We were a bit skeptical about this place at first. It looks a little uninviting, it's dark inside, the open view kitchen is a bit unsightly and we felt the service was rushed. However I gave this restaurant 5 out of 5 purely because of the food. We both had chicken fajitas and they were absolutely delicious. The salsa they served with the complimentary tacos was really good too. We both had margaritas; my partner had a house margarita and I had one made with agave. We agreed that the house margarita wasn't that good but mine (with agave) was excellent.

We traveled here as part of our journey from Napa down the PCH to SD. The food was incredible and we were looking for authentic Mexicsn food. The margaritas were also great! Our waiter, Edgar, was super friendly and accommodating. Wish we stayed in Monterey an extra night...we would have gone back!!!

Sent by our hotel who said people had been saying good things about Lopez .... two thumbs down! Restaurant was loud and chaotic, the open view kitchen didn't add positively to the ambiance (rather it caused some concern), the margaritas were awful - and the food was just not tasty. Out of five of us - no one took more than a few bites and sips!!!!

Stopped by here during our recent spring break. The service was a bit slow, but very friendly and a throwback to service in the the 1960's.

The food was excellent with homemade tortilla's. The kids enjoyed watching from our booth someone in the kitchen hand chiles rellenos. Very Generous portions. Excellent salsa and chips.

We had some drinks with dinner and the sangria was rather substandard, but I guess that is what you get for not getting Sangria at a Tapas Bar and getting it from a mexican restaurant. Otherwise it was a fine and satisfying meal.

I'm a tough rater, so my "3" is not meant as anything bad. If I could rate on a scale of 10, I'd give a 6 or 7. The food was perfectly fine, but not remarkable. The staff was very friendly, which always counts for a lot. Nobody would be disappointed in the dining experience here.
