Authentic and Awesome

They take jumbo shrimp, wrap it in bacon and cover it with melted cheese. I just can't imagine what you could do to create more deliciousness per square inch than that. Seriously, I've been there twice. It has a nice cozy, hole in the wall feel to it. Staff is friendly and efficient. I'll keep... read more

We stopped here for lunch a few weeks ago, when passing through Grand Junction. Service was vey quick and our lunch entrees were brought to us right away. This is our second visit to this restaurant and we will continue to recommend it to family and friends. I recommend you give it a try if you are in the mood... More

The best Mexican food we have all had. Kids loved it. We loved it. Carne asada, tres amigos, margaritas, churros - all delicious! Very friendly people working there. Worth any detour - short or long.

When we pulled up at this place I asked my wife to let me check Trip Advisor for myself as I didn't believe it could be one of the top restaurants in Grand Junction. On a busy road it really doesn't look like much and the greeting we received from the hostess was perfunctory. but after that everything went extremely... More

People are nice, service good, but the food is very very average. Really surprised given the ratings in trip advisor. last mexican restaurant we reviewed was in Solana Beach and it was head and shoulders better. It is not bad, it just is not good.

Staff are amazing, friendly, fun and very efficient. From the kitchen to the table, they pay attention to detail. My absolute favorite restaurant in town. Redlands Aztecas - #1.

We had a very good meal. Great service. margarita was soso. Good salsa. Would go again. We have tried to eat in only local places on trips, no chains. So you sometimes aren't sure, but this was a very good choice. the waiter was very prompt and noticed when we needed something. overall a great meal.

Most Mexican restaurants have the same basic menu. While Aztecas has the usual dishes, they also offer some different items not found elsewhere. The whole staff is very friendly and enjoyable. It's an affordable place to enjoy a good meal. Caution: Large portions!

My girlfriend & I had lunch and a margarita there. Lunch was done just right, and the margarita was excellent! The salsa could be a little more on the hotter/spicier side, but it was very good. For those who don't like hot, this is great salsa. The service was great and very friendly.
