Rigo’s Restaurant in Monrovia – Great Tasting Mexican Food

 

By Bill Coburn

 

Rigo’s Mexican Food opened in 1986 on Huntington Drive in Monrovia, and in 1999, owner Primitiva Serrano moved the store to its current location at the corner of Foothill Blvd. and Mayflower, also in Monrovia.  Business was good, so when the location next door became available, she decided to expand, adding a much larger dining room and greatly expanded seating; with plenty of room for large parties.  In April, 2003, Rigo’s added a liquor license, allowing them to offer margaritas to complement your meal.

 

Rigo’s offers its breakfast menu all day long, lunch specials Monday thru Friday from 11am to 3pm, and a full dinner menu.  There is also a kid’s menu, special senior plates ($4.95 - $5.95) for 65 and over from 8:30am – 3pm, and a full catering menu.  For those looking for the traditional Mexican dish Menudo, it is available at Rigo’s on Saturday and Sundays.

 

I have eaten at Rigo’s on several occasions, and have always found everything to be quite enjoyable.  I especially remember once having ordered the Camarones a la Diabla, which consists of shrimp sauteed in a spicy salsa, and being impressed not only with how good it tasted, but with how much shrimp there was in the meal. 

 

Last night, the family stopped by for dinner.  I decided to start things off with Rigo’s special Cadillac Margarita, and was glad to see they put the Gran Marnier in a shot glass on the side.  I’ve been to places that charge a Cadillac price for their margarita, and then give you a Yugo’s worth of Gran Marnier, just floating a little on the top.  No worries at Rigo’s, you get the full shot,  with the bonus that you can determine how much to use, since the sweetness of the Gran Marnier can definitely effect the margarita’s taste.

 

For dinner, I ordered a chicken enchilada and a shredded beef taco combination dinner (with rice and beans).  Keelan ordered the shredded beef flautas, and Katie had a chicken tostada.  They were kind enough to accommodate us by making my taco with no tomatoes (I’ve never been a big fan of tomatoes), and after Keelan asked if there were peppers and onions in the beef in the flautas, and Katie asked if her chicken was just plain chicken or if there were other things cooked in with it, our server was very nice and offered to have the chef make the flautas without the peppers and onions usually cooked into their shredded beef, and Katie’s tostada was also made with plain chicken.  Actually, it appeared that instead of using the shredded chicken that usually comes on the tostada, they actually used charbroiled chicken breast and shredded it up like the shredded chicken.  So they were definitely very accommodating.  All the food was delicious.  The Mexican rice was light and fluffy, the enchilada was filled with lots of white meat chicken, and the red sauce was tasty.  The taco had a nice crisp, freshly fried tortilla, and plenty of well-seasoned meat, cheese and lettuce.  I added some of Rigo’s homemade salsa, which was definitely packing some heat.  In fact, Katie and Keelan both mentioned that the house pico de gallo salsa, served with the hot homemade tortilla chips, was a little on the hot side, too.

 

Keelan’s flautas were plentiful, with lots of shredded beef in each one, and the flour tortilla fried just right.  The tostada was piled high with chicken, fresh crisp lettuce, cheese, guacamole and sour cream.  Rigo’s offered us good food, good cocktails, and good service, and I’ll be going back again. You’ll find Rigo’s complete menu online at www.rigosmonrovia.com
