Truely an amazing experience

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

Not being American, I am not big into fast food so it was nice to get some rice and beans and meat for a change while visiting the Tacoma area. I thought the food was really good, the service was excellent. One thing though, my boyfriend ordered a chicken dish and something in the sauce (we suspect) gave him an... More

The food here is good, for this reason alone I would go back. The family sitting in another table beside me arrived after me, ordered after me but got served before me! Before you assume what I ordered was complex with long cook times, it wasn't. I ordered Mole Pablano and was approached by a different waiter than who took... More

If you don't want fast food, but hate to wait..here is the place for you. The food is as consistent as a Timex watch, and by the time you are half way through the warm, crisp complimentary chips and salsa, your food has arrived. The menu has enough variety to please everyone from no spiceness to HOT! HOT! HOT! The... More
