This is a steakhouse that you wouldn't think about maybe for breakfast, but they serve a wonderful Desayuno. I ordered bacon and eggs with bean and tacos and the amount of food was huge. I didn't finish, but it was quite tasty. They of course...More

This place has always had the best hand made tortillas... This time the service was good, ribeye and arracheras was just OK. Queso flameado was very good as well as the refried beans with "veneno" (extra fat!). The best was the Trevinada dessert, a Queso...More

I've been traveling to Monterrey for over 20 years. El Mirador is always consistently excellent. One of my favorites. Centrally located to downtown or Garza Garcia. The steaks are excellent and the service is second to none. You cannot go wrong. Enjoy!
