“This review is overdue. I stopped by on Saturday, 12-31-22. I was leaving Target & wanted dinner from a new spot to end the year.I picked a good time to go as they were not very busy. I ordered the shrimp hot with all the seasonings. I also added a side of hush puppies; they were ok but I probably wouldn't order them again.I spoke to who I believe was the owner while waiting for my order. We talked about the sister restaurant on Independence in Charlotte. If I'm hungry while in Monroe, I'd stop by again.”

Hilton Vineyard at The Vines 3310 Crow Rd, Monroe Wine Bar • $$
3310 Crow Rd, Monroe

“This is a small family owned and run vineyard. Their facility is very large, rustic and is beautiful inside and out. There are chairs and tables on a huge outdoor deck with fire pits they light on cool nights. There's a rear covered deck, a large covered front porch and the grounds are mesmerizing to see. Inside there's a wine tasting bar that rivals many vineyards three times the size. I've visited dozens of times and never tasted a wine that wasn't amazing. Their wine by the glass or the bottle are so reasonable that you'll want to take some home and the quaint logo and design on their wine bottles are made by family members. Family runs everything and are very helpful and accommodating. There are enough tables and chairs to support a very large crowd with a big dance floor. Of course, there are very clean rest rooms. Check their schedule online as they always have live bands, DJs, Elvis impersonators or karaoke going on. A beautiful, friendly place to visit and have some fun. The family will make you feel right at home. A must go to if you live in the area or are visiting.”

The food is very good, the service is very good and the ambience is a clean with plenty of seating.My drink was very refreshing and not overly sweet. The tacos were delicious, not greasy and very generously served with the usual salsa verde, Pico de Gallo lime and jalapeño slices.Absolutely recommend if looking for an authentic taqueria experience.”

The mixed drinks, especially their strawberry mojito, are on point! I haven't found anything wrong with this location. The staff is super nice. The restaurant is always clean. There is sometimes a short wait, but they'll get you in quickly as possible. They have live music on certain nights. They will sing a happy birthday song. It's an all-around great restaurant.”

Johnny Tomatoes 5250 Old Charlotte Hwy # A, Monroe Pizza • $$
5250 Old Charlotte Hwy # A, Monroe

“Wanted to try this highly recommended pizza place to see if it was up to the hype or just local to where people live so that’s where they go… It was a 7/10 for us. Staff was friendly. Parking was ample. Pizza was definitely better than any franchise place but not in the top 5 pizza restaurants for me in the Charlotte area. We love pizza and realize everyone has their preferred style. We like a thin crust, hearty sauce, with a high quality cheese and toppings. There are so many different pepperonis but this one just wasn’t fantastic. Garlic knots were very tough. We tried a bacon and a pepperoni pizza but if you prefer other toppings I’d recommend you try them. If you’re considering a local franchise delivery place you’ll be very pleased with this option. For self proclaimed pizza connoisseurs, this was solid but just not my favorite.”

Tortilleria los paisanos 1404 Skyway Dr suite b, Monroe Mexican • $$
1404 Skyway Dr suite b, Monroe

“Tucked away in the far corner opposite Compare Food in the Monroe Shopping Plaza you will find Paisanos. And what a neat little find it is, too! Take out only with a buffet I ordered a simple beef taco to go. While their usual order is more substantial, they politely made my taco, wrapped it up, and charged me a meager $3. Yum, I'm on my way! Might I suggest checking them out for carnitas by the pound, handmade tortillas by the dozen, and shrimp or tamales from the buffet. Top off your order with something sweet from the shelves or freezers in the middle of the store, too. Has the taste buds on my "give 'em a whirl" meter begging for more. Go here!”

I like that it is a family owned business and not a chain restaurant.Parking: At a quiet time, there is plenty of parking, but on a Saturday night, it can be tricky since it is right behind a chain Mexican restaurant.”
