We chose to eat lunch and found excellent value $9 lunches. Service was very good. The restaraunt was well subscribed but plenty of tables nooks and some outside dining.

Just recently dined in with family to celebrate My daughters 22nd birthday. We're surprised they have many choices of vegan meals, and surprisingly they have this vegan cheese and sour cream. Food and service are really exceptional in this authentic restaurant. We'll definitely comeback.

Stuffy restaurant, bad food, bad service, beyond dissapointing, cannot advise stronger not to go to this restaurant, they clearly rely on tourists as I very much doubt their are any regulars

Good food, bad service. Well organized filling meals. But there is no spice or flavor really. The drinks are nice. Have to pay extra for stuff like sour cream and guacamole..... like seriously at those prices paying extra is ridiculous. Noisy. Cramped. But very bright.

I've dined at many Montezumas and I suspect they are going down the same path as Sizzlers insofar as the prices are becoming ridiculously high whilst the quality and quantity of the food head in the other direction. My meal was almost all chopped salad style verges with the tasteless beef and tiny sprinkling of cheese making a pretty mediocre... More

The food is fresh, delicious and the price is right. The work colleagues and I go in almost everyday for lunch beacuse of the $10.00 lunch special. Tacos and awesome!! The salad is so fresh.

We had a craving for Mexican food after watching a movie and thought that this should offer a great choice of meals. I really wanted a plate of Nachos and had a mental picture in my head of what it would look like and I was totally disappointed. I was expecting the traditional Nachos made with Corn Chips (CC's) and... More
