The food was very good authentic Mexican fare. Nothing extra, but better than most. Service was outstanding.

After almost 4 years of traveling the I-95 south/north interstate between Northern VA and Orlando, FL, El Azteca Mexican Restaurant was one of our favorite restaurants to stop at for a quick lunch or early dinner. The most recent visit was in mid-March. My friend and I ordered the fish tacos to share. Our entree came with a huge warm... More

Food is consistently good and the margaritas are to die for. Staff is so friendly and accommodating.

Good! Cheese enchiladas with pork especially good. Margaritas unnaturally green but tasty. Staff pleasant and quick. They were actually open until 10.

This was the most terrible "Mexican food" I have ever experienced! The only thing that saved it was they pour a generous shot..... Now I see why. I ordered chili relleno's that were menued as poblano pepper stuffed with cheese that would be deep fat fried and then covered in a mole sauce. We asked for some cheese dip for... More

I have been going to El Azteca for years, usually on Sundays after church and still love this place. The staff are friendly and remember me, though they are not the most fluent in English (which I think makes it feel more authentic). I love the burritos delux, and the lunch special (11?) where you get to make your own... More

We were greeted with "follow me" I asked if we could sit at a table instead of a booth and he flatly said "no" tables are for 6 booth is for 4. Mind you there was only 5 tables and booths occupied at the time so there was plenty of room. Keep your bad day to yourself and not take... More

Good food, friendly staff, good prices, generous serving, clean and festive. Although, I can not say that it tastes authentic because I have never been to Mexico. The staff is all Hispanic, so that helps ( for authenticity). They are also accommodating and can change the menu choices to suite and allergies or preferences. They have been in business for...

I have never eaten Mexican but some friends wanted to go here for a birthday party for another friend. Some of my friends had been here before. The place had nice décor though the place could use some sprucing up. It has been in business awhile but doesn't look maintained. There was a party of 10 of us and they... More

We hadn't been to El Azteca in several years and decided to give it another try a couple of weeks ago. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will be going back again.
