Our first visit to this local favorite. We were cheerfully greeted by Chelsie, our wonderful and friendly server. She suggested the Vallarta lunch dish which had grilled chicken, grilled shrimp, grilled scallops, fresh broccoli, squash, and cauliflower covered in sauce and melted cheese. It also came with rice and refried beans. Wow! This is one of my new favorite Mexican... More

We went for lunch. Service was good and our food was very tasty. They had a large and varied kid's menu.

You should have the chicken soup, homemade and generous portion. Also stuffed chili rellenos are good, steak fajitas and the guacamole. Nice owners and good service.

We had a party of 8 and were seated right away. The menu selections were almost overwhelming there were so many choices. Some of their dishes included octopus that I had never seen before in a Mexican restaurant. Several of us order the shrimp quesadilla with spinach and white cheese sauce. It was outstanding. Everyone in our party enjoyed their... More

As rated - food is very good. Having lived in San Diego, CA for years, most places east of the Rockies have big shoes to fill. Wait staff friendly and efficient. Guacamole was excellent. Lunch size portion of steak fajitas was just right and delicious

We stopped here because of the reviews we read on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious and the service was good. We will eat here again if the group wants Mexican again before our vacation is over.

The food was good. I was especially impressed with the beef in the Changas as the flavor was different. I didn't see much on the menu that isn't in almost every Mexican restaurant. Good price for good food.

We were on our way to the see the Christmas lights at the fair grounds, and decided to give Monte Alban a try. We are so glad that we did. The mole and tamales were excellent, and I also tried the andreas chicken (with cheese sauce). We were expecting a wait on a Saturday night- but we were immediately greeted... More
