Now it is time to take a trip to Mexico. My latest venture was to a great Mexican restaurant called Monte Alban, which has two locations in Rochester. One is in the town of Irondequoit and the other is in Webster. All I can say is “Authentic”. I have learned to branch out and start trying different foods that I don’t usually eat, but this place is awesome and very well priced. The prices are very affordable, ranging anywhere from $6 to $21.
I have never been to Mexico, but I feel like I’m there when I eat at this restaurant. They have a lot of pictures and Mexican decorations throughout the restaurant. The Mexican music playing in the background gives you the feel of being in Mexico.
On the appetizer menu, there are some fun choices. You can choose: Nacho Supreme, Beef & Beans, Cheese & Bean Dip, soups, and my favorite Laredos Fries (a bed of french fries, topped w/ ground beef, cheese and pico de gallo). On the menu for salads are Fajita Taco Salad and Ensalada de Pollo Salad (tender grilled chicken served on a bed of fresh lettuce w/ shredded cheese, onions, bell peppers and tomato).
For dinner, I have two favorites: Chicken and Steak Fajitas and the Ribeye Steak. My friends like eating enchiladas, taco, burritos, and quesadillas. A great way to try all of these items is to go for the Combination meals, which comes with a variety of choice (only cost $7.99). There menu also includes a section for vegetarians, which consist of 6 combo meals like Spinach Quesadillas, Guacamole Salad, Bean Burritos, Cheese Poblano Peppers and more. You can’t forget about the kids. They have items on the menu for kids 12 & under with fun stuff like Beef Tacos & Burritos, Chicken Fingers, Hot Dogs, Corn Dogs & Fries.
Monte Albans is a place that the whole family would like. There is something for everyone. Everyone I have taken here has loved it. I can eat here over and over and never get tired of the food. Now go and check it out, I promise you will love it too.
