First time at this location since the Provo location closed. We have been coming to El Azteca since the parents had it near BYU. Not quite the same but so much better than the other fast food Mexican restaurants. Tacos are still amazing as well as nachos. Their bean soup is the best ever! Miss the salsa bar. Trust us... More

They are very nice here, with great service. The food is excellent. We usually call in the order and go through the drive-thru. Don't waste your money at chain taco restaurants - go here.

They didn't serve any salsa or chips and if you wanted some, you had to pay for them. The enchiladas were tasteless and hardly had any stuffing in them.The tacos were just average. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

I haven't tried too manny things on their menu, because overtime I go I enjoy their beef taco combination plate(hard shell). It is to dye for if you like a good authentic taco these are for you. the other thing I love is their tres leche cake. It was the first place I ever had it and it's great.

Have eaten here many times, and the problem is always "What to get today..." I agree with other positive reviews, the beans are great, chicken and beef dishes are very tasty and satisfying. If you are really hungry try the nachos - I have never been able to finish a plate. Today I had the chicken nachos, got a little... More

Excellent and typical Mexican menu. Above average for semi-fast Mexican food. You won't go wrong with this place, at several locations.

We have loved the food at El Azteca for decades. The hard shelled tacos are the best. Nachos is generous and great. I love the hot sauce bar especially the spicy pickled carrots. I always go for the sweet mild sauce. The chips and salsa's are homemade. The employees are friendly and helpful. Love this place.

We had arrived for a night stay in Orem on our way to Grand Teton and had come from Bryce Canyon. Found this place and the food was good and they were friendly asked where we were from, Scottish accent, and recommended going to Sundance, which is what we did the next morning, fantastic place. Friendly, excellent food and prices!
