Surprisingly Good!

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... read 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.

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.
