I was traveling through this city on our way to the Mall of America. We chose to stop here for lunch. We found it through a google search. Turns out to be a smart choice! The menu offers normal mexican flare. We both chose carne asada. The meat was flavorful and juicy. My daughter ordered the carne asada plate with... More

If your like me and found yourself less then satisfied with certain Mexican restaurants in Rochester MN then listen closely because I feel I may have finally found one that tops the rest. Last weekend, feeling like spending my time home with my loved ones, we decided to try the new Azteca location. We thought our last experience in the... More

We used a Restaurant.com coupon to eat dinner here. The atmosphere was pretty standard for an authentic Mexican restaurant. The service was excellent. We never had to wait for more drinks or chips and salsa. The salsa was very fresh tasting. I had fajitas and there was enough for two meals. The veggies were char grilled which I love, but... More

Ate here as it was near hospital and had a ring of familiarity to a chain where I live....4hours away....I am hopeful that they are no relation...lol. Before I lay out the clues, only positive was ...the one waitress that ran circles after the crowd trickled in. Arrived near noon....clue1; 1st ones there, not a single customer. We contemplated turning... More

Wednesday, September 17, 2014 - in a hurry and hungry for Mexican, I searched for Mexican Restaurants in Rochester, MN to jog my memory for something other than Taco Bell and Chipotle. Azteca popped up. Remembering a previous lunch *date* with friends and the abundance and high quality of the food I decided to give the place a try. Although... More

We used to eat at Azteca regularly when they were located by KMart. This was our first time at the new location. Much more space, brighter, cleaner,.... Chips and salsa were very good. My husband started out with a cup of chicken soup....which is actually a good sized bowl - delicious. We shared the fajita with shrimp, steak, and chicken.... More

This little restaurant can be easily overlooked as it is located in a strip mall on a frontage road beside Hwy 52 off the main road leading from downtown and St. Mary's Mayo Clinic Hospital. It is not fancy at all, on the smaller side but, leading us to believe we had made a great choice, it was packed in... More
