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!
The booking process was simple and hassle free. Montezuma's phoned to confirm. As a large group they were very accommodating and even moved our entire party to outside as it was such a nice night. the service was great and the food, as always, delicious. a fun night had by all!
Service was outstanding! Very welcoming but not overbearing, attentive but not intrusive. The staff member even offered a pair of glasses for my husband to borrow to read the menu, to save him going back to the car for them. There was a lot of choice on the menu, and I appreciated the range for gluten free, dairy free and vegetarian. Dessert was a bonus! We enjoyed the outdoor seating area overlooking the river, and there were few people walking past as it doesn't open to the main thoroughfare, resulting in a more private lunch venue. Very much appreciated thank you.
Friendly customer service. It's was great to see that they are now catering for Vegans I was able to enjoy choosing from the menu sress free rather than making special requests and missing out. We had a relaxing enjoyable evening Definitely dining with Montezuma's again 👍
