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

I had never been to El Rey Azteca when my girl friends and I stumbled upon it one evening. The servers were friendly, the restaurant was clean and the food was GREAT! It was exciting to find a good "Mexican Food Place" in Mt Juliet!

Plenty of space for our party of 12. The food was delicious. The dining area was clean. I give the staff a 100% for fun and service! We were celebrating my brothers' birthday. They came to the table very energetic to sing to him. Put a sumbraro on his head and gave him a drink and dessert. Before he could... More

I love the food at this place, everything is good. The pitchers are huge for two people, be careful. I just wish they would do happy hour instead. Location is close to the Planet Fitness so it is open to the parking lot. The service is really great.

I judge a Mexican restaurant on its Salsa... This is the best for my taste. The menu is good with a variety of great dishes. The owner is friendly and the servers are great.

The server was friendly and very helpful--especially since my wife did not really know what she wanted! The food came as explained by the server and was delicious. The server was attentive after our food arrived and we we had a pleasant meal with a very authentic Mexican atmosphere. Great value for the price.

Description
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.
