During a visit to Monterrey I had both lunch and dinner at the 2 locations of Las Monjitas. Great food, fast service and unbeatable prices. The waitresses dress as nuns and the decor of the restaurant is worth seeing.

We went in and seated ourselves, the waitress took ten minutes to ask what we wanted after we had to go and look for menus ourselves. The place was very dirty, tables uncleared, and we decided to leave.
