Worth the search

If your going up or down I95, wait to have lunch or dinner in Ashland, Va. , exit 92. It's a little hard to find but "worth the search". Just drive past al the fast food places and turn right into a shopping center. I'll tell you this, the locals know how to find it. I stopped for lunch and... read more

Found this place while staying at the Sleep Inn in Ashland. We were greeted and sat in seconds. Our server greeted us in seconds. He was ready for our order when we sat down but we needed a few minutes. Came back in a minute and asked if we were ready---not yet. Came back one more time and we were... More

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
