Very tasty food at a locally owned family restaurant

This small restaurant in a strip mall on the side of the road, doesn't look like much from the outside, but once inside you will find the that the food is very good. The fish is fresh, the fajitas are hot, and the drinks are cold. Our favorites are the Burritos, tacos, trout and mixed Fajitas. The... read more

Love the burritos and fajitas! Great margaritas too. Staff is friendly and attentive. Food is delivered with little wait time. Free chips and salsa. Salsa is very good. Love the salsa and chips. My son had the Fried Ice Cream and it was very good. Nice place to have fajitas. Good prices too.

It won't take you to the Southwest, but it is better than most of the Mexican restaurants in this part of the world. Cheerful service, good salsa, and a pleasant, family restaurant ambience make the place a local spot to come back to time and again.

El Azteca is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants. Family friendly, great service, and tasty food. The queso is always a delicious start to our meals. The Fiesta combination fajitas is my "go to" choice, but you can't go bad with most anything. Not a big fan of the crunchy tacos as they tend to come out a bit soggier... More

The service was excellent and we were able to have a long and enjoyable lunch. A good choice whether you are a local or have to travel a ways to dine here. I will definitely return.

It started out as a very small Mexican restaurant in a very small strip of stores and from the beginning there were lines out the door. Luckily, they were able to expand and also created a cozy bar. The food is always good, the Margaritas are delish and the servers are friendly. All the favorite Mexican dishes can be found... More

The best of only a few choices in the area for a family meal. If you like Mexican food and are in the area, then it is well worth the visit.
