Excellent carne asada tacos. Very simple, grilled steak with pico de gallo and salsa on the side. Ultra fresh and seasoned to perfection. Chips and salsa were outstanding too.

We visited for lunch on 12/7. As always, this is our "go to" place for Tex-Mex style food. We have been here many times over the years; mostly for lunch, and have never been disappointed.

I have been going here for years. Good food, great margaritas and friendly staff.Does it stand out above all the rest? Maybe not but after years of eating at El Azteca I have no complaints. Can be very busy at times but I guess that says something about the place huh?

This is a great little Mexican restaurant with an attentive wait staff and you can seat yourself which is a plus. Food is very good and plentiful. I love seafood and had the Fajitas El Azteca which was fantastic and would recommend any seafood lovers to try. Everyone enjoyed their dishes and they came out sizzling with food piled high....

Where to begin? The service was almost passable for lunch time, but I felt it was just barely sub-par. The food was priced well for the portions, but the kitchen definitely dropped the ball. The meat looked like a gelatinous mass that I would expect from a can and was drenched with grease. The taco was meat, cheese, and lettuce... More

Great food and service. I like that you can seat yourself and still get noticed and served quickly. The staff is friendly and constantly making sure the tables and restaurant are clean. The food is always tasty too.

I got the carne asada tacos & the meat looked like dog food from a can. Very bland. The refried beans tasted like paste and the pico was good until I found what looked like a thin, moldy piece for straw. The best thing here was the salsa after adding the habenero sauce to it. The mango margarita was way... More

This is our go to restaurant when we are in the mood for Mexican food. The staff is very friendly and the food is so good. Prices are reasonable especially if you have a family to feed.
