Best Mexican Restaurant Period. We visit here quite often and have never had a bad meal. We have had Mexican food many places including Mexico and Texas, Montezuma's is still the best.

Montezuma's is a great place to get good Mexican food and fast, friendly service. They have a mariachi band come in nearly each month and they are very talented and a lot of fun. I get here several times a year and wish I could get there much more often.

I had shrimp tacos that were very good flavor. This place likes their cilantro! Not the best salsa I've ever had and there was nothing special about the chips. Other diner had a burrito which was huge and good.

Love this place! Excellent Mexican food. I go here as often as I can. The food is fesh and tasty. Everyone is helpful and the verity is somewhat overwhelming at least for me! It is authentic Mexican and you can practice your Spanish while you are there.

We love this place since it makes you feel like you have come home! The staff is wonderful and the food spicy! We love to have family gatherings here since the music is nice and loud so you don't feel like little children are bothering others with their chattering. The staff loves our children to the point that the children... More

Nice clean restaurant, good service, and even though we were in there late, there was no snotty attitude. Our waiters were friendly and quick. I had chile Colorado, others had the shrimp fajitas, and the queso. Very good queso, to quote my niece, "I would eat this queso on tree bark". Good salsa and margheritas, very nice time!

The service at Montezuma is always outstanding! Soda refills come before you have finished the one in front of you. The waiters are attentive but not annoying. Food is always hot and tasty. I am typically not a fan of Mexican food but I would eat here anytime. Always good!

Food and service was great. Highly recommended. The service was constant with people filling water glasses and refilling chis and salsa. The food was very tasteful.

We relocated to the area 11 years ago, Montezuma's came into being not too long after we did here. They do have at least one other location so I guess it's a franchise. The food is consistently good, their prices of late have gone up, but whose haven't, right? If it's not packed to the gills, you can get in,... More
