In for a Quick Lunch

We were just passing by this well known restaurant. I think there are three in the area and billboards all over. We were very pleased with everything. The beer was cold, the service quick and friendly and the food was very, very good. It was also very reasonably priced. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

We always count on Monte Alban for a consistently good Mexican meal. Topped off with a large draft Dos Equis Amber they deliver good food at a very reasonable price. Service is good. We eat there virtually every trip to Hiawassee.

My wife and I tried this restaurant during a recent three day visit to Hiawassee. We weren't terribly hungry so we ordered simple plates. She got a vegie quesadilla and I got a chicken quesadilla. First of all the chips were greasy, we ate very few of them. My food was actually pretty good, the guacamole that came with my... More

Service was fine, salsa was good. Main course was blahh.....just so so. Our group of four was asked to rate their meal 1-10 and all agreed, food never made it over a 5 in any of the four different plates....

Good quality mexican food which was extremly good in price! Few beers, 2 meals were just over $25. We went before 6 but you could see it was a locals favourite Staff were extremely friendly, and ensured you were always out first. Id return if I went back to Hiawassee

Really good authentic Mexican Food. Good service with a smile. Their salsa is probably the best I've had - obviously home made!

This place has some of the best Mexican food I've eaten - we always stop here if we're in the north Georgia mountains! They have some interesting specialties, but the best part is that everything is just really good - well cooked, well (and not over) seasoned, fresh--just good. Even their tortilla chips are good, light, not too salty, and... More

Having just visited Cancun last month, my expectations for Mexican food in the states is not that high. Oh my, this one far exceeded my expectations! Many choices, great variety, and excellent meal. The flan... Oh gracias!

I am not a big fan of Mexican food, but my husband is so we have tried all the Mexican restaurants in this area. This is hands down the favorite for him and I like it too. He is not a Mole fan but he likes the Seafood combo. I usually miss salads in a Mexican restaurant, but fortunately Monte... More
