Always new menu items

This is a family restaurant. Yes, there is a bar in the back but it is small. The restaurant has a great atmosphere. Spanish speaking servers make you almost feel like your in Mexico. The chefs are always adding new items, while keeping the favorites. We had the favorite Burrito San Jose and... read more

I like this restaurant a lot. We always order the same thing, fajita for two and margaritas on the rocks, and we love it. It's a great family friendly place to eat and relax (if you like Mexican food).

El Azteca? Masculine pronoun? Feminine noun? Anyone? That said, many of the servers speak little to no English. I have no problem being an Am"BADAZZ"ador between Mexico and Apple Valley, MN, so that's all good. The food comes out in about 90 seconds...seriously. It all has that reheated sheen to it and looks prefab. No matter what you order it... More

Went there Monday around 2:00 pm. Husband had lobster enchiladas and me chili renleno & taco combo. Food was really good. Pretty spicey for mine but good. Chips were good. Had margarita's. 2 for 1 but not very good. Obviously not made from scratch. Would go back again. Best Mexican restaurant around apple valley mn.

My wife and I visit this restaurant about once a month. The food is always good and the service is great. I recommend it for couples, groups or families as we see all there. They have a friendly staff and a good menu selection. We highly recommend it.

First time at this restaurant, surprised at how well the food was prepared as well as the extensive menu, and we were there for lunch. The serving sizes were just about right but we still had enough left over to doggie bag home. The wait staff was very accommodating and took very good care of us.

We, four of us, went here last night for dinner. Bill was about $50 total. The portions are large and the service was justified. I myself, didn't much care for my meal. I ordered the lobster enchiladas. They weren't bad, just a bad choice of "nacho" cheese sauce on the restaurant's part. I think they would be more suited for... More
