Feeling like a culinary conquistador? Charge down Labrador’s Central Street towards the Coral Sea, take a sharp right on Frank Street (otherwise known as the Gold Coast Highway) and storm the temple of Montezuma’s for a satisfying victory over Mexican food. People have been doing it Australia wide since 1978, and the enthusiasm for this restaurant family’s lively, Aztecan take on Mesoamerican food culture has only grown and got better with age. Haven’t donned a sombrero or tried one of Montezuma’s tacos? Book yourself a table now.
The rise of the cult of Montezuma’s began on the Gold Coast in Burleigh Heads way back in 1978. A short 13 auspicious years later, in 1991, it became clear that the Mexican food revolution represented by this single restaurant was too big to contain. Since opening the concept to franchisees, Montezuma’s restaurants have run amok, bringing the taste of Mexico to Australians further north to Labrador and up and down the coast. Indeed, keep some water – or, better, an ice-cold cerveza or frosty margarita – handy if you’re wading into Montezuma’s spicier fare…
The central pillar of Montezuma’s selection of entrees are the nachos, and the comidas are no laughing matter either – Montezuma’s Delight smothers corn tortillas with frijoles, cheese veggie salad, ranchero sauce sour cream and olives with your choice of shredded beef, chicken or a vego option with Spanish rice. If you’re new to Montezuma’s restaurants here on Labrador’s Frank Street, we recommend choosing one of the popular combinaciones to convince yourself why this family of Mexican restaurants has wowed generations of Gold Coast and Australian diners.
The service provided is excellent, very friendly and fast. The food is fabulous and we will definitely be back! . . . . . .
