Nice place for Mexician food. I always order the Montezuma salad, which includes beef, chicken, and shrimp, sour cream, refried beans, and guacamomla.

On a recent trip to Gettysburg and the Military Park there stopped in for lunch at Montezuma's restaurant and enjoyed some great authentic Mexican food. The service is fast and they are generous with the chips and salsa. It was Halloween when we visited and the staff were dressed for the occasion. It's a little tucked away but with the... More

Always difficult to truly evaluate any restaurant as a first time solo customer, unless of course it's really bad, which this wasn't. There is an extensive menu so all tastes in Mexican appear to be covered. The service was super fast which also appeared to be the case for other diners. A generous bowl of tacos and salsa dip is...

I've been here a few times I had a great experience every time. Food is great and servers are wonderful. I even ordered takeout once and that was good. Definitely a good place to go!

This is a good Mexican Food Restaurant nestled away in the heart of Gettysburg. Good food and service. There are many choices close to the battle grounds and this is one of those that I go to when in Gettysburg.

Ordered takeout and received extremely cold food. The rice and beans all in an aluminum container (which should keep the food warm) were ice cold. There were still cold condensation in the container as if it was just taken out of the fridge. The chips were all stale. Worse food yet. After calling and talking to the business, they apologized...

The tropical fajita and Pina Colada I had were perfect. We were served within 10 minutes. Very nice atmosphere in a small restaurant!

Went here for lunch on the advice of our hotel concierge. She was not wrong! Just outside of downtown Gettysburg, with fast service, and good food! Definitely get the queso dip with your chips and salsa! It's white cheese with a spicy zing to it. (melted pepper jack perhaps?) We only ordered the small, and ended up getting another one.... More

I have been here and to the Waynesboro location well over 30 times in the last 5 years. Mondays and (I think) Wednesdays $5 lunch deal - can't be beat anywhere. For me, a $5 lunch with chips, I am full the rest of the day - very good portions. My favorite - carnitas - incredible pork! The rice and... More
