“Dont try the beef”
Review of HC de Monterrey

HC de Monterrey
Ranked #208 of 411 Restaurants in Cozumel
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed 19 June 2014

This restaurant is on Calle Sur 1 it is the road that goes next with Benito Juarez.
I tried the New York steak(tough and chewy) ,the Arrachera(mushy and pre tenderized) and finally chicken which was tender,wonderful and not tenderized with bakingsoda(which can make the meat mushy.
Another thing that i saw was that the locals was getting better pieces than the tourists.I saw clearly that the texture was far more greater and quality was several notches.An mexican told me that a local that spread the word about quality can either bring down or up a restaurante.Therefore they get the best of the house.While a Tourist ain´t that important since it doesnt get out in the Community.Such a shame!!

It is hard to find this butcher shop located away from the main drag. We keep coming back to this very simple place for mixed grill every time we are on Cozumel. It is fresh and tasty.

Plain restaurant with limited menu but the arrachera (flank steak) is exceptional (if other reviewers can know of better meat restaurants in Playa please advise their name). Confirm price per head was under USD20 per person including drink, beer and dessert p.s. even their teired "3 leche" cake looked standard but was excellent.

HC de Monterrey specializes in arrachera. They do it well, but in my opinion there are better places for this on the island.

Arrachera is a relatively new specialty, basically fancy (beef) fajitas. This restaurant does it just fine and they have some nice sides such as a whole grilled onion.

Several locals had recommended the place so a group of six of us went around 7:00 PM. Some were hesitant to go in as there was nobody else at the restaurant. After having checked that they took credit cards (we were low on cash), we were seated indoors where the air conditioning was welcome on this hot and sticky night. We shared some guacamole and quesadilas as starters and ordered from a nice variety of cuts of beef. The meat was tender and cooked to perfection. The sides were limited and pretty basic but the fries were great. Service was very friendly and attentive. Another large group arrived half way through our meal and ate outdoors. It isn't easy to find good beef in Cozumel but this place is at the top. It's a little off the beaten track on 5th avenue between 7th and 9th on the left hand side (just before the cemetery). The bill including starters and beers came to $40 per couple. Enjoy!
