“Busy but always delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We seem to always visit Montezumas as a large group...as always, their food is delicious...the service is pretty good...& all our meals seem to come out pretty much at the same time. This is a popular restaurant with the younger members of our group as the food servings are really plentiful & delicious.

“Friendly service great environment.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Have eaten many times at Montezumas. Really enjoy the ambience and friendly and helpful staff. The food is always generous and we are never hungry after. The meals are consistent over the years and have been satisfied with all meal choices. Orders are quite quickly brought to the table and all at the same time. Meals may be a bit oily but the Mexican Salad (ordered separately) goes well with all the meals- share it between 2-4 people as there is always enough to go around.

“Still love the atmosphere and food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

I have been dining here over many years. Three of us dined there again tonight. I love the crazy decor (typical of all in the chain) and lively atmosphere. It is school holidays so we were expecting a long wait for our meal. We were fortunate and ordered before most diners arrived.

We didn't"t have a long wait so chilled out and enjoyed our Margaritas. Maybe the food isn"t wonderful or authentic Mexican but it is very tasty. Our 22 year old son said it is better than what he ate in Mexico (however he was back packing on $5 per day!!!)"

We love the place and take any visitors there on their last night of holiday. By the way, a tasty and filling meal for @$16??? Brilliant value. Friendly and efficient service also.

A must do.

“Pay for what you get.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Went as a group of 12 adults and 5 children for a farewell dinner. 1.5 hour wait for food. The chicken burrito was ordinary. Bar service gent was friendly/terrific. Seating was horrible and uncomfortable. Children's food was served on really hot plates and their food was that hot it burnt a little boys finger and gave him a blister. Pay for what you get really.

“decent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Been here on and off for years but never written a review before. Went last night without a booking and no problem after a little wait they accommodated us with friendly service. Ordered drinks at the bar (you have to pay cash and carry to your table)...nice touch in that the overflow from the margharitas is given to you in a separate glass..so really you get 2 drinks...i like that as so many places just throw away or give to the next person !! The food was really hot and tasty and came out reasonably fast. Prices are quite ok but i think if i can be critical these days people are looking for fresher more salad type content and the mexican food can be a little carby and stodgy...i would like to see some more fresh salad type choices or inclusions. Absolutely packed on a cold Wednesday night so i can only suggest you book if you are looking at a weekend. Enjoyable place and nice spot in Burleigh.
