Nice friendly, fast service and best of all great food!

Nice friendly, fast service and best of all great food! Went for lunch on a Sunday. Happy hour all day on Sunday but only for drinks at the bar. We ate in dinning room with no happy hour except at the bar. Happy hour is only $1 off per house margarita. Service was very prompt during lunch which it... read more

We've been eating here for decades and it is a special place for us. When we moved away for 3 years Moctezuma's was one of the things we missed from home! The last couple times we've been it seems that the wait staff have been a little slow, but it would never keep us away because we love the food... More

This restaurant is great and their happy hour is awesome. There prices are reasonable I used to come here once a week when I lived here but they did change their margarita pre mix so now it tastes more sour than before and too sugary for me other than that very good.

Our party of four arrived around 6pm on Saturday night and were told to expect a 30 minute wait. About 10 minutes later, we were seated. The chips were warm and crisp and the salsa had a nice smoky flavor. The red sangria was delightful, and potent! Three of us each had a different salad (Adobo Taco, Mexican Chopped, and... More

Met some close friends here tonight at their favorite restaurant . My family had been here before so we knew the food was good. Pedro brought us out some jalapeño poppers wrapped in bacon. WOW! I had the chimichanga del mar which was fantastic. Wait staff, good and atmosphere are the best.

We went here for lunch today and it was very good. The presentation was much better than we have seen and the prices were not outrageous, ok maybe $11 for queso is, but the presentation of that was also nice and made right at the table. The drink menu looked very good so maybe next time I'll get one.
