Disappointing. Hard to understand other raving reviews if any ever had really good Mexican food. We were there years ago and had the same reaction = overpriced and food nothing to write home about. The salsa had pretty good flavor, but was really runny. Refried beans were flat and soupy. Entres OK, but not really noteworthy and the waiter brought... More

We don't live that far from Azteca's original restaurant (they have two in GJ). We've eaten here many times over the years it's been open. So we've become friends with the owners, Miguel and Blanca, just so you know that going in. But I feel I'm being honest in saying this is a great place to eat. Most times either... More

Went to Azteca's in the Redlands and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the extremely friendly staff that works there. It has a great bar and great margaritas. Turn around time was very good. Would recommend it highly.

Great food, friendly staff but we always end up spending alot. A pitcher of watered down margaritas is almost $30. It is only like 1 glass shared by three people. We will go back next time we are feeling spicy.

I never went there alone: once with some Mexican-American friends and several times with a friend who is a green-card holder from Mexico (one of his grandfathers was the governor of the Estado de Juarez). All these people knew what real Mexican food tastes like, and they really liked this place; it was always crowded. I liked the food and... More

Very friendly staff. They have very good Mexican food and will accomodate special requests. If you want your order spicier, just ask. The Aztecas burrito is very large and is filled with pork carnitas, rice, beans, cheese and topped with green tomatillo sauce. Very tasty and filling. The enchiladas are large and offer many filling and sauce choices. Most entrees... More

Took a group of 12 co-workers to Azteca while we were all working out of Grand Junction Airport. I was taking a chance and going on Tripadviser reviews only. A bit of a drive and not in the best part of town but what great Mexican food. We tried most everything on the menu and everyone of my co-workers said... More
