This is close to my home so I really wanted to like it but the bottom line is that it's just not very good. I had "steak" fajitas and I kid you not that the steak pieces were smaller than my pinky fingernail and there wasn't much of it. The taste was bland as well. The salsa was also pretty... More

El Rey is the best restaurant in Mt Juliet. The staff is extremely friendly and makes you feel like family. The food is wonderful, portions are large and it is reasonably priced. We have been going there for over 10 yrs now and will not go to another Mexican restaurant!!!

I enjoy dining at El Rey Azteca, it's a local favorite! The staff is extremely friendly and always top notch when it comes to service. The menu is of typical Mexican dishes you find at most Americanized Mexican restaurants that is always very filling, not to mention tasty salsa. The cheese enchiladas are my favorite and the flan for dessert... More

We love to eat out! And besides Italian food, we love Mexican food. Mexican resturants are a dime a dozen in Nashville and surrounding area. But hands down our most favorite is El Rey in Mount Juliet. We have been eating there for over 20 years. It's friendly and safe place to eat and you always feel so comfortable there.... More
