.

In the mood for Mexican food? Monterrey Cantina is the place. Starting from the complimentary chips and salsa that you're tempted to fill up on before your meal arrives to the delicious tamales, flautas, Mexican pizza, tostadas, tacos or fajitas you ordered, it's easy to...More
