Our disappointment began when no one would seat us as we entered. It was like we were invisible. The service was the same, no water, no check, had to track down the waitress. When I asked to see the Mgr. He did not know any mexican dishes, or what green chili was?? HUH?. Horrible!!! The food was no better. Canned chicken the the enchiladas!! Spend your money at Walmart buying frozen....same product 90% cheaper.

Our disappointment began when no one would seat us as we entered. It was like we were invisible. The margarita was the WORST I have ever had. They had to bring me 6 lime wedges so make it drinkable. Horrible!!! The food was no better. Canned chicken the the enchiladas. Stale corn in the tortillas. Now I have a bad stomach ache. The only reason I gave it 2 points was because once we were seated, the service was good. They won't last much longer so don't waste your time. Worst mexican food ever!!!!!

We have been to all 3 locations of Monte Alban's and (while they are all good) find that the Penfield one is the best. Great food, wonderful servers de espanol and good pricing all in a very nice atmosphere. Will definitely go again and again.

Our favorite dish here is the sizzling fajita, and normally when we've ordered it the spices are fantastic. This most recent visit left us with a meh feeling. Not sure if the cook had an off day, but the spices, and hence, the flavor, were lacking. We'll try again.
