Our first visit and we were not disappointed. I had three items: a pork Picadita, a lengua taco, and a pork tamale. All were excellent. My wife had a plain cheese quesadilla, also good. Definitely warrants a return visit, probably for dinner. Service was very...More

We were so happy we found this restaurant. After spending time in Oaxaca which is known for its excellent moles and mezcals and is near impossible to find mediocre food, we really missed it. We had a chicken mole and a plate of tacos, also...More

We just made our second visit to Monte Alban. I liked it the first time enough to try again, and this time I'm sold on it as my go-to place in Astoria for Mexican food. It's not the ordinary chain-store recipes. They have a variety...More
