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!

We ate at a few restaurants in Albuquerque, and by far, the best steak was at Monte Carlo. They were full of flavor, tender, and the servings were generous. It is attached to a liquor store, so you can buy your wine in their store...More

Don't let the look fool you!!! It does look like a dive and it is in a bit of a bad neighborhood but the food is worth it. You walk through a liquor store to get to the restaurant but the journey is worth it...More

One of the best cheeseburgers in Albuquerque, with excellent french fries that are worth busting a diet for. Had a steak here once for dinner and it was OK but I prefer the Monte Carlo--with all its unpretentious charm--as a lunchtime experience.
