Service was horrid. Drinks had no alcohol in them. Server didnt come to my table after dropping off chips for 20 minutes. Stay away at all costs

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.

I have eaten in Mexican Restaurants in Mexico, Texas, Colorado, Florida and all the Mexican restaurants in Altoona. I have returned to the Montezuma many times. When I am in the mood for Mexican food in the Altoona area, its at Montezuma. The service has always been attentive and helpful. Part of serving great food is presentation on the plate.... More

Staff is very friendly and attentive. Munch on tortillas and salsa while you wait for your order. Food is great and it doesnt take as long as most places to get in and out, which my wife and I love. Montezumas is our favorite restaurant in Altoona.

There are several Mexican/Texmex restaurants in Altoona, but Montezuma is the only one that has drawn me back to it several times. I've enjoyed every meal I've had there. I like it more than El Campesino's. There's a Chipotle on the other side of town at the other shopping center, but I've always found Chipotle a little overpriced. You can... More

We were only in Altoona for one night. We had a long day watching trains at Horseshoe Curve, and we were starving. Mexican was our pick, and Montezuma Mexican turned out to be an excellent choice. I can't believe the quality of the food, and generous portions for the price. Also our waiter was very friendly and helpful. I noticed... More

Ate here with the wife and kids. Very good Mexican food. Good portions, authentic taste, dos Equis on tap, and a clean place. Clean bathrooms. Prompt service. We have eaten excellent Mexican in Texas and SoCal, and this is close. Unexpected in central PA.

I can't believe this place. I always heard it was so good, but next time I will pass on the offer to go with anyone. The food was disgusting and I couldn't bring myself to eat it.
