Been here 3-4 times during a two month relocation stay in area, also visited most of the other Mexican restaurants within 2-3 miles. Monterrey has a similar feel and food quality is the others although I agree with another reviewer that their salsa is below par. For warmer weather their outdoor patio looks fun.

So the salsa was simply pureed tomatoes. The chili relleno was horrible - tiny, and drowning in cheese so I couldn't taste anything but cheese. The rice and beans were dry. The meat taco was filled with ground meat that was tasteless. Wait staff were not friendly at all.
On a positive note, the UNCC student with us didn't seem to notice any of these issues. Ahhh, to be young again!

My wife and I had an early Saturday dinner with our UNCC son. Upon arrival we were promptly seated and the traditional chips and salsa were served to the table. Salsa was seasoned, but nothing to set it apart from other Mexican restaurants, such as some fresh cilantro. I selected the burrito and taco (crispy) combination served with refried rice and beans. Food was served hot and was tasty, but again, nothing special to make me want to return.

With the many Mexican restaurants, I'd like to see some effort put into fresh ingredients, sauces and tastes, Don't look for it at Monterrey.

Monterrey's is the go-to spot for Mexican in the UNC Charlotte university area. It's good food with decent prices. The staff are always nice and they have a patio for when it's nice out. It's a good restaurant, but nothing stands out about it.
