This place has the best chicken tacos! They have a delicious salsa bar. The customer service is great. It's also always very clean.

We had arrived for a night stay in Orem on our way to Grand Teton and had come from Bryce Canyon. Found this place and the food was good and they were friendly asked where we were from, Scottish accent, and recommended going to Sundance, which is what we did the next morning, fantastic place. Friendly, excellent food and prices!

This is run by the same people that used to have El Azteca by BYU. The food is great and quick. They even have a drive through. We like to stop there when we are in a hurry.

I have really liked chili rellenos in the past, but I may not be able to order this dish again after the one I got here. I am sure that I am permanently put off them for a long time. The dish served with beans and rice was just wrong. very soggy and sloppily served. I should have ordered the... More

Not every restaurant has the menu items you wll find here. I have eaten almost everything they serve. Mole made from scratch, like everrything else is wonderful. I love the items from their salsa bar. They can do mild to spicy. The salads and greens are always fresh. If you want to experience fresh made mexican food from scratch, then... More

Everything served here seems like it was all smashed together. Weird stringy meats and limpid shredded lettuce.

I've been going here for years, including the old restaurant before it closed down. The finest mexican food around. Everything is made fresh. Their refried beans are the best I have ever had - in Utah or out. They are made fresh daily. Shredded chicken dishes are incredible, as are their shredded beef. Some favorites - tacos - come in...

The original El Azteca was opened as a sit down restaurant just south of BYU in the 1950s, but closed in the 1990s. This place serves the same quality food on styrofoam plates with plastic utensils at a good price. Their chips and salsa are famous for a reason. The whole family loves to go there for anything they make.

El Azteca has been a favorite of my family for years. It's cheap, authentic and delicious. They have a fresh salsa bar which I always enjoy. They also have a drive through, and it sure beats Taco Bell down the street. Yum!

I have never gotten anything to eat at El Azteca that I haven't loved. Almost tacky atmosphere, but kind of fun at that. We go so often the people that work there know us. (We go at least a couple of times a month). Great chips and DELICIOUS sauces - you can choose from many. It is self serve and... More
