The seasoned culinary crew at Monterrey Cantina prepares a sizzling spread of delicious Mexican dishes crowned with dollops of homemade salsa and guacamole. Delectable appetizers include a platter of freshly mashed guacamole and crisp corn chips or a Mexican Sampler, which showcases an array of quesadillas, jalapeño poppers, taquitos, and chili con queso as diverse as scientists' theories about who created the cotton gin. Forks exert dominance over a plate of monterrey enchiladas, which cradles one beef, one chicken, and one cheese enchilada crested with a triad of flavorful sauces. A colorful selection of fajitas nestles vegetables, steak, or shrimp snuggly in a bed of onions, bell peppers, and 700-thread-count tortillas, and diners can imbibe one of the eatery's house margaritas while lapping up cool breezes on the outdoor patio.

Sam Alvarado’s passion and respect for handcrafted Mexican food started at a young age. He grew up watching his family cook at home and in the kitchens of Detroit’s popular Mexican Fiesta restaurant chain, which his grandfather founded. Today, as the co-owner and head chef of Fuego Grill, Alvarado draws from that early culinary foundation to craft his own menu of fresh, made-from-scratch dishes that “more than impressed” a food writer for the Dearborn Free Press. He assembles traditional entrees such as carne asada, milanesa sandwiches, and fish tacos with halal meats and locally grown vegetables, creating cuisine that’s as flavorful and conscientious as a chocolate-covered Jiminy Cricket.
