I sat at the "so called" bar for 10 min before someone actually acknowledged me. It was cluttered with papers and other items from the staff.

We have always enjoyed eating here. We have come to celebrate birthdays here and it is always fun. They put a huge sombrero on the birthday person and sing and bring a dessert and make it a fun time. Food good and plentiful.

Love this place! It may have just been my lucky menu choices, but everything I have ordered has definitely been freshly prepared. A nice change from the frozen and microwaved selections you get at so many Mexican restaurants. Service was attentive without being obtrusive.

We enjoy Monte Alban's. It's one that we choose quite often when in Hiawassee. We've enjoyed several of their items, and have not been disappointed.
