Food was ok, service was below average. Manager would not honor local coupons in Travel Dubuque magazine. Try to try local going back to chains.

Prompt service and pleasant atmosphere started off the meal right. The menu offered many selections which made the final selection challenging. I must have chosen the wrong entree as it fell short of expectations, based on what I'd been told about the pkace as my dinner companions both stated the choice was outstanding.

I will admit, that I can't say I have ate at a Mexican restaurant that I didn't like. Some I prefer less than others, but this... More

Service was poor and half or more of the employees don't speak English. The only good part was the chips and salsa.

Even a chain like Chipotle does a better job of seasoning and marinating their chicken and pork than Los Aztecas. Don't get me wrong, it was not bad, just bland filler.... More

We are local and we usually find ourselves here once a month. We have tried many menu items and my favorite is the fajiitas, and my husband loves the seafood enchiliada! Great staff and great service! Price is great for the amount of food you get! Good kid's choices as well.
