My husband and I are new residents of Mt. Juliet. We went out looking for a place for dinner and found El Rey Azteca! We were pleasantly surprised. Food and margaritas were delicious! We will be back! Our server was Fabian. May Bueno!

Every time we come here, there is no disappointment. Margaritas are great, (including the "special" ordered "Skinny"...wow!) the poblano peppers are authentic...not "dipped in flour and deep fried "American". Great homemade "chunky" homemade salsa (not purée, runny, like most Mexican restaurants). Just the perfect, authentic...More

Food was just ok. Not my favorite Mexican restaurant in Mt. Juliet, but I know others who love it. Probably won't be back.

PAuthentic Mexican Food, Great Margaritas, Relaxed Atmosphere and Great for Families!! Established in 1997 We are the first Mexican restaurant in Mt Juliet, and won the best Mexican restaurant in 2012 for the Mt Juliet area. The restaurant has been under new ownership and management since 2011. The entire inside has been renovated with new lighting, tables, booths, and bar!In 2006 Memo started working at El Rey Azteca in Mt Juliet as a server and worked very hard and all customers wanted to sit his his section. They always said he's a mover and takes pride in his job. He always says " hard work pays off" and that it did. So when the opportunity raised for him to buy the restaurant he did. He has built a team that has the same thoughts " hard work pays off". We are blessed to have wonderful customers that now have become family.
