Moctezuma's has a nice atmosphere and decore, but food was a little lack luster in general. We stopped here for a late lunch and both had the 2 enchilada plate. The enchilada's themselves were pretty standard for an American-Mexican restaurant, but their rice left something...More

The service is great. Employees seem to like their jobs. The food was very good and the portions were generous. I recommend the seafood chimichanga. (I'm sure I just butchered that word.) Buahaha.

I honestly have never encountered staff this rude. Order, eat, get out. Our waiter was not friendly at all. His only interest was to take our order, make sure it dropped on our table with our bill, process our payment and get another group to...More
