The prices are reasonable and most staff work hard to serve lots of people quickly and with a bit of personality. It attracts the spectrum of truly local cultures, and lots of families, sports teams and good friends frequent this restaurant for green chile cheeseburgers, steaks, the best Greek salad dressing (I request extra), and other favorites. We prefer to... More

Fun, local experience, great food and great service. My brother, who lives in Albuquerque, thought it was the best green chili cheeseburger in town. I'd like to give a big thumbs up to Shiela, our waitress, for the great recommendations on food and drink that night.

We saw the reviews and decided to try the Monte Carlo. While the restaurant was packed and that seemed like a good sign, it was a a major let down. You had to seat yourself (this was dinner) and the waitresses were really slammed too. The restaurant is like a throw back to the 1960's and didn't feel super clean.... More

Based on our visit to this restaurant on a Saturday night, it looked like this place is well known among locals, especially for its steaks and green chile burgers. My husband enjoyed his steak, with plenty of leftovers thanks to its large size. The burger was great, and the green chile had a very nice bite to it - maybe... More

At here twice on this trip. This is the kind of place where the locals go. Not fancy, it is family friendly. Some of the best steaks I've ever eaten.

It's an old dark steakhouse. Great steaks and cold beer... but I am always on the hunt for New Mexico's best green chile cheeseburgers. This could be it.. Oh yeah...bacon makes it better! and totally worth running the construction gauntlet for the ART.

Overall, we were very happy. My husband had the prime rib cooked perfectly medium special w/ loaded baked potato. I had the ribeye cooked perfectly medium & loaded potato. Both of us enjoyed our meal. This was the best ribeye that I have had in a while. The side salad was the least appealing part of the meal. If was... More

We went to the restaurant based upon DDD. It is a very local place, nothing fancy. The food and drinks were very reasonable. I had a fabulous steak. The service was very efficient and friendly. It would be a regular on my list if I lived in the area.

Great, family owned steakhouse. The staff are super friendly and the food really good. Salad was fresh and crispy and dressing very tasty. Had fried mushrooms and onion rings as appetizer. Probably best ever had. Steaks good. Simple and not pretentious place. Home made Greek pastries are heavenly. Parking is around back. There is road construction on Central; be patient,... More

I group of us hungry barbarians went to this place because it was highly recommended by both locals and a TV show that goes by DDD. My meal was average at best. Par for the course for a steak house. My buddy had his order sent back two or three times because they couldn't get the temp on his steak... More
