This long time hole in the wall offers nothing in the scope of aesthetics. The booths, carpet, chairs, everything really, is way past its prime. The place is also cash only,... but, how about that, there's an ATM machine right when you walk in the door ($3 service fee). Ugh. The food is pretty solid. Pasta comes swimming in their... More

Good pizza in a place that time has forgotten about - located under a railroad bridge for the B&M railroad close to the great Lynn Fluff Factory and yummy pizza - bring the wife and kids or the mistress and friends it's all good... What happens at Monte's stays at Monte's

Stepped back in time when I used to go here for pizza on the way to the Surf for movie night! Pizza is small, thin crust, toppings are plentiful. House salad is small but did the trick. Soft rolls were delicious. Boneless fried chicken sandwich was ok. Fries were hot. Booths were clean, servers pleasant. Prices are excellent. Will be... More

Be aware before you head there to bring in cash it is a cash-only business they do have an ATM charges $3 to take out money I find it very hard to understand why that is a cash-only business after being open for so many years you would think that they wouldn't be that cheap and get a debit or...

Especially if you are a baby boomer or greater. Best thin crust pizza on the North Shore. Small family dining room and friendly neighborhood bar. Nothing fancy. Homemade Italian salad dressing is full of fresh garlic. Yummm.

Went there for the thin crust pizza and it did not disappoint. Not in this area much and had to try again. Pizza 1/2 pepperoni 1/2 garlic was very good. Saw from the menu that some raved about the house salad dressing which some use for dipping sauce. We asked for a sample and tried it. Not something I would... More

The pizza which they are known for has deteriorated over the years. As a matter of fact our pizza tasted like it was 50 years old and soggy. We never ate anything else there over the years. We will never go back

I started going here 50 years ago! Not much has changed . We visited here on last trip and the pizza is the same as when I was a kid. Something about a Montes pizza makes them special - a cross between a chain restaurant and a family restaurant is the only way to discribe them "different". Everything else is... More
