great burritos

they have quite a few burrito selections. they're served with one chicken and one beef but you can adjust the order to just have one or the other. service is quick and efficient. their taco salad is also good. they serve lots of nacho chips and salsa - no limit - while you wait for your meal... read more

Dropped by here after a hike on My Nittany. Quickly discovered they didn't serve liquor but stayed anyway. Service was fast and pleasant. I ordered huevos con chorizo, which was supposed to be 3 eggs with chorizo, but what came out looked more like a pound of chorizo with some egg pieces mixed in. Still good, but not as described.

I have visited Rey Azteca on numerous occasions. I always order the #28. I have always had decent to good service and great food. I like that it is BYOB. I went to the Wine and Spirits Store located nearby and got the premixed margarita bag with a dispenser. We got glasses of ice and had Margaritas on the rocks!

So disappointed we chose this out of all the restaurants in SC. All I can say is that the good reviewers must like canned Old ElPaso:( No interesting spices, just TASTELESS!!! I do so want our non-chain restaurants to be successful! I can say it was clean. Service was efficient enough, (may be a language thing) but more blahhh and... More

Good Mexican food. This place has a nice atmosphere and the wait staff was great! It is so much fun to see the guys bringing 5 or so plates balancing on his arm.

No matter what time of the day or how busy this restaurant is, the service is the fastest, most efficient I've ever seen. The food is fresh and plentiful, and priced for families or people who like a bargain. But they don't skimp on the quality at all. Great food -- and amazing service. We were seated and brought menus,... More

Food is authentic Mexican. Loved everything except the chili rielleno - which does not have a batter coating on it.

We visited Rey Azteca by chance and were pleasantly surprised. There were authentic Mexican selections, not just the chain store Tex Mex dishes, (they're not bad either). We enjoyed the dinner and would go back if near State College again.

I highly recommend the Fajitas. They taste superb and come with a good quantity of food. The Fajitas for Two are an even better deal. The staff also helps to efficiently move things along so you usually don't have to wait a long time.
