I have always liked their food and we always have good service. My favorite is the Texas style fajitas and the chicken chimichanga.

I'm a fan of Mexican food, have had it many places. Suppose it's not the same in eastern TN. Price was fine, service was OK. Food is just average. Not a lot of choices in the area and I would return but not in a rush.

I have been to Azteca many times and it isn't bad but it isn't exceptional either. I always order a #23, which isn't terribly different than a #4 or a #19 or a #11, etc. El Corita, just down the street, is a much more authentic Mexican restaurant if you're wanting "real" Mexican food. If you just want a quick... More

This Monday my friend Lance from San Antonio and I decided to have a quick lunch at Azteca. We arrived at 12:30 and the restaurant was crowded. We were greeted and seated in the last available booth. Azteca is the only place in Erwin were you can have a beer with your meal. No wine, or bar but a good... More

Hadn't been there in a long time because they overcharged me for the second time in as many visits. But decided to give it another try, mistake-big mistake! It was around 8:15 and they closed at 9. We ordered 2 beef and chicken combined fajita salads to go, which according to the menu was supposed to have onions, tomatoes, rice,... More

Quick, easy to get to and lots to eat while hiking. Ordered from the menu and the food was there in less than five minutes.

The beer was cold and the delicious food hot. Decor is all but absent but it's a friendly place. The selections were fine: more beers than I ever heard of (I had XX amber) and a menu with almost any combination of Mexican dishes you can think of.

Not your typical Mexican place. Some esoteric stuff on the menu. Quick service and phenomenal value. can get crowded at lunch.

A very nice place. At here June 23rd, 2010 with a business associate. I the Polo Loco here was perfectly grilled chicken, cheese and rice served with flour tortillas, and it is one on my favorite meals in Erwin. Service was fast and friendly and nearly a gallon of drinks quickly refilled rehydrated us after a hot day working. I... More
