Favorite Mexican restaurant

Although the heat was broken when we went last weekend, and we were freezing, it was still a good place to eat. I like it much better than El Camp.

The heat has not worked for over 2 months now.They are trying to heat it with just a few portable heaters. Unless you enjoy freezing this is not the place to go. Many left before they even got their food.

After trying each of the three Mexican restaurants in the immediate area this is the best in class. Service is quick and friendly (lunch or dinner); the staff remembers you; they understand you better than the "English as a first language servers" at other places. Their standard Salsa is great and the Tomatillo Salsa is killer and consistent. The lunch... More

Food was good but the portions were skimpy for the price. Male server was less than adequate. An ok place to eat but not a place to frequent regularly.

We have enjoyed the food here several times and the pork carnitas is excellent. The pork has been so moist and tender and delicious. We have never had a bad meal here.

I always go to Montezuma when I'm craving Mexican. The service is always great and so is the food. I love the atmosphere and the way the restaurant is decorated.

The service was great and so was the food. The prices are as good as it gets at an ethnic restaurant. We have been there a half dozen times or so and I have tried a different meal every time. I have not been disappointed with any of them. I love the chips and salsa that is served almost as... More

We always get a great meal here. Fresh, fast food and excellent service keeps us coming back. The atmosphere is festive and clean. I prefer the grilled chicken salad but you can't go wrong with any dish.

From one try, I am very pleased with this restaurant. All the food was well prepared and richly flavored, just a pleasure. The location is fantastic, a tennis-ball throw from I-99 Plant Rd. exit and thus the perfect travel stop.
