This is one of our "go-to" Mexican restaurants. We have consistently had great service and great food. We have dined here 6-8 times in the past 2 yrs or so. We tend to avoid this kind of popular spot during peak times. So, normally we choose a weekday and tend to get there before 6pm to ensure no waiting. We... More

Some unique plates at this location. My first time here and was expecting the same bland typical dishes (tacos, enchiladas, burritos) but they were quite refreshing with Seafood Chimichangas and a half-pineapple stuffed chicken dish. See pics. Decent drinks rounded out the lunch. Recommended.

The last few times I went the service has been horribly slow. We went recently for my mothers bday and we had two babies with us so attentative service wouldve been nice because the kids became restless and started to get loud, felt bad about disturbing the other tables. At the same time there were tables around us that got... More

Place looks to be well decorated, but the food does not come out fast enough for a quick lunch while on lunch break. Food was ok, but I did not see anything special.

Don't make the mistake of going to one of the chains in the area (Margaritas). If you want great portions, fresh ingredients, and authentic flavor you have to go to Azteca. The food is unbelievably good and the prices are reasonable. The only minor issue is that the alcholic drinks are expensive, but the Margaritas are good. Highly recommended.

Great Margaritas. The homemade quacomoli made at your table is worth the show and taste. If you end here.....it's a good night. But if you order any other apps or main course you will not be happy...unless you love frozen Mexican you make in a micro. The Mexican food here is horrible. I think they make the food a day...

Went with a group of 6 and most had been there before. Parking is sparse and as expected it was really busy on a Friday night at 7:30 as most restaurants are around this time. Sat down and thought it was going to be great since the drinks and chips and order of guac came out relatively quick. Then the... More

This place is always busy, it's the only negative I have for it. Otherwise the food has always been very good, even when I go with people that don't care for mexican food they like it. The prices are also very good. I can eat a whole meal, feel very full and the price is very reasonable.

Thank Ninloot
