The service is fast and usually pretty friendly. Prices are good. Personally I'm not a fan of the white sauce and their guac isn't my favorite, but it's still good. I usually get take-out at least once a week and have tried a bunch of different things on the menu. Definitely a good, reliable place for a reasonable lunch/dinner.

El Azteca is my go to Mexican Food restaurant when I'm in the mood for tasty, served hot Mexican food and I'm guaranteed friendly and courteous service. On the latest visit I tried one of the more traditional pork dishes and had a delicious feast. The warm chips and salsa they brought out before the meal were both tasty. My... More

Service was friendly and fairly quick. Enjoyed the burritos and rice combo. Portions were quite large. However, my favorite thing was the chips (light and crisp) which came with two kinds of salsa...the regular red sauce and a white creamy sauce that was wonderfully spicy. I could have eaten a whole meal of that.

Had a family dinner here when we didn't want to cook. Service was friendly, and food came out fast! We had quesadillas, tacos (hard and soft), rice and beans. The Carnitas was especially good. Large chunks of pork, not what I've typically had, but very tender, juicy, and delicious! I would come back.

Enjoyed typical Mexican fare, in family friendly restaurant. Choice of local residents, as many patrons greeted and acknowledged each other. Located away from the interstate down toward town in a shopping center.

The chips were thick and cold. The meal was not memorable in any way. The staff was pretty good. I would not eat there again.

Awesome stop in Ashland not far from I-95. Great chips and the white sauce is the best thing since sliced bread. I recommend the chicken taco salad!
