Good Authentic Mexican Food! Loved their refried beans most of all. Also great chips and salsa. Good service, plenty of seating and very reasonably priced menu selections. We eat there every time we are in Franklin.

Great Mexican food, great staff, OK margaritas, good prices. A go-to place for a quick dinner. The menu is exhaustive and the guacamole is one to ask for.

Every plate tasted the same and the taco was very very very burnt and hard! Go somewhere else! Chips and salsa were good...place is really big and over-crowded...service was slow.

Monte Alban offers a large selection of mexican entrees, that are well portion and very good tasting. I love their red sauce. The chicken soup is to die for.
