Very good Mex, Tex Mex.

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... read 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!

You can't beat the guacamole here so just go ahead and order it as soon as you sit down. Motorcycle trip through the mountains left us hungry and this place delivered. The Mole was authentic and was as good as I've had in a long time. Worth a visit.

Very good food that is consistent. Usually good service as well. Good prices, varied menu, and something for everyone. Can't go wrong here. Try the soup or pepita.

We were surprised to find pretty good Tex-Mex at this remote location. The veggie fajita was good as was the black bean salad.

Haven't been to Monte Alban in a while because we became discouraged about the quality and variety of their menu. Just returned recently to try my favorite, the chicken soup. Sometimes it's too hot, sometimes the chicken is too done, but this time it was delicious as it used to be. The vegetables (peppers, onions), were chunkier (yum, yum), and... More

This is part of a chain that covers northern Georgia. They offer an extensive menu of Mexican and TexMex plates in a good clean environment. The service is fast and friendly and the food is tasty and well prepared. Their chicken soup is huge and is guaranteed to cure a cold in hours.

Food was great and good variety but it is a dry county and the margaritas are made with wine so that's a no go for me. It's good for lunch if you don't want a Rita.
