Entradas, comidas, combinaciones, bebidas, postres – if you’re an Australian food lover, speak this language and are already salivating it’s likely you learned the speak and had your gustatory responses conditioned at one of the many Montezuma’s Mexican restaurants scattered about the hinterlands. This famous family of Mesoamerican eateries has been on several blocks since 1978 and shows no sign of slowing down in its conquest of the Mexican food scene – same goes here in the North Ipswich branch at the Riverlink Shopping Centre, best accessed from The Terrace.
Montezuma’s culinary cult began to gain a following in Burleigh Heads back in 1978. These days you can find outlets of what has become one of Australia’s most famous families of Mexican restaurants across Queensland, in New South Wales and South Australia. Here in Ipswich, North Ipswich’s Riverlink Shopping Centre to be precise, Montezuma’s offers the same colourful atmosphere, an Aztec-themed temple dedicated to unveiling the mysteries of Mexican cuisine. There’s depth besides, though, with a menu packed with finely tuned Mexican classics.
Find Montezuma’s North Ipswich restaurant by heading to the Riverlink Shopping Centre, turning down Heiner Road off The Terrace or walking up the Bremer River from Pine Street. Inside, slake your thirst and pique your curiosity with Montezuma’s signature sangria (also available as a less punchy non-alcoholic option), famous margaritas, Mexican and domestic beers, and peruse the satisfyingly comprehensive food menu. A Speedy Gonzales combinacion or the vegetarian and gluten-free Vera Cruz are a good bet (there’s a standalone vegan menu, too), but remember to leave room for postres – churros!
