Yes, this is tex-mex, and I love it. Go to the US Southwest or Mexico for authentic mexican and stick your nose up somewhere else. The staff is very friendly, portions are big, and the menu is pretty extensive. Also the place is I believe an old house, so the inside has pretty neat corners and seating.

We dine out often, sometimes every night of the week. Azteca has the best salsa (I like the red, my husband enjoys both) The chips are fantastic, the Azteca Fresh Squeeze Margarita is the absolute most delicious drink I've had...( I prefer 1/2 the mango syrup & an extra shot of tequila and a touch more lime juice) Chips and...

This is definitely an extremely Americanized "Mexican" restaurant. I had the combo and picked one burrito and one enchilada. The chicken enchilada had no sauce and was absolutely smothered in cheese. The steak ranchero burrito was flavorful but again had far too much cheese. We were given two types of salsa, one was red and supposedly hot and the other... More

My wife and I love El Azteca. The food is always delicious. It is the best Mexican in Fort Wayne and regularly wins awards in local voting. The service is always quick. You will never have an empty bowl of chips as they always keep it clean. Tasty enchiladas! The restaurant is fairly small which sometimes makes parties difficult to... More

We love Azteca! The food is consistently great, and the service is excellent. The new Margarita menu will have you coming back for more! Wow! I tried the Kiwi ones, and always liked them-but that Mango one-Delish!! Can't wait to try the Grilled Pineapple and Coconut! Yummy!

El Azteca has been around for awhile and is enjoying new management under the founders daughter Christina. The bar is a great way to get served quickly if you are over 21. There is a large selection of tequilas but the tap beer is served in chilled glasses and just too good! The food is Mexican with a tex-mex angle... More

My family has been going to Azteca for 20+ years. The food is always very good. Our favorite Mexican place. We generally order the same thing and I can say that they haven’t changed recipes which to me is a good thing. You can always count on great food at a good price. Some of our favorites are Cheese or... More

I was in the area for a few weeks for work and I made sure that I made a repeat visit to this restaurant. I love Mexican food, and El Azteca delivered. They have a fantastic selection of tequilas, and I got to indulge in some Don Julio. The margaritas here are among the best I have had. The meals... More

We love to eat here. But, don't get over there as much as we'd like. Someone always gets the mariachi salad, which is delicious. Or a benji. I normally get the chicken quesadillas. I'm not sure why their tortillas are so good, but they are. I'm not sure if they use a wheat blend or what. But, they are delightful!... More

Mexican is my favorite dinner, I frequent many restaurants in Ft. Wayne and have to say that over the past few decades, NOBODY compares to Azteca! They have extremely fresh ingredients, very friendly bartenders and staff, great food, and fun atmosphere! Have to try either black bean or fideo soup to start, I always like the nachos but have mixed... More
