First visit back here in many years. The food is very good as well as the service. However, the menu prices have increased, paid $8.99 for a lunch special, an enchilada, cheese quesadila and rice. I generally don't spend that for lunch.

El Azteca is right next to the Plymouth Grand Theatre, making it the perfect before or after movie dinner location. The staff is friendly, the menu extensive and a great place to take children.

Was very crowded, which seemed a good sign. Food was simply ok, with little flavor. Food had little consistency / structure; in some ways all the dishes seemed to be the same. Little of spices, seasonings. Low-priced margaritas were watery.

Cheap and Decent Margarita during Hapoy Hour! stopped in here for a drink and lunch while I waited for a friend getting a massage at the Aveda Spa next door. I ordered the beef burrito and chicken tamale. Chips and salsa were pretty bland, chicken tamale good but not great, beef burrito was really good. I'd recommend the Happy Hour... More

We have been dining here for years. In the summer there is a nice outdoor seating area, the portions are large and tasty and they have a fabulous happy hour - world class margaritas and beers.

Prices were very reasonable, but this on seems more in line with the old Chi-Chis, or Don Pablo style of Mexican eats. Serviceable, average.. standard for a Mexican restaurant in Minnesota. We would go to Linda's Mexican in Maple Grove for better...

We tend to frequent this restaurant after a movie. Portions are huge so we take home the leftovers. I usually order a combination platter of varying options. Taco salad is enormous and could easily be shared. Off see large family groups. Service efficient.

Great local restaurant for Mexican food at a very reasonable price. I love the Carne Asada and the fresh salsa and chips (if you are not a fan of cilantro, ask your server to just bring the ranch dip or you will get a cup of each). Lots of menu choices--tacos, burritos, enchiladas, etc. as well as all options for... More

The food, service, and entrees were wonderful. I would come back again. Love their salsa verde! The chips and dip were great. Good atmosphere. Great place for families, and work meetings.
