Busy and a bit hip and too many teles!!! Very fast and nice service. Lunch was good but my burrito was so small it should be called an enchilada. I didn't need the "american burrito " but too costly for what was served. I will be in search of a "real" mexican restaurant next time I am in Cayce &... More

The food here is pretty good. We have learned to bring our own hot sauce since they don't have it. Service could definitely be improved.

The food at Monterrey Mexican Restaurant is outstanding. I enjoy their cheese enchiladas. The sauce on the cheese enchiladas has a certain spice to it that makes it very delicious. The chips are wonderful. This is a great place to dine in or order food to go.

I've been eating here for many years. The food is consistently good as well as the service. My only complaint is not being able to call in my lunch order. The new location is smaller but so nice and clean.

This restaurant just moved and remodeled and is beautiful. The food is good and quick enough service for your lunch hour.

The food here is decent, if somewhat overpriced. The service leaves a bit to be desired. When eating in the restaurant, the servers were generally not very attentive. On top of that, they tended to carry the chips and salsa in such a way that the bottom of the chip bowl was dipped into the salsa. Obviously, doing this both... More

I went recently with a group of people on a business lunch because we only had an hour and figured mexican would be the fastest place so we could get back to our conference on time. The resturant is in a new location and looks great compared to its previous dwelling. The menu offered lots of choices as well. It... More

I used to visit the old location across Knox Abbot Drive. It was run down and dated, but the food was good. This location is exactly opposite - nice decor... pendant lighting, mosaic tile on the walls, and a granite counter at the front desk. Only one problem - they changed the food, and it stinks now. My basket of... More

My Mom & I went here this week. I told her it had been a great place years ago but I'd not been here in a long, long time. My Mom ordered a white wine. It was warm AND watered down. She asked if they'd exchange it for whatever they had cold. She was presented with a different wine but... More
