The food and service used to be good. Recently had dinner and asked for a booth. Even though there several open booths, it seemed my request was very hard to fulfill. It seemed I was bothering the server by asking to split a plate. We received chips/salsa but do even dare ask for additional chips. Was going to have dessert... More

Ate at El Azteca for the first time yesterday. First impression was that the decor is an upgrade from the usual boring decor at the other Mexican restaurants in our area. The regular margarita is actually quite large. It has a mild, almost fruity taste, also different from other Mexican restaurants. Chips were very good as was the accompanying salsa... More

We love this place and will go out of our way to eat here. Typical Mexican decor but the food is awesome, love the mushroom quesadilla! Flavored margaritas a big sugary and runny but the food more than makes up for it.

My family and I eat here once or twice each month and have never had a bad meal. We especially like the white sauce they bring you with the chips when you arrive. Not sure what it is made from, but it is a hit and greatly loved by all. The original interior design of the restaurant is very nicely... More

This is the best Mexican in Apple valley. The hand made guacamole is a must. It's fresh and made right at your table

We go here quite often and have never been disappointed. I see complaints about staff - I think some of these folks are straight from across the border. Nothing wrong with that, some just don't understand English well enough. My wife lives the white chip sauce. I can't get enough of the green hot salsa - if you like hot... More

Whenever we are looking for a quick meal, El Azteca is our first choice. Not just because it is fast, but we have never had a bad meal. The serving sizes are large enough that we typically split a chimmichanga. With the chip prior, we always leave satisfied. The best Mexican in the south metro!!!

This is one of our favorites. We have ordered many things on the menu. Favorites include: lobster enchiladas - great cheese sauce vegetarian enchiladas - one each of refried beans, mashed potatoes and cheese covered with cheese sauce One note of warning ... the chile rellenos used to be excellent and they have really been awful the last two times...
