This is a favorite Mexican place for dinner. I like sitting in the bar area and having table service. The food is great and it is a nice mix of people. I'm not there late at night but I understand it becomes more of a club scene with dancing.

I'm a Mexican Food and American-style fruity margarita fan in general, so I gravitate towards restaurants like this. I loved my blood orange margarita and chicken tacos, and the fun atmosphere with music really set the mood. It's not fancy, you order at the counter and then the server brings it to the table you choose. It's what you'd expect... More

Service at Aztec Willie's is cafeteria-style and food is plated quickly. The menu features standard fare found at many Mexican restaurants, and there is little that's distinctive or inventively seasoned about what is served based on the lunch I had--tostada with chicken mole, tortilla chips, and salsa.

Aztec Willie's is a very comfortable neighborhood Mexican restaurant and bar with indoor and outdoor seating. It is very family friendly and handles large groups very well. The salsa is good, chips fresh, and entrees we've tried have all been good. The meat fillings are well seasoned, beans (your choice of pinto, black or refried) are all good and the... More

Pro tip - it's counter service, order at the counter and the food gets delivered to you. The space is nice, large and family-friendly. The menu is diverse and the actual food is okay. The exception is the tortilla soup - just terrible. Not authentic at all. Otherwise, pretty good food.

We went twice during our Portland stay. The food was good, but the tortilla soup was not authentic. While it was good chicken soup, tortilla soup it was not. Nice margaritas and an excellent kids play room would make me return.

It was convenient and we were ready for Mexican food. The Margarita's were OK-but not the super-size ones that we are used to back home! My wife's burrito was OK, as was my enchilada combo platter. Nothing outstanding- but not bad either. If you are in the area, and you have a hankering for Mexican food then this is a... More

If you are staying or shopping in the Lloyd Center area this is a must visit. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun and the food is fresh and delicious. Their salsa is fresh made daily and mouthwatering. The bartender Reese was extremely helpful, friendly and welcoming and he makes a wicked mojito! It s extremely busy because of a concert... More

We stopped in here because we were interested in the talk of salsa dancing and lessons but nothing had started up by10:00 so we left. Haven't felt the need to go back for more of the food.

There are plenty of other interesting restaurants in this area - go to one of those. This spot has nothing of value to report on. It is a cafeteria to be avoided.

We are locally owned and operated, and our formula is simple: fresh ingredients, authentic recipes and expert assembly go into each and every one of our burritos, tacos, quesadillas and Mexican plates. We prepare your food when you order it â€" right in front of you. You choose your fillings and condiments, chatting with the folks on the line about your selections. You can ask for samples, too. There's something for everyone. For those with hearty appetites, burritos put an entire plate of food inside a warm flour tortilla. Soft, tortilla tacos offer a lighter option, depending on how many you order. With rice and beans, and grilled vegetable options, Aztec Willies' is a great spot for vegetarians too! We know that outdoor dining is one of Portland's summer pleasures so we have put 15 tables outside! Plus we have a large kids play area. Fun for everyone! We also can accommodate large parties and events so call us or stop by and let us help you host!
