Great variety and very good food and service!

I have begun to dine at this restaurant about once a week. It has improve lately and has very good service. The bank computer did not work for a credit sale to be completed. I told them that I would return the next day when the bank would be able to handle the transaction and they agreed. I did... read more

Typical Mexican Food Restaurant. Chips and salsa were good. Have a standard "mix" already prepared, so can't really special order too much.

I'm not sure what it is about Altoona PA but there are some quality Mexican Restaurants in the area, this is one of them. A similar menu to most mexican restaurants but the food is a notch better. Good flavors, good portions, good Margaritas! And the service is usually quite good as well. You can't go wrong at Montezuma if... More

Most inexpensive Tex-Mex restaurants cover mediocre food hidden under a lot of highly spiced sauce. While there are plenty of sauces (I was served three different ones), their food stands on its own! I had carnitas which--without added sauce--may have been the best rendition of this dish I have ever had. The pork pieces had been marinated and were actually... More

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.

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.

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.
