Ate in house just once and it was good. We mainly use the place for takeout when in the mood for Mexican food. The servings are generous and reasonably priced, and the flavors are similar to my grandmas cooking from my childhood. Recommend either way,...More

Our party of 4 chose Moctezuma's for lunch on a weekday. Service was very slow, although the nachos and chimis were tasty but not outstanding. We ordered individual queso dips for appetizers, and they were very slow arriving, as were our simple entrees. The restaurant...More
