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.

I took my daughter and her sorority sister there for dinner and the delicious chips and salsa were brought to our table right after we sat down. The menu is quite extensive and our server was very patient as it took awhile for us to decide. I was told that the margheritas are to die for so I had to... More

We ate here while traveling, on our way to NC. It's located in Ashland, right before Richmond, off of I-95.There were 9 of us and we were looking for a decent, local place that would please *most* of us (we had 5 teenagers in our group!). We read the reviews and decided to give it a go. It's a little... More

When we moved to Virginia from Arizona, we thought we'd be without the delicious authentic Mexican food that is so easy to find in the Southwest. El Azteca to the rescue! The food was every bit as good as a restaurant in Phoenix and the staff was great. Keep that chips and salsa coming, boys!

I would say best in town, but I don't really thing there's any worthy competition in town. El Azteca wins, hands down within a 20 mile radius. The service is always fast and friendly and the food is great every time! The staff goes out of their way to make sure that even the littles guest at a table are... More
