Reading some of these great reviews has me contemplating trying the place again. My experience with El Azteca is an interesting one. While I was going to BYU in the early 1990's, a dear friend and alumni would take me out to dinner there on a regular basis for nostalgic reasons. I am a Mexican food connoisseur, so I started...

My first visit to El Azteca (founded in the 1960s, I believe) was 1985 when it was located south of BYU. It has since moved twice and is now operated by the very friendly son of the original owner. This is an exciting, family-owned restaurant that has a great variety of traditional favorites and new combinations. Always great, good quality,... More

When you walk in, the restaurant has fun, colorful décor. You pick up a menu and then order at the register. They have traditional Mexican food along with some unusual variations of traditional food. For instance, I ordered grilled salmon enchiladas. They were served on small bed of lime spinach. They were very tasty, and the presentation was very colorful.... More

I have been going to El Azteca for many decades, The current owner is the son of the founder of the restaurant from back in the 60's. This is a great place for Mexican food for both authentic and "gringoized" food. I really love the traditional fajitas with corn tortillas. The tortillas are home made and amazing. When I told...

This place has pretty good Mexican food, but isn't anything spectacular or out-of-the-ordinary for Mexican cuisine. Their food doesn't have much flavor compared to other Mexican restaurants. They're also quite skimpy with their toppings and make you pay extra if you ask for more. However, their unique, homemade salsas are the best thing there and all taste amazing. I'd recommend... More

My friends and I went there to give it a try and we weren't disappointed. Very reasonable price and huge portion sizes (my fajita burrito fed me for three meals), and on top of that that it was very delicious food. I recommend this place to everyone!

Taquitos. Salsa bar. Horchata. All delicious and authentic. This family-owned restaurant has been a favorite for years. Long May they reign!

This is our favorite place to eat! The salsa bar is amazing! You really should try the french fries with the pineapple chipotle salsa. You'll love it! The fish tacos are delicious, as is the torta. Really I can't say enough good things about this place. I could recommend so many menu items! The chimichanga is great as well!!

How can you beat it? El Azteca has better Mexican food than I had in my extensive travels since childhood throughout the country. The place is fun, clean and has a tasteful mix of music. Especially recommend Raquel's breakfast torta-a Mexican breakfast sandwich with the perfect combination of ham steak, eggs, a refried bean paste....lightly toasted so the textures are... More

I live in Orem but find myself in Provo a lot. I almost always stop at El Azteca. A few days ago the special was a combination plate with shredded pork taquitos covered with pork chile verde and cheese. Also served with lettuce, rice, beams, chips, and a drink. It was amazing and the best thing I've ever had there.... More
