I've attended this establishment countless times over the years, and had equally countless good times here. The overall quality of the restaurant has decreased, however, and I would no longer recommend eating here.
Nowadays, in contrast to the past, the bartenders uniformly pour weak drinks. The breakfast is weak. The straw that broke my back and has caused me to stop going here happened the other day: I ordered a plain burger which arrived with mayonnaise. I gave it back to the server, and when it was returned to me, it was apparent that she had simply scraped off as much of the mayonnaise as she could. I dont know if this is standard restaurant practice, but Im sorry, Im a little classier than that. What if I were allergic to the offending sauce?
I got a refund and wont be back, at least for a while.
Pros: a monroe classic, bottomless fries
Cons: often crowded, weak drinks
