Excellent! Truly delicious food, really nice owners and staff, and good location. The restaurant is small but not tiny - maybe 6 tables? - and very clean and cheery. Brand new as of 2013, and still looking spotless. You can see the food being prepared while you wait. Service is reasonably quick considering the quality of food and small staff. The menu is varied and delicious. A couple of my favorites are the taquitos and the crispy potato tacos (the potato filling is fluffy and creamy and just so yummy.) The only downside to dining here is every time we go we order way more food than we can eat, both because we want to try everything and because the portions are generous. One thing to note, though, is if you're visiting Monterey over a weekend they are closed Friday evening and all-day Saturday, so plan accordingly because they are well worth visiting.
