Mexican food that had no taste, a real shame. No attention to detail indifferent service. Not recommended to anyone who know Mexican food.

This place has a great atmosphere to it with very friendly staff. Our server was awesome and super attentive! (wish I could remember his name) I had the chimi and it was delicious! Beans and rice were good also. The chips and salsa tho are awesome! The prices are low and portions are large. Great dining experience. :)

A group of us needed a quick lunch stop and selected El Monte. It was a good choice, we had a variety of dishes among the group, everything was served hot and fresh. Very flavorful. Only downside is that the salsa lacked the kick I expect in Mexican restaurants.

Good place to eat. We really enjoy their Mambo Taxi, their sangria and margaritas are both delicious. Fajitas are not bad either. I have a favorite place so it's hard to compete.

Apparently we got here just in time! There was a line when we left and someone setting up a table for some time of entertainment maybe. It was on a Thursday night. Salsa and chips were very good. We both ordered the Pollo Feliz, chicken and rice, with cheese sauce. There was very little cheese and the chicken was dry.... More

We have been to El Monte numerous times and everything has been consistent. The service, the food, and the atmosphere are always great. We go as well as recommend others go. The prices are good and the serving are large.

Out of convenience my husband and I stop by for a quick bite, their food is reasonably priced but it is mediocre at best.

I have been going there with other co-workers for office lunch once in a while for a change.This restaurant has casual atmosphere, and always crowded during lunch hours. food used to be just average quality, possibly cheap price and good portion size attract crowd here,but I didn't enjoy neither food nor atmosphere here.

Staff very rude and steak was like eating an old tire. Over charged for 2 drinks charged 18.00 when it should have been 12.00. Would never eat there again. All food was also over priced......

I love this place, we eat there at least 2 times a week, food it terrific, margaritas and draft beer alway great. The service is super fast, they treat us like VIP's. I would eat there everyday if my husband would let me.
