This is a regular spot for us. Authentic Mexican food properly cooked and promptly served. Good food, pleasant wait staff, very reasonable prices, and Mexican beer. Nice décor and always a good start to the evening.

It took over 45 minutes to get our simple entrees. The taste was barely ok . Don’t come here unless you have time to burn and are not very hungry.

We definitely think Monte Alban has some of the best authentic Mexican food we've had here. The staff is very attentive and friendly, and we love the atmosphere. Always a great place to wind down, enjoy a good Marguerita and very delicious food!
