The food was horrible!!! Their food had zero flavor. The chili verde was greasy water. The meat they used in their tacos, burritos and tamales was watery and tasted like they used old soured meat. We can not figure out how they stay in business.

Food is really good. We go every other week. I would go more often if I didn't worry about calories. Restaurant could use a face lift. It's falling apart.

This has been my families favorite Mexican restaurant since before I can remember. And we come here almost every week, still. The staff are wonderful and the food is amazing. Try the Chili Con Queso. You won't be sorry you did!!!

I got a chicken burrito and it tasted like it had just been reheated in the microwave. The chili is suppppeeerrr watery and it was more of a burrito soup.

They do simple food very, very well. This is not a place for fancy. It is a place for delicious! The owners are extremely friendly and genuine. The quality of the ingredients in the food is very high. For example, the ground beef is very lean. We have never been disappointed.

The absolutely worst green chile ever!!! Watery and runny! I could not eat my meal. Chile Rellenos were cold inside and soggy from the water chile. Terrible!!!! The salad plate my Mom ordered was good and nicely presented. Chili Verde not worth a trip there

Every time I'm in Arvada I go to the Monterrey House for one thing - their salad plate. Great guac and a queso crisp that I love. My sister and I have gone here for over 30 years and I don't think we'v e ever eaten anything else.

There is something there for my whole family to love. My two year old loves the guacamole and beans, I love the salad plate (guac and chips, taco, bean tostada and the chile con queso). I saw people complain that the smothered chili is soup like, it is, but it is good with big chunks of pork and onions.

We heard good thing about their Burritos. It was almost the only thing on the menu and I wish I`d gotten them. I was in the mood for beef enchiladas. When they were served they came in a healthy pool of bland broth. No idea what that was about. It made them soggy and a poor meal choice. The others... More
