We sought out this restaurant because the reviews named it the best Mexican in Hawaii. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t anything special. The rice was bland, everything else was just mediocre. I had verde chicken enchilada and the sauce tasted like it came out...More

We love their homemade salsa and their Chile Verde Burrito which I regularly order. Tender pieces of pork cooked in a flavorful sauce which is like no other ! The owner is very friendly and accommodating.

Old school Mexican with a familiar menu. Been going to Azteca since its first location on Kuhio for their flavorful refried beans, rice and salsa. From mole to chimichanga - everything's delicious and comforting.

We're from Austin, TX, so we are used to really good Mexican food. We were pleasantly surprised to find Azteca. The food had a home-style quality and the flavors were right on. Definitely worth a stop.

Azteca Mexican restaurant is not fancy, but the food is very good and reasonable. They have excellent margarita drinks. It's not a large place, and you may dress casually.

Yes, metered parking is behind the building. Take some quarters. As for walking from Waikiki that depends on where you are on Waikiki. If you are into walking then walking from the zoo area would be a good walk.
