Really liked it here. The staff was really nice and the food was good and priced really well. Apparently you can smoke in this place as we were asked "smoking or non smoking'. Neither of us smoke so it was really nice to enjoy our meal with no smoky smell coming from the smoking side.

I eat here once a week. Great location and the chipotle tacos are superior! It is nice on the menu that you can build your own combination plates of 2 or more items! The red sauce is tasty and the cheese enchiladas always satisfy!

We like the homey feel of the Monterrey's Little Mexico. The food is consistently good and fresh. Their chips and salsa is a favorite and we will continue to eat here when in town.

This place is infamous for poor service. We typically have 6-8 people at a table and we never get the The correct order. But the food is pretty good and we like going here once in a while. Inside could use a renovation...

Loved the chimichangas and the queso dip! The place was pretty busy (we were there for dinner) and it was a bit loud, but we had a corner booth so we had some privacy and could carry on a conversation without having to raise our voices.

We are semi-regular diners here and enjoyed another dinner today. We see they have not messed with the recipe of the Charo Beans. Both of us had the Monterey Dinner and loved it. Yes, the service was pretty fast, food hot and fresh and our waiter was fantastic. My wife and I always like dining here because of the calm... More

Have gone to this place for years. Great service and tasty tex-mex. Generous portions and it is popular with the locals but have never had a wait to get in.
