My family and friends have been dining at the Monte Carlo Steakhouse in Albuquerque, New Mexico for years and have always had a good experience there with the delicious foods (ALL) and good service. If you want to pay high prices go to the fancy restaurants with all the fancy furnishings.. this is for a casual family home like dining experience which i prefer with my budget. Excellent steaks always done the way i like it or they do it right for you.
LOVE YOU MONTE CARLO!!! Thank you for being a down home place to eat!

Best Resturant in the Area

I was in Albuquerque, NM for a convention with my husband and two other co-workers. My husband had seen Monte Carlo's on Diners Drive-ins and Dives and so we thought we would try it out. While the resturant is not much to look at from the outside (which I think is part of the charm) the food inside is WONDERFUL, the service was GREAT and the atmosphere was TERRIFIC. The stake that I had was one of the best I have ever had - I would recommend this resturant to anyone in the area. The value is great and you can't ask for much more that that - food, service, atmosphere and value. Take my advice - VISIT THIS resturant - if it wasn't for the fact that I am from NC I would defintely visit often.

I could have chosen any place in Albuquerque to eat last week for my birthday. I love fine dining and atmosphere. I had heard so much about the Monte Carlo and wanted to try it. Decided to go for my birthday with a large group. The place is certainly interesting................almost like a Speakeasy minus the door and ""the goon."" My rib eye was one of the best I have ever eaten in a restaurant! (I used to work in Las Vegas, Nevada as a concierge and got comps to some of the best fine dining in the city.) The atmosphere is interesting (to say the least) but the steak was excellent. I suggest you try the Monet Carlo and the large rib eye! Can hardly wait to try a prime rib sandwich some Wednesday for lunch...........heard it is also a must do. I can still taste that melt in your mout steak!



Fantastic !!!!!!!!!!

I've been going to the Monte Carlo for many years now . For many years i've known how good this place is i just love it. But thanks to this show it shows what we in the south valley all ready know. Thanks for all the great service.

Fantastic food!

Besides the great food, we all thought it had great atmosphere and the wait staff were friendly and helpful. I would come back in a heartbeat!



You Will Like This Place

We went to this restaurant after seeing it featured on The Food Network "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" show. They rated very highly and I must say, it was one of the best steaks I have had in years. My wife tried some of the Greek food and loved it too. Remember, this place is in the back of a Liquor store, but don't let that stop you. Not much to look at, but great food at a very resonable price. You won't be disappointed.

My brother came from California. We had both seen the show on The Food Channel (""Dumpsters - Diners and Dives"" .... or a variation!) featuring the Monte Carlo and their steaks. This was a great opportunity to venture 25 miles for dinner - so off we went with out wives.

The Rib Eye was our choice. They list five or six ways steaks can be cooked. We all asked for RARE - which should be cool in the center. The 14 ounce steaks that came wer far beyond ""rare"", more like ""medium"" (nasty way to ruin meat!).

We all mentioned it to our waitress and she went to the cook to see what happened. A gent who never introduced himself came to the table and asked about ""the problem"". We relayed our disappointment and our definite dislike for ANY MEAT cook ""beyond rare"". He asked if we would be satisfied if we were only charged for TWO STEAKS. We all replied, ""no"" and explained we did not come in to get free meals in any quantity. He was not pleased and informed us that out of two-dozen customers that evening (August 6th 2008) we were the only ones to complain. We politely informed HIM it did not matter; and if we could not get the steak cooked as we asked, we would simply leave.

We stood to go and out of the blue another table with four folks motioned towards the waitress. They had a similiar complain - theirs were not cooked enough - they were - as you might guess 'rare"" and they had asked for ""medium"". The gent who offered us two free meals then said, ""oh we switched the orders"", so we will just switch them to the correct tables! in short - we all would get steaks which had been cut into and tasted by other individuals. ""What a way to run a restaurant"", exclaimed a lady at table number two!

In the end - we ALL LEFT and went elsewhere. The quality might not have been as good, but they were cooked PERFECTLY and were 4 ounces larger than at The Monte Carlo!

NEVER AGAIN WILL I DINE BEHIND A LIQUOR STORE! No matter which TV show features their cuisine!

Does not live up to expectations

We read the reviews before we went and even called the restaurant. I specifically asked if the beef served was ""prime"". Both the male who answered the phone and our waitress assured me it was. It was not. Under the best of circumstances it would have been considered a low grade of ""choice"". The portions were substantial but quantity does not make up for quality. The french fries were cooked with the temperature to low. As a result instead of have fries with a slightly crisp outside and tender inside we had potatoes that were essentially soaked in hot grease. All three of our meat dishes were served luke warm at best.

Our review will not affect their business it is a locals place. The wait staff is very friendly but that is not enough to have us return to see if we just caught them on a bad night. All in all an experience we do not care to repeat.
