After a day of travel the family needed an easy place to dine and relax. The restaurant is convenient to campus and nearby hotels. When we were there it was not very crowded and the restaurant is spacious with many tables. I can imagine that it can become very crowded and busy and based on other reviews, that may affect... More

Ate there after a Pro Frisbee match in College Park. Standard entrees presented well in a shopping center restaurant kind of experience. The entrees are served without a lot of seasoning, but they will be happy to supply you with various degrees of "heat". Unfortunately at lunch time they had a very loud entertainer playing a synthesizer.

We ate at Azteca Restaurant on a Tuesday night. We arrived early and were one of maybe 4 tables full. There were two waitresses overseeing these 4 tables. I don't consider myself a demanding but when I asked for a refill on my water, it took more than 10-minutes and it was after our food came so I either had... More

Kinda average Mexican place. Lots of selections on the menu, but nothing really stood out except the Margaritas

We started off with the camarones al ajillo and guacamole dip as appetizers. The guacamole was obviously homemade and fresh. It tasted so good. The shrimp were full of flavor and just enough as an appetizer. We ordered the fajitas aztecas which comes with beef, chicken and shrimp as well as all the trimmings. The chicken was my favorite from... More

Wow this is a great restaurant. It's in a former credit union building and there's plenty of space and light. The atmosphere is upscale-comfortable. The service can be a smidge innattentive, but...we came there for a Sunday lunch fifteen minutes before the brunch buffet was due to be taken down; they offered to keep it open as long as we... More

Have been to this fabulous restaurant a number of times, including on Cindo de Mayo, where they were very crowded. The service is always terrific, even when extremely busy, which is always a good sign of terrific employees and great management. The food is awesome, the drinks great and the salsa superb! I highly recommend this fantastic restaurant in College... More
