Montezuma doesn't have a lot of great dining options, so we were extra happy to find Puggo's! And since we found this restaurant, we never went anywhere else for dinner anymore (we were in Montezuma for a week). We met the owner and the waitress, both really friendly and outgoing. The service was great! And the food... We tried pretty... More

Like everything else in Montezuma, this is a bit pricy, but the food was good. One day I tried sushi, and the other day I tried a sald with some kebabs with rice and vegetables. The sushi was good, not excellent but not bad, and the Mediterranean food was very good with slight exception of the vegetables but that was... More

Puggo's is kindof two restaurants in one. There's the standard Puggo's menu and also a sushi menu that I believe is open Thursday-Sunday or thereabouts. I can't speak much for the main menu, but the sushi menu is great. The rolls are so-so, but the specials are always on point.

My mother and I had the best meals in Montezuma eating out at Puggo's. The food was truly exceptional; it felt like fine dining for a fraction of the price in the middle of Montezuma. The chef is a lovely woman by the name of Maya who puts a great deal of care and love into her unique Middle Eastern... More
