i went here today with a friend for a business lunch. The ambience was good and the service was excellent! The booth was too tight but tolerable. A table would have been more comfortable, which I will remember next time. I ordered their chicken quesadilla, which was honestly the best I have had! I recommend this restaurant highly!

Used to date someone who would bring me here fairly regularly. Food was always excellent. I typically had the combo platters as I get to taste more: pork tamale, chile relleno, and beef enchilada was my favorite. All were excellent. The fajitas were amazing too. And so were the chorizo shrimp tacos! Yum. There in house salsa was incredible. Always... More

This is the best Mexican restaurant that I have been to in the entire USA for two reasons: 1) The customer service is better than any restaurant that I have ever been to. They will not let you leave unsatisfied. 2) The food is awesome.

On top of the great atmosphere, amazing food and excellent service, Moctezuma has still, yet to fail me. As soon as we got our table we got a huge, delicious bowl of salsa with hot chips, and our drinks within just a minute of that. We only waited about 15 mins for our food, IF that. The entire staff was... More

Twice in one week I visited this establishment at the recommendation of my colleagues. I wasn't disappointed. The restaurant is ample with excellent parking. Easy to get to in South Tacoma but even better at the menu choices. The drink menu is exceptional and they are a tequila bar. Appetizers are numerous and the happy hour prices are better than...

On a trip to Portland we stopped enroute for a late evening meal at Moctezuma's Mexican Restaurant in Tacoma - though we arrvied late it was still open for dinner and we were immediately seated in a nice booth. The waiter was extremely friendly. We ordered some drinks (Margaritas - of course) - and they came with a huge bowl... More

Our favorite Mexican restaurant in the area. Everything here is consistent and flavorful. Their Acapulco Margarita is made with real citrus juices, not the sugary mix that you get at other places. Staff is friendly and welcoming. All in all, a great place!

Welcome to a step into another world! From the music playing and the smells, the environment definitely prepares you for the experience even before you approach the hostess stand. We visited on a busy Friday night and took one of the last parking spots available and were concerned that we would have a long wait. Ten minutes later we were... More
