I love going to Azteca for dinner. They often have email or coupon offers, too. My favorite is anything they make with shrimp and the wonderful guacamole and the cheese dip. Reasonably priced and great service.

When Azteca first opened the food was fairly good. After the last two visits it is apparent something has gone terribly wrong. Chicken taco salad wad a liquid mass of something that resembled pot pie filling, the beef taco had no flavor. The rice was dry and dead. The nachos were covered in a soupy sour cream mess. The pork... More

Best authentic Mexican food in town. I've tried quite a few things off of the menu and never been disappointed yet. We like Mexican and this is our favorite place to go. Love the salsa & chips. good service, decent prices.

Went there with my mom some time back and had decent Mexican food. The inside was pretty nice as well. Good service.

My wife and I recently visited Azteca Mexican Restaurant for her birthday dinner. I've never been a big fan of Mexican food, although my wife enjoys it a lot more and regularly had it when she lived in Georgia. We arrived around 5:00 p.m. on a weekday and were seated right away. A bowl of tortilla chips and salsa (no... More

Already reviewed this on TripAdvisor. So just go to that site and you can find my review. In fact, since I already gave it a great rating there, not sure why it was on this list again.

I hate leaving less than stellar reviews.....but I guess reviews need to be honest opinions or else they are meaningless for others to read. My wife and I dinned here a few days ago for the first time. The atmosphere was nice enough....but a bit to wide open (not a cozy feel which we personally enjoy when dining out) for... More

Thier salsa is the best and enjoyed the margarita. The atmosphere is nice. Wish they had some music playing instead of a nba game on tv. The food was warm not hot on my plate. On my Gf plate the food was cold. The portion sizes have decreased less cheese baby tacos. The rice is terrible n the beans were... More

I never thought I'd find good Mexican food in Duluth, but Oh My Gosh! This place is phenomenal. Everything I've had here has been great. If you haven't tried the chorizo with peppers, onions, tomatoes, and beef, you MUST try it! Unbelievably good! I can't get enough of this place!!!

Wonderful variety of home-made sauces on dishes. Everything tastes very fresh. The extensive menu had lots of the typical and some non-typical choices. I love their #5 Enchiladas mis Primas (3 cheese enchiladas toped with slow-cooked pork and grilled vegetables). My husband loves their #61 -Shrimp, chicken, steak and Chorizo cooked with onions, green peppers,tomatoes. Topped with mozzarella cheese. Service... More
