Went there for the thin crust pizza and it did not disappoint. Not in this area much and had to try again. Pizza 1/2 pepperoni 1/2 garlic was very good. Saw from the menu that some raved about the house salad dressing which some use for dipping sauce. We asked for a sample and tried it. Not something I would... More

The pizza which they are known for has deteriorated over the years. As a matter of fact our pizza tasted like it was 50 years old and soggy. We never ate anything else there over the years. We will never go back

I started going here 50 years ago! Not much has changed . We visited here on last trip and the pizza is the same as when I was a kid.

Nothing fancy here but they are always busy. A great local place. If you love thin crust pizza in a bar type atmosphere you should try Montes. I have had the chix parmesean and my hubby the fried seafood. Both were good. Love their homemade salad dressing.

Monte's has been around for years. Small place so need to get there early if you don't want to wait in line although the food is worth the wait. Great variety of food to choose from. Have never had a bad meal here.
