We stayed at a hotel near this restaurant and were pleasantly surprised at the menu selection and quality of the food. My wife had the spinach enchilada and I ordered a chile relleno, chicken enchilada and fish taco from the a la carte menu and all were delicious! The complimentary chips salsa, salad and beans were very tasty with our... More

I ordered the fish Taco as it was one of the specials and I like fish. Now fresh fish has no "fishy "taste to it all all and the older it gets the fishiness comes out. These were extremely fishy tasting I mean to the point of returning them. I ate a lot but not all of my meal and... More

We visited for dinner on a Saturday night and were seated immediately. Great chips and spicy salsa. We ordered the chicken fajitas and the Mexican chicken stew. The fajitas were a saucy style, not charred, but with good flavor. The stew was described as having juicy chicken thighs, but instead came with the same chicken breast strips that were in... More

My wife, three kids, my in laws and I visited in mid September. I work just down the road at Paypal, so I've visited several times. I've never been disappointed. The chips when you sit down come with a hot bean dip, salsa, and a "mexican" cole slaw. It's different and excellent. We showed up after church on a Sunday.... More

The food was good and it was real fast service. The chips were the best we have ever had. Salsa was great.

I have been eating at Azteca for several years but decided it's time to share my thoughts. The staff at Azteca are the best and I have been seen several employees there for several years. The food is good and it comes out quick. While it may not be the fanciest place in Omaha it is well kept and the... More

Cindy and I ate here for lunch and had mixed reviews. That is unusual. The service was terrific. We were greeted warmly, and seated promptly. The chips and dip were very good, especially the bean dip. The restaurant is very clean, and very open. The noise level was surprisingly ow for as many diners as were there. I ordered the... More

We found it to be far better than any fast food restaurant and relatively inexpensive. The décor seemed a bit odd but we were there for a meal.

They have put on a new coat of paint and a new ceiling. It will never be thought of as fancy, but the interior is much improved. The service remains outstanding. These folks know what they are doing, are friendly, and service is quick. The food is excellent. Great combo meals, good fish and shrimp options, and wonderful chile verde... More

This restaurant is truly a hidden gem. The decor is nothing fancy, but the food is out of this world! The portions are large, and the food comes out hot and fresh. I had a steak burrito, which can sometimes be tricky for me as I only eat really lean meat (I'm not a health nut, just hate animal fat!).... More
