Description: Authentic Mexican Food, Great Margaritas, Relaxed Atmosphere and Great for Families!! Established in 1997 We are the first Mexican restaurant in Mt Juliet, and won the best Mexican restaurant in 2012 for the Mt Juliet area. The restaurant has been under new ownership and management since 2011. The entire inside has been renovated with new lighting, tables, booths, and bar!In 2006 Memo started working at El Rey Azteca in Mt Juliet as a server and worked very hard and all customers wanted to sit his his section. They always said he's a mover and takes pride in his job. He always says " hard work pays off" and that it did. So when the opportunity raised for him to buy the restaurant he did. He has built a team that has the same thoughts " hard work pays off". We are blessed to have wonderful customers that now have become family.

The location has been well used for many years now...it's just an older plaza that needs some sprucing up. I'm going to say that this is our favorite Mexican food in Mt. Juliet. The best Margaritas, the best fresh salsa, and most definitely the best value. Check it out when you can.

This is the second time we ate lunch at El Rey Azteca and, once again, very good. Their complimentary salsa and chips are good, fairly mild but tasty. We ordered guacamole which was not as chunky as we prefer it but the flavor was there. The flautas are quite different and really delicious and the chicken quesedilla had an entire... More

The service is friendly and the food is very good. Portions are large and reasonably priced. Similar to food I have had in Mexico. Mexican atmosphere.

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
