Just went for lunch today, a Sunday. Unlike the East Ridge road incarnation, this restaurant and its crew are simply phoning in their performance. Front of house service is indifferent at best, back of house served me my meal cold - TWICE...once when I ordered it, and the second time after I sent it back. I don't know if the... More

Me my wife and another couple decided to come here for drinks and appetizers. The other couple was looking forward to frozen margaritas. As it was around 7:15 PM on a Friday night we expected to wait at the bar and start off with drinks. It was a busy restaurant that night as expected. We ordered 4 margaritas but it... More

I have been to all three of there locations over the years and it's always the same. Food is good but if you get a lunch item you won't find much meat in your burrito. Lots of peppers and onions but that's about it. Chips/salsa is great and service is very good. I have ordered from the dinner menu and... More

I love Monte Alban in Irondequoit on East Ridge Rd. Not so much the location in Webster, NY. The original one has a nice atmosphere, very casual, good lunch prices, great chips. Salsa can be very spicy sometimes though, must depend on who makes it, at least you know it is freshly made! They do change extra for sour cream... More

After reading the reviews here, I and the family were excited to go to this restaurant. Perhaps because I am originally from Texas, my expectations are quite high. The evening started with free salsa and chips. The chips were great, but the salsa was average.. It was runny and really did not have a great deal of flavor. I ordered... More

I have been here at least 20 times between the Webster Location and the new Penfield location. It has just enough of a Tex Mex flare to make the food interesting while still retaining the real Mexican qualities. For those that like spicy food, try the Habenero Menu.

Good food at good prices, this one is located on Empire Blvd. in Webster. Service was fine, and menu selection had nice selection. Atmosphere was fast food, sometimes music too loud. Unlimited chips and salsa. Nice place for family and food.

Stopped in for lunch on Tuesday. This place has an extensive menu and very good food. The atmosphere is reminiscent of fast food establishments, but service was very good.
