My wife and I have been here several times and we find it to be the best Mexican food in the area. Whenever we have guests from out of town that want Mexican we take them here. The food and service are excellent and the portions are very large. We always have leftovers.

The food tasted fine. We had the fresh guacamole which was good also. We told them specifically we were interested in vegetarian food and asked about how things were cooked - all is fine we were assured. But they used meat products in preparing the food - and my friend who is a life long vegetarian got very sick from... More

We were a party of 3 couples. The food was plentiful and delicious! The strawberry daiquiris were excellent. Service was very good and the waitress had no problem when separate checks were requested. The atmosphere was nice - not awkwardly quiet but we were able to visit and hear each other. If we go back to Gastonia we'll definitely go... More

Overall we enjoyed our meal here. The food was good and was a large portion. I noticed other tables received a bowl of pico de gallo with their chips and sauce, but we were never offered any. We I ordered extra sour cream, I was brought out green salsa- but another waitress came by and straightened that out. All in... More

Ate there for the first time September 11 and enjoyed the food. Had more than enough so had leftovers for later. The staff were very helpful even with my disabled husband. Fixed him a special grilled cheese sandwich. Great place to celebrate with family and friends.

If you are interested in receiving decent service then don't bother with this restaurant. We ordered a nachos platter appetizer with a comment that we may want to order something else depending if we were still hungry. We ordered the white cheese nachos and requested jalapeños on the side. Never got them. The chips ended up soggy in a pool... More

I was in Gastonia visiting family and decided I wanted to check out an authentic Mexican restaurant. Unfortunately, I was very let down by Azteca's. The service was very slow to start, and completely dropped off from there. After the food was delivered, the server literally never came back one single time. I didn't receive all the items I wanted,... More

Had a gift certificate for this place ( I'm glad the certificate was free) we had the lunch buffet. Not a lot of choices, most pans were empty and what was on the buffet was dried up. Not worth the trip.
