Homey with attentive service

The Azteca specializes in Mexican comfort food. Big platters of it. With the typical sides of beans and rice (although you can substitute a salad on most plates). There is a huge menu. The food is good, but not amazing or memorable as the best Mexican food you'll eat. But the Azteca does a... read more

We find that we only go to Azteca when we do not feel like driving very far from our home. It is the same on each visit. Service is very good, food acceptably good, but just average and cost reasonable. Not the best and not the worst. Azteca has been in business for a long time. When originally opened we... More

I have eaten here before and the food was better. The last time I was here, about two years ago, I had the Chile Verde which was spicy and cooked to perfection. You can obviously tell that this is my favorite Mexican...... The nachos and dips were good but this time the Chile Verde was a terrible disappointment. The tomatillo... More

We had a family reunion of sorts and my brother suggested Azteca Mexican Restaurant in Burien, Washington. The physical building was very clean and well maintained. The food was great-tasting and was served hot. The Margaritas were good and frequent..they DO check ID's so don't go there under age and expect to be served. The staff was there before we... More

This used to be a great place to eat but it seems like something changed. I have noticed the food getting progressively worse and I will never go back. The staff is terrible and I will be surprised if they are open much longer. Save your money and go elsewhere.

We have eaten at several of this chain restaurants. We get the Fajitas which are excellent. I get chicken and like it very much. Hubby gets beef and he enjoys that too! We have gotten the combo plates and they are good. Service is very good. I also love the tortilla soup! It can be a meal in itself! The... More

Being from Arizona it's hard to find a Mexican Restaurant without making comparisons and thinking only our food is the best on the planet. But all that said we had a fairly good dinner at this establishment. I usually judge right away by the chips and salsa or hot sauce. Surprise, they were warm, crisp and just right, the sauce...
