Decided to stop at this Mexican place for lunch. I've passed it hundreds of times but never tried it. I did not know that it's under new management and ownership. I met the owner John. Very nice guy, down to earth. A Louisuana native from Monroe. He's an all in guy, meaning he knows the business, works with the employees... More

Well I've been to some amazing Mexican restaurants and this was not one. They boiled my steak. I had to smother it in A-1. The children had Mexican and its was not great. They serve Lobster Raviolis. Not sure who thought that up. The margarita was at least good.

Loved this place. The steak was very good. Maybe best Mexican in Lafayette. Margaritas were excellent. Great service also, will be back.

Definitely a different type of Mexican food here in Louisiana than we are used too, but this came closer to what we are used too than most. Service was quick and friendly. Even though we dined late and stayed past closing.

I went with my daughter and we ordered two different entrees. I had tamales and the chili gravy was pretty good. The rice and beans were just the same as every other normal mexican joint. Nothing really to brag about.

Do not waste your time nor money, there are better choices around Lafayette. Head to La Pagua or La Hacienda or any other Mexican Restaurant in town. My food was not very hot and tasted odd. I just asked for the check and left , I did not feel like giving them a second chance to fix their first attempt... More

My daughter and I stopped ate here today. Took our waitress 15 minutes to come to our table. The bus boy said she was bringing out food but the restaurant is small and you can see all of the tables from anywhere you sit and she did not bring out food while we waited. Tamales are extremely small, slightly better... More

I think they've changed ownership since I ate here last (a few years ago)--I used to eat lunch here regularly since it was close to my work at the time. Visited here with some friends while in town & was a little disappointed. I ordered the fajita burrito (my former favorite) which used to come as sort of a wrap--but... More

We went to Azteca's to meet my wife's family. I was not in the mood for Mexican so I decided to try a burger. This is definitely one of the better burgers I've had in Lafayette. The Mexican here is always pretty good but now I've discovered an option for when I don't feel like Mexican. For what it is... More

I love Mexican food. Having been reasied in South Texas and working extensively in Mexico I know what it should taste like based on Region. This was average. The refried beans and guac were not homeade - more the canned variety. The tortillas, also not homeade. Could have been better but but not awful.
