Another meal that satisfied.

Since Ruby Tuesday left town (State College PA) Rey Azteca has probably become my new second favorite dining spot (Bellefonte Wok is #1). I'm boring, I know, so I almost always get the sizzling fajitas. Well, I tried something new this turn. It was still very good, but there were way too may... read more

This place is terrific. If you speak Spanish, it's even more fun. The lunch deals are tremendous. There are some decadent dinner dishes too, and the kids menu is just good enough to keep the finicky eaters happy. The chips and salsa are free and unlimited. Their fajitas for two are almost enough for three. Once you've eaten here a... More

When I am craving Mexican style food, this is where I head. I have been to other places in town and they just don't compare. I have not had a bad dish and enjoy every bite. The chili con queso is by far my favorite thing there. I am not sure what they do to the cheese on that, but... More

I love to eat at this place. Food is fantastic, prepared well & served hot. The decor is very festive and also clean. The only issue is the staff is as authentic as the food, and therefore there is often a miscommunication. If you are asking for any substitution or change from what is on the menu then be very...

We live 35 miles away & always like to eat at Rey Azteca when we're in the area. The restaurant is always clean, they seat you quickly, and the food is fresh & good. They have an extensive menu of authentic dishes & everything we've eaten there was very good.

Phenomenal, best Mexican Cusine ever served to me! I highly recommend it! Taco salad is my favorite and I always recommend their fried ice cream!

For lovers of authentic Mexican food, Rey Azteca is a great choice in the State College area. For those looking for a great lunch spot with quick service from a friendly staff, Rey Azteca would fit that bill as well. With a solid offering of lunch specials, there is plenty of simple combinations to choose from. However, if a more... More

This is a really big restaurant with a lot of seating. It is fairly priced and is a nice meal if you don't want to mess with going into campus town. This is in a nice strip mall and is well decorated. Menu is large and their fajitas are a nice size.

Tried this place for the first time with family while visiting State College. We had heard it is family friendly and that the food was good. Very pleased on both counts. I had the camarones chimichanga and others at he table tried various other dishes. They were all swerved very quickly and very hot. The children's menu offered great selection... More

We were there for a business lunch and everyone really enjoyed their meal. Chips and salsa to start and then lots of authentic Mexican choices. It is in a strip mall area and could use some updates, but that doesn't take away from the food.
