“Best mexican restaurant in East Tennessee!”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

I have been dining at Monterrey for several years now and have always received excellant service and outstanding food. I decided to write this review because I have recently dined at other mexican restaurants in surrounding cities and realized that these others don't hold a candle to Monterrey. The food at these other restaurants is nowhere near as good and the service is minimal compared to what you get at Monterrey. The employees are always so friendly and go out of their way to serve you. And as I said before, the food quality is just amazing! I have never been disappointed.

“Great Food and Service!”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

The people at this restaurant are always friendly and make you feel right at home. The laugh and joke and make your visit pleasant. The restaurant appears to be clean and the food is wonderful. It is hidden away in a shopping center right off of I-40, but is always busy to the locals.

Reviewed 8 April 2013

My family usually has Mexican food one time a week, so we visit Monterrey' frequently. Love the hot chips and cheese dip, as well as the chicken fajitas' (enough to feed two or more).

“If this is "Best" in Newport; then Newport Don't know Mexican”
Reviewed 25 January 2013

For Newport, Tennessee...this would be the best; but believe me it is not good. A true tamale does not taste like pure masa. Yesterday I ordered the 'Fish Tacos' which were GROSS. Smelt and tasted old and salty. I never had a fish taco that the fish was minced and just thrown on a tortillia. I asked for the side order of Tamales.....mistake !!!! Pure masa, hardly any meat and no taste.
Most people I talk to in the area like the fajitas. Just because you have fajitas dosen't make you a "Mexican" restaurant.
There is no true "Best" mexican restaurant in Newport, Tennessee !!!!!
