We arrived at Montezuma's Mexican restaurant around 8:00 pm on a Friday for dinner. The restaurant was still filled with patrons, which made me wonder, "Just how busy is this place during normal dinner hours?" I ordered the California burrito, which is one burrito about the same size as an adult man's size 10 sneaker but much, Much, MUCH better... More

As a local resident, I frequent Montezuma's on a very regular basis. I can honestly say that both the food and service are consistently good. You get chips and salsa as you are seated, plenty of drink refills, attentive wait staff, and an abundance of food. Great prices, family friendly, an A+ rating in my book!

I'm visiting Pennsylvania from the west coast for an extended period of time. On the west coast Mexican food is abundant which is not true of Pennsylvania so when we drove by Montezuma after a day at the Gettysburg museum we had to stop.

We are local to the area and love love love this place. Very quick service. Chips and salsa are amazing. Most meals are brought out in less then 15 mins. Very friendly staff. My only recommendation is to create new space with outdoor dining spaces.

Stopped in for the first time ! Great chips and salsa... great nachos... My salad was lacking a bit (a bit wet and sloppy lacking lettuce) but flavor was nice. Overall a nice affordable surprise in Gettysburg.

This place has all of the Americanized Mexican favorites and some traditional dishes and unique dishes of its own. Friendly prompt service. Note that they do not serve liquor- no margaritas but you can BYOB.

We frequently enjoy lunch or dinner here and have celebrated a couple birthdays here as well. We are always completely satisfied with the food and service. They are friendly and efficient. Kids LOVE it. Especially the cheese dip and tortilla chips and salsa are always fresh and delicious. Love the Grilled Shrimp or Chicken Fajita Burrito, my favorite.
