Nice atmosphere, good food.

First impression: the outside doesn't look that impressive, but parking was good. Not many customers, but it was a weeknight, and late. Once you step in the door, it's like a whole different atmosphere. The backs of the booths and the chairs are hand-carved wood. Festive decorations everyone... read more

The guacamole is soooo good! They come to your table and make it right in front of you. Everything tastes so fresh. The margaritas are great too!!! It is a bit pricey though.

Food is always fresh & delicious. Fast service. A must try is the Enchiladas De Camaron for the shrimp lover.

The chicken and spinach burrito was delicious! The service was quick and friendly and the decor was very festive. Had visited here several years ago while in the area. Food was good both times.

Azteca offered fajitas with tortillas made right before you at a station in the dining room. Although I did not order them, they looked very tasty! Nice touch! Our meals were prompt and prepared as ordered. The pico de gallo was enjoyed by all. Only negative note was the salsa was a bit too sweet for our tastes!

Very good food. The service is excellent. You may have to wait for awhile, but the wait is worth it. I go there ever time I'm in town. I always enjoy my visit to Azteca.

The plates are huge, the food is delicious and if you like guacamole dip they make it to your personal specifications right at your table. A great place for a great meal.

I've been here plenty of times before, but decided to go with my boyfriend since it was his first time and I hadn't been in awhile. The food has always been amazing here. They give you unlimited chips and all entrees have huge portions. However, the service wasn't good this time. Our server wasn't the friendliest and definitely took his... More
