Reviews for Taqueria Monte Cristo

Monte Cristo is my go-to taqueria in Berkeley. My family has been eating here and getting takeout from Monte Cristo for many years! The people who work here are always so friendly and helpful, and my husband and I absolutely love the food, and my parents do too! The chips are to die for, and I highly recommend the tacos tradicionales with either carnitas or al pastor. I’ve tried most things on the menu, and everything is so delicious!!

First time ordering from here through GrubHub. I was a bit hesitant on ordering the guac as I thought it wouldn't look or taste fresh depending on how long it would be sitting out because of the logistics of it getting to me. I'm glad I ordered the guac because it tasted super fresh and is now in my top 5 best guacs i've had. The enchiladas were tasty as well, specially when I added the yummy guac on top it became so much better.

Was excited to try these guys but, right off the bat we were missing items.. ordered 7 tacos and got 5! Forgot our chips and salsa too! The cheese enchiladas looked half eaten! The sauce was very spicy too! The rice/ beans was all mixed together! It was leaking everywhere! The tacos were okay but, some of the chicken was overcooked badly! The best part was the chips and guacamole! Horrible experience! I doubt we will order again!
