My husband works out by the St. George Regional Airport. He invited me to join him for lunch at Tacos El Monchis, a wonderful, sort of “hole-in-the-wall,” authentic Mexican Food restaurant. It is located in a Sinclair Gas Station, on River Road in St. George, Utah.
Tacos El Monchis is located at about 3849 River Road. The place is very plain, but I thought the food was excellent. (Try to avoid lunchtime if possible because they are packed). I heard that they are known for their "on fire" green sauce, but I didn't have a chance to try it. They have a simple menu, but it includes everything I would order. They have tacos, quesadillas, burritos and combination plates. Each day they have a special on tostadas for $2.99 and on a certain "special of the day taco" for only $1. The special $1 taco days are:
Monday – Shredded Pork
Tuesday – Marinated Pork
Wednesday – Chicken
Thursday – Pork Skin
Friday – Sausage and Potato
Saturday – Shredded Pork or Chicken
I tried a chicken taco while I was there, along with a cheese quesadilla. Both were delicious. I would truly recommend the cheese quesadilla though.
Hours for Tacos El Monchis:
Monday - Friday: 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
Saturday: 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
If you are out south on River Road anytime soon, you should stop by Tacos El Monchis and try one of their delicious entrees.
