Every single dish my group of 8 got they enjoyed. The atmosphere was nice but it was freezing in there. The waiter was friendly and got all of our orders correct and came back twice to fill the drinks. The helpings were very good sized. The kids portions were very large. My grandson got chicken nachos and they were awesome and he is a picky eater. They were piled high with tons of chicken and cheese. He even brought his leftovers back to the hotel. So it was a winner for us all!

We love Monterey in Carrboro and wanted to try this location since it was closer. Wish we’d gone to the other. This new location is huge and had the feel of a dining hall rather than an enjoyable restaurant setting. It was busy but we were seated within a very short time. The first thing I noticed was the noise. The acoustics are so terrible in there that it is incredibly loud. We had to yell at each other all through dinner just to be heard. Very unpleasant experience. The food just didn’t seem up to par- rather unflavorable. I got a taco salad and it was unusually small. The shell looked like it was a kids size. Got out order mixed up and tried to give us someone else’s food initially.
If you want a more pleasant setting and a better tasting meal, drive the extra distance to the carrboro location.

Good food and prices at a new location (1-month-old) in Ram's Plaza. Don't be duped and go to the old location like I did.
