Affordable authentic Mexican food – I agree with the previous review. Tasty, authentic Mexican food at affordable prices. The place has very simple tables and chairs that easily allow the room to adapt to big groups. I'll admit I was intimidated to walk in to a menu on the wall only in Spanish. Before I could even say a word to my husband, a very friendly bilingual waitress came up to see if she could seat us or help us order to go. She was very helpful as we asked questions, since we had never been there. We ate there and felt welcome and comfortable. Three steak tacos, rice, and beans were 5.95. The tacos were a different style than is served around Indy, but the steak meat was nicely flavored. No problem using the Entertainment book coupon.
This restaurant is in a not impressive looking strip mall, but there are several things worth checking out. The little strip mall is about the closest block of businesses to the Northbrook Hilton and Radisson on Milwaukee Ave. I'd suggest a look in the Mexican bakery as well as Monica's.
Relaxed place for tasty authentic mexican food – I went with a group of 6 and we all got different things that we all enjoyed. They served some mexican soda in bottles that was very different from American soda, and that went down great as well. I had such a positive experience that i went back for lunch the next day with a group of 15 and we all loved it again...just threw some tables together and we were ready to go. Prices are as great as the food. While not a place to take a business client (atmosphere-wise), definitely a great place to go with friends. Can't wait to go again!
