We always enjoy our visits to El Azteca. The service is the best in the city - no matter what restaurant you might be sitting in. The food arrives fast, hot and delicious. In addition, the portion sizes are worthy for two people - especially after enjoying the unlimited chips and salsa that come to the table without asking. So... More

I ordered a small guacamole and bean burrito. The food was good but my waiter was NOT very attentive. When he took my order, he was looking at different tables and did not seem to be paying attention to me. Plus he never came by to ask me how everything was. I felt as though I was a bother to...

The food is good here but the service is horrendously slow. The restaurant was at about 40% capacity and we waited for 45 minutes just to place our order. Will definitely not be returning.

I have never been disappointed at El Azteca. They are in an unassuming strip type mall across from AutoZone. They are the best Mexican restaurant south of the River an I have tried most of them. The menu is comprehensive and has everything you'd expect. The staff is extremely accommodating and go out of their way to make sure everything... More

Finally...I love white cheese dip. You can't get it out west. El Azteca has it and it is yummy! The Baja fish tacos are great! The margaritas were perfection and the service was superb! Very warm and inviting place to tickle your Mexican food taste buds. We will return! 😀

We had not been here for some time and was in the area when it was time to eat. It looked full but there was no wait for a table. These people hustle and get a great turn around on tables, but do not make you feel rushed. My wife ordered a Seafood Chimichanga for $13.49 and I had the... More

Everything about El Azteca is 100% authentic. Beginning with the two different types of salsa and complimentary tortilla chips delivered tableside upon arrival, to the hot and yummy entrees available on the menu, you will not be disappointed.
