To our delight (new to us)- we were very please with our meals. I had the cheese & spinach enchilada (single) - which was really good, plenty of food for me! My husband had the beef tacos that looked great, think it was steak. We both enjoyed our food very much. Homemade salsa was awesome and the guac was great!... More

Food was excellent and actually different from the run of the mill Mexican. They handed or group of 12 very well and they were very busy. Thanks for taking care of us.

My wife and I have a tradition: We take our closest friends (and their significant others) out for dinner on or near their birthdays. Two of my wife’s oldest friends have birthdays in November and, while we didn’t take them and their husbands out ON their birthdays, we did take them out in November. Coincidentally, both friends chose Azucar at... More

If you like Mexican food, this is the place to go. The ambience is great! The waiters are very attentive, and the service is very good. There is ample parking, and the lot is not crowded.

We had 3 servings of the chips & salsa because they were awesome. The food was very good and filling and the main courses were all very good. The service was a little slow and inattentive (the restaurant was not all that full but we still did not see a lot of our waitress) but it was fine.

I was in the neighborhood to visit some friends, and we went to a resturant nearby. We had no idea, the amazing resturant we chose. Great food, wonderful service, drinks were fabulous. We will return!

The food here is consistently good which is why I frequent this establishment. Among my favorites, the seafood soup (very flavorful), the Salmon Primavera (the sauce is wonderfully flavored and it is topped with scallops and shrimp), and the fajitas are always sizzling and great. Love their chips and salsa which is served warmed--interesting and tasty!

We were a table of 12 on Saturday evening. We had a reservation which the manager was not aware of. After we had our order taken we waited on average 45 minutes to 1 hour for our food. I ordered the chicken fajitas which has always come out sizzling But tonight it came out dry, bland and lukewarm. When I... More

Tucked in the back of a small strip center on north side of Layhill Road is a wonderful Mexican restaurant. They serve excellent fajitas as well as a wide variety of other Mexican dishes. Service is prompt and efficient. They have what appears to be a dance floor in the eating area and there may be live music and dancing... More
