Just another chain restaurant. The food is ok, service was not. I'd eat there again but wouldn't be my first choice.

Delicious! I have been several times to Plaza Azteca & they have always prepared great meals! I recommend the table side guacamole made right at your table! The only negative for me would be their margaritas. I LOVE margaritas & theirs seem to be made with a mixer instead of freshly squeezed limes. But overall a fantastic place to grab... More

I was looking for a local Mexican place to eat and several local folks pointed me here. I had a business colleague along and we both found the place to be a find. For starters we both ordered a frozen margaritas and then had them make fresh guacamole table side. For dinner I ordered fajitas (beef, chicken and Chorizo) and... More

We went to this place not long after it opened, not great. As it's on Rt 29 as we travel through Virginia, it's handy. This time will be my last, though. First, the waiter must have just arrived from his native Mexico and could not speak an understandable form of english. It was very difficult to have any questions answered.... More

If you like Mexican Food this is about the best place in town. The portions are very large so the value for your money is excellent. They even make guacamole at your table which is a treat to watch and then eat.

They started off extremely efficient. Food was fast, delicious and a great value. A year or so later, very poorly managed. Was great but now is just mediocre at best. Staff is non-attentive. Can be fixed with a crack of a whip and better management.

The decor of Azteca promises a rustic and authentic experience, as does the menu promise a variety of non-standard Mexican dishes. Unfortunately, as kind and attentive as the waitstaff was, they cannot take responsibility for what came out of the kitchen. The dishes promised interesting flavours and combinations, but unfortunately the execution was shy of the mark: the pasta (con... More

Plaza Azteca is a winner for Cville (especially if you're stuck in traffic on Rt 29). One of the best perks is the burritos lunch menu, which gives several different types of burritos or fajitas for $8 or so. In fact, one of the beloved options is the Burrito San Jose, which includes mexican sausage and cheese sauce on top!... More

The fajitas are good here...and my friend loves everything in this restaurant, but I'm not sold on the place. Nicely appointed but the waiters are hit and miss (they can get too friendly with girls tables), and they don't have a basic chicken-enchilada in green salsa dish, and they do not have authentic Mexican desserts. "eh"

We are dinner here while on vacation. The worst Tex Mex I've ever eaten. The only thing I liked was the tableside guacamole. Would never go back.
