4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

Just across the street from our motel, it was a great find. The staff were very nice, service was excellent, and the food authentic.

“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.

“Good basic Mexican served super fast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2010

Good standard mexican fare served very fast. We were trying to get to a movie just down the road and the waitstaff got us in and out in 30 minutes flat, even though they were quite busy. Food is acceptable for the whole family because it is not served very spicy--though they will turn up the heat if you ask for extra spice. Fresh guacamole, good enchiladas. The service was excellent, very attentive. Also very inexpensive--by far the cheapest restaurant meal we had on our recent mountain vacation! Vegetarian friendly.

“BE AWARE OF EXTRA CHARGES BEING ADDED TO YOUR BILL”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2010

With the Pancho Special, one receives two tortillas with the meal. Two tortillas will not come close to holding all the contents. For many years, I have eaten this meal and each time requested two extra tortillas. There has NEVER been an extra charge until today! I was charged for the two extra tortillas. The cashier refused to delete the extra charge and stated that the customer didn’t need to be aware of the charge prior to paying for the meal. I have paid for my last meal at THIS restaurant. ALL POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS SHOULD BE AWARE OF EXTRA CHARGES BEING ADDED TO YOUR BILL AS THE MONTE ALBAN WAITERS CHOOSE!
