“Name change-Las Barricas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Great Mexican food, great staff, OK margaritas, good prices. A go-to place for a quick dinner. The menu is exhaustive and the guacamole is one to ask for.

“Factory Line Food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

Every plate tasted the same and the taco was very very very burnt and hard! Go somewhere else! Chips and salsa were good...place is really big and over-crowded...service was slow.

“Great Mexiacan cuisine at very good prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

Monte Alban offers a large selection of mexican entrees, that are well portion and very good tasting. I love their red sauce. The chicken soup is to die for.
