This is the one – here in the Gold Coast’s Burleigh Heads sits the original, resplendent Montezuma’s Mexican restaurant, opened in 1978. Since then, Montezuma’s has built a loyal fanbase of Mesoamerican food fans across Australia. Here in the Burleigh Theatre Arcade on Goodwin Terrace the offering is still as consistently excellent as at any of the more than 150 outlets beloved by Aussie diners. Montezuma’s Burleigh Heads restaurant remains the template for the family’s typically festive Mexican theme, and is ideal for casual dining with friends and family or big parties.

Favourites at Montezuma’s classic Gold Coast restaurant at the Burleigh Theatre Arcade on Goodwin Terrace include the classic chilli con carne, Montezuma’s Delight (a dish that’s remained unchanged since this very Montezuma’s restaurant opened in the late 70s), the San Francisco combinacion that matches a chicken and sour cream enchilada with a beef burrito and Spanish rice, the tamale pie and – as always – traditional churros to round it all off! As for drinks, there are pitchers of liquored and non-alcoholic refreshment to wash it all down.
