We had only heard good things but due to the place looking funky on the outside we were hesitant to give it a try. Upon our first visit, we were sold! Good food, really good prices and friendly staff. I highly recommend this place if you love Mexican, or even if you just like it, you will be happy you... More

We had read the reviews for Azteca's Mexican Grill and were looking forward to eating dinner there during our vacation in Duluth. We were looking for a quieter spot away from the downtown crowds. We started out with margaritas. I ordered blended strawberry and took just one sip realizing that something in the drink was off. My husband tasted it... More

I went to Azteca's during a recent excursion to Duluth. Based on reviews I was expecting the restaurant to be fantastic. This, unfortunately, was not the case. The menus had chip crumbs stuck to them, hair stuck under the plastic, and even salsa crusted to one of them. I couldn't bring myself to stay and eat food here. My party... More

The service could be more friendly and welcoming but that was soon forgotten due to the food being so amazing. The flavors and fresh produce brought out the quality in the meal. The menu was a bit overhwleming because it is HUGE! We went with the special "Cancun Burrito", and would eat it weekly if we could.

I don't eat Mexican food often but my husband loves to come here to eat as often as I'm willing to go with him. I think the food is good and the service and atmosphere is just fine. I just don't think it is special enough to make it MY favorite place. However, whenever our schedules make eating together an... More

Homemade salsa, warm chips, Jarrito's soda! What better! Non traditional Mexican food names, but traditional flavor! Chili Colorado verde is actually a guisada. Azteca's is a hidden gem!

Found this place while driving around by Miller Hill mall and decided to stop for lunch. Wow! Great décor and very nice staff. Lots of menu selections to choose from. Got a combination platter and was not disappointed with taco, enchilada and loved the chalupa as well. The fajitas also looked very tasty. Good portions for the price! Will definitely... More

Very good food. Lots of variety. Kind of Minnesota mild (could use more zing) but very tasty. Offers cocktails and wine too. Staff very friendly. WiFi available. Reasonable prices. Cheese dip excellent but a little thin. Lots of onions and peppers in Chimichonga. Would come back again
