Good standard mexican fare served very fast. We were trying to get to a movie just down the road and the waitstaff got us in and out in 30 minutes flat, even though they were quite busy. Food is acceptable for the whole family because it is not served very spicy--though they will turn up the heat if you ask for extra spice. Fresh guacamole, good enchiladas. The service was excellent, very attentive. Also very inexpensive--by far the cheapest restaurant meal we had on our recent mountain vacation! Vegetarian friendly.

With the Pancho Special, one receives two tortillas with the meal. Two tortillas will not come close to holding all the contents. For many years, I have eaten this meal and each time requested two extra tortillas. There has NEVER been an extra charge until today! I was charged for the two extra tortillas. The cashier refused to delete the extra charge and stated that the customer didn’t need to be aware of the charge prior to paying for the meal. I have paid for my last meal at THIS restaurant. ALL POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS SHOULD BE AWARE OF EXTRA CHARGES BEING ADDED TO YOUR BILL AS THE MONTE ALBAN WAITERS CHOOSE!

Franklin has little to offer in the way of Mexican but this place packs them in despite the commercially produced food it serves... Busy as hell but for what? I don't get it! If the chips & salsa is an indication- I should have seen it coming... thick and canned tasting. Lousy in every way but the atmosphere.. I don't eat out for that alone! Try La Cabana in Clatyon, Ga about twenty minutes away but worth the trip for Mexican.
