The menu said the rib eye steak sandwich was tried by Guy, so it seemed like a winner winner chicken dinner! All that happened was they shut the front door on quality and taste. My first bite was full of fat and gristle, so much...More

Back in the day - and I'm talking the late 70's - 80's, Monte Carlo Steak House used to be THE place for fine dining in the South Valley. Sadly, they have not kept up the pace. I ate there because it's close to my...More

The ribeye was so tender, and cooked to perfection. I ordered the 10 Oz with salad and baked potato. Our server, Sheila, was very friendly and helpful. We will return next time we're in town!

If you're tired of high-priced steakhouses that don't come with any sides, then you will love Monte Carlo Steakhouse. It's casual, noisy, decorated with things that are obviously dear to the owner. Despite it being a busy Saturday night during the Balloon Fiesta, we didn't...More
