We go to this Restaurant every time we’re in Chapel Hill. Able to be seated quickly. Good and speedy service. We’ve tried many menu options and they are all tasty.

We had lunch here in a group of three. It was my first time and we found the menu full of a very wide variety of Mexican food choices. What caught our eye were the lunch specials for $6.00. These turned out to be a...More

I stopped in at Monterrey and was happily surprised by the pleasant ambiance of the seating area, friendly staff and good food. Monterrey is popular and the reasonably-priced menu is quite varied, but my order still came out quickly. I'll be back soon!

Delicious and plentiful Mexican food and nice and cold drinks. Price is reasonable. I can understand this place is full of students and families on weekends. Everyone looks so relax and happy. 地元の人、特に学生さんでにぎわっているのもわかります。おいしくて量が多くて値段も手ごろ。気のはらないカジュアルな雰囲気もいいです。持ち帰りも人気。

This restaurant was prepared for Cinco de mayo! When we arrived about 530p, there was a long line outside. In spite of that, we were seated quickly, served quickly, and our meals were delicious. Staff was very organized. Kudos!

Food was cheap and delicious! We are here for lunch. I got a chicken burrito, my husband got chicken enchiladas-both delicious. Their salsa is good too!
