This is a restaurant for older generations! My father gathers with his friends almost every morning for coffee or a mild breakfast. For myself it is not a place where I would like to take someone for dinner, perhaps a quick lunch once in a while, but that's it.

The Mexican restaurant chain Vips can be considered as a good compromise price- food quality. We had several dinners at Vips during our working stay in Monterrey with good result: typical Mexican food with some variation if compared to a Classic Mexican recipe; the slightly difference was apreciated.

The closest you will come to a comfort food. Good breakfasts and yummy soups. Relatively cheap and fast! Try the caldo de tlalpeno!

I arrived from the airport kind of late because of flight delays, and my parents and I were starving! We were looking for a place that was open and Vips was open and on the way, so we went! Great choice! Really good food, good service and free coffee refills. I went again a week later for breakfast and their... More

If you are looking where to go for breakfast or lunch, in a simple place, and you dont want to be ripped off by the bill, VIPS is your answer. Relaxed environment, good coffe, orange juice is real orange ( indeed it is). Menu is simple yet complete, very recomendable place.

I actually went to the VIPS in Monterrey Centro. The service was a tad bit slow but I wasn't in a rush. The food was good and the portions were more than enough. The great thing about this place ironically isn't the restaraunt, but it's location. This place is located in a shopping district known as Centro. There are plenty... More
