Moctezumas Mexican Restaurant
Moctezuma’s first came to life in 1978, when Arturo Garcia decided to share his culture, love of cooking, and knowledge of the correct spelling of “Montezuma” with Northwest diners. To this day, diners can expect excellent service and a tasty menu of authentic, home-style Mexican cuisine prepared from the finest ingredients. Focus the palate with some fiesta queso dip ($5.99) or some chorizo bean dip ($5.99), then use your mouth mowers to shred a carne-asada salad ($11.99) with homemade chipotle-ranch dressing. Discriminating diners can find out what it takes to win Weekly Volcano's brutal, no-holds-barred Tournament of Tacos by trying a serving of Mexico City tacos ($12.99) stuffed with carne asada, marinated chicken, or pork carnitas. Final Fantasy fans, meanwhile, will get a kick out of watching the waiter cast Firaga on a plate of steak, chicken, or shrimp fajitas ($16.49) using a little gold tequila and a flamethrower. And if a cheddar-, guacamole-, and sour-cream-topped chimichanga ($11.99) doesn't make one sufficiently nostalgic for one's former life as a mermaid, enjoy a plate of camarones a la diabla ($14.99) with rice and sautéed vegetables, or happily consume a Cabo shrimp cocktail ($12.99) and then wash away the evidence with a refreshing Jalapeño Margarita, with house-made jalapeño-infused tequila, triple sec and fresh-squeezed citrus juices, hand-shaken and served in a 20 oz. shaker ($7.95).
