I have reviewed Monte Alban before, and have complimented the restaurant for its warm and welcoming staff and the quality of the food. This time I would like to share what I observed several months ago at the Irondequoit location. There was a woman seated in the booth in front of me. She was not happy with her meal--I'm not... More

There are three locations of this restaurant in the Rochester, NY area but this one in Irondequoit is the best. We have isited the Webster location but it does not compare. We love their lunch speicals, most come with rice and beans. Their rice is spiced just right and delicious. You are served chips and salsa first and they will... More

Stopped by with my 9 yr old kids for lunch. Meal prices were reasonable and the portion sizes generous. My son ordered a soft shell taco and ground beef burrito. This kid loves Mexican so when he said Mommy this is the best taco ever I was surprised! I ordered a beef burrito and stuffed chili poblano pepper...it was outstanding.... More

My first few times dining at Monte Alban was at the Irondequoit location. Thankfully they have three locations, one is right in my neighborhood. I love the Penfield location because the restaurant is bright, spacious and still has the new restaurant feel in the best way. I've had dinner with friends here, as well as solo trips to dine at...

We went here for lunch last week and our food was very good. Chips/salsa was great as always. We found that our food had plenty of meat in it and had a good flavor. Our server was excellent and had no complaints. Not very busy at lunch time, will definitely be back again.

When I asked to see the Mgr. He did not know any mexican dishes, or what green chili was?? HUH?. Horrible!!! The food was no better. Canned... More

Our disappointment began when no one would seat us as we entered. It was like we were invisible. The margarita was the WORST I have ever had. They had to bring me 6 lime wedges so make it drinkable.
