Monterrey: The best Mexican food in Chapel Hill


If great Mexican food, a fun atmosphere and friendly service are what you desire, look no further than Monterrey. 


Chapel Hill location: 1722 Fordham Blvd, Chapel Hill, NC 27514

Carrboro location: 104 NC 54 STE FF, Carrboro, NC 27510




The extensive menu and full bar offer everything you need to transport yourself to a sunny beach in Mexico, right here in Chapel Hill. Whether it’s a chorizo burger, the classic arroz con pollo, or any of their vegetarian combos, you can’t go wrong. 

And that’s why DTH readers have voted for Monterrey as the best Mexican restaurant in town.

Pro tip: You don’t want to miss their Cinco de Mayo celebration. An outdoor bull riding game and a serenading mariachi band are the perfect compliment to an ice-cold margarita pitcher.
