Good Mexican Food

This restaurant provides a standard American Mexican bill of fare that is nicely prepared. In addition, it has some unusual burritos and seafood dishes. The chicken tortilla soup is excellent. The atmosphere is casual and the wait staff is always pleasant and helpful. I have been here several... read more

I used to eat here all the time when I was in college but hadn’t eaten there in a few years. It wasn’t horrible by any means but it just wasn’t as good as it use to be. The salsa was a huge disappointment that was always one of my favorite things that this restaurant was that they had great... More

But since the reviews were good, we went for dinner. The food was great, the service attentive. The only disappointment was that they were out of bananas for the Fried Banana dessert! Didn't disappoint. Quesadillas were large for the price, and other portions were generous too.

I visited here today with my family for lunch. The restaurant doesn't look very delightful from the outside, but on the inside it was very clean and nice. The food comes in large portions, but not enough to where you can share with another person. Their lunch specials are very good! Their costumer service is also on point!! Shirt and... More

Some of the best Mexican food I've had. Very diverse menu; never been disappointed. Good service. When we look at each other and ask "where do you want to eat," "Monte Alban" is always one of the suggestions.

When we go to Hiawassee, we always see this place busy. So, we decided to try it out. The salsa is bland( tastes liked canned tomatoes and no spices), the chips were hard and thick. We ordered the beef tacos and there may have been a tablespoon of meat in each one. Not impressed with food, but service was great.

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
