My co-worker and I like to treat ourselves on payday and we almost always choose Montezuma. The chips and salsa are delicious, and everything I've had from the lunch menu has been very good. You don't leave hungry for sure!

We stopped off here for dinner after touring the battlefield. It was a spur of the moment decision, but the large number of cars in the lot told us the restaurant is popular with locals, which is always a good sign. We got a table right away, and the wait time for the food to be served is average. The... More

We are always pleased with the food and they are very accommodating. We recently called ahead to let them know that we would have 16 people in our group and they had tables set up for us. I particularly like the chicken chimichanga - get it fried!

Tried this restaurant based upon Trip Advisor reviews, but disappointed. Resturant looked tired and food looked and tasted like it had been made day before at least with exception of grilled chicken. No flavor - salt and seasoning needed to be added to almost everything. Worst was leaving restaurant the smell of garbage in parking lot and over full bin... More

Montezuma offers a wide variety of Mexican dishes that many of us have come to expect. All dishes were served hot, especially the fajitas, and tasted fresh. Burritos were good but not remarkable. The fajita quesadilla was interesting, but had a crunchy crust instead of a soft crust. The service staff was friendly and really hustled to bring food and... More

Someone in our family eats here nearly every week...we LOVE it. And so do MANY other locals. The place is generally packed full over lunch hour and typical dinner times. The service is exceptionally fast & food consistently delicious no matter busy they are. However, if you'd prefer a less crowded time, my tip is to schedule your touring so... More

I had the opportunity to eat here after a day of training. The food was served hot and delicious . The flan was wonderful! The atmosphere was casual and the server was friendly and efficient. A great place to unwind.

This is a great little local place. I eat here a few times a month. The food is hot, quick, and cheap. Service is prompt; no frills. This is the Pennsylvania version of Americanized Mexican food, so even though I've never had a bad meal there, it may not be for everyone.
