TRY this restaurant!! It get's 5 stars in customer service where so many other restaurants seem to fail. They serve you knowing that you will come back if you have a good experience. Margaritas are amazing and the food is delish! Highly recommend!

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,...More
