Good service friendly

This is what I would call good value Mexican food with a family feel to it. They were very accommodating to slight changes ie hold the onions. Much better than I expected in Gettysburg ! As good as my regular spot in Bonita Florida

According to TA this is one of the better choices in Gettysburg, so we went for it. And were absolutely not impreesed. We choose the sampler for two persons ang got two baked plates coverd in cheese. Main taste: cholesterol and fat. Watery guacomole. Ice in drinks tasting of chlorine. Would have given it two stars in Europe, but hey,... More

This place has become one of our frequent stops. The service is friendly and consistent EVERY time we go there. The food is yummy and the wait staff is very attentive. We never have to wait for refills or our order on any day, even the weekends. The menu has some very unique dishes and we really like their variety... More

After reading some of the reviews, we decided to give this place a try, thinking perhaps it was an authentic Mexican gem in a small town. Wrong. The names on the menu sounded great, until they arrived at our table and we found out that for cheese, they used canned nacho cheese. That's it - that sums up the quality... More

This is one of the best, cheap mexican meals I've ever had. No complaints. And I ordered huevos rancheros, which I've almost given up on, because most places foul it up so badly. Not here. My companions' meals were fine too. Chips warm. Constantly attentive staff. Dirt cheap. I'd eat here every week if I lived in Gettysburg!!

I visited Montezuma after spending an afternoon snow tubing with my friends. We were looking for some comfort food, but being a Sunday there were very little options available. The location, although not exactly in the heart of town, is quite close to it and offers good parking space. Upon arrival we noticed the place was packed so we asked... More

My husband and I stopped for lunch today, first time for both of us. LOVED IT!!!! They were fast with drinks and bringing out the chips and salsa which were quite tasty. After reading other reviews we order the cheese dip and ended up ordering a large to go! AMAZING!!! We ordered the appetizer sampler and the Para Dos and... More

Have eaten here quite a bit. The service is good, fast, and the food is good. Hence it is what could be called great Mexican fast food. Have not had a bad meal here and will keep coming but there are other places in town that are a bit better.

Went on a busy Friday night but only had a ten minute wait. My wife had excellent chicken enchlladas, which come with a side of rice. Daughter had the frajita taco which came with a nice mix of grilled chicken and onion with griilled tomatoes and rice. I had the Plata Suprema with a beef chimichanga, a chicken and a... More
