I start my review slightly upset with Yelp itself. I see a "no stars" option? That's right. That's how i feel. My boyfriend and I went to this restaurant on Thursday the 1st of May, and were disgusted with the way things turned out. what started the incident was the bartenders (sitting in the bar) snarky attitude when he was...

I am picky about my Mexican food. Do I started off with chips and salsa..... Chips were just not good but the salsa was fresh. Next ordered a margarita and it was great! Ordered a chile rellano and the cheese was cold, and the chile inside was hard. Server was kind enough to give me a discount but I left... More

This restaurant is now Don Diego's Mexican Restaurant. It hasn't been Azteca since early 2013. The food was nothing special, even worse than when it was Azteca. The menu was basically the same, though. I have never seen it crowded and I pass by it almost every day. It is, therefore, easy to get a seat.

Decent Mexican cuisine with quite a diverse menu. Atmosphere was fairly basic and no real Mexican atmosphere to speak of. Prices were ok. Tones of rice and beans with the meal. Nothing something I would drive across town for.

I thought by trying a chain mexican restaurant, that the quality would be good - was I ever wrong. We stopped for dinner at the Azteca location on Northgate Way in Seattle, and this has been only of a few times, where I have come away dissapointed from mexican food. I started with a cheese quesadilla, which was quite paltry!... More

The waitress took for ever to take our order and when she did we had to wait over 30 minutes just to receive our food. We asked her for water and it took her 15 minutes to get it to us. Once we got our food mine was luke warm and didn't taste right. I ate it anyways and got... More

I never thought I would find good Mexican food in Seattle! This restaurant is nicely decorated, the wait staff is terrific, and there is a huge variety on the menu. They serve an appetizer called Mexican pizza. It has meat, beans, cheese and is piled high with fresh tomatoes. Easily serves three for dinner.

I would say pricing, service & atmosphere were about average with your usual Mexican restaurant. I did quite enjoy the food. I wouldnt say it blew me away, but I did enjoy it. I rate it a bit above most other Mexican places I've had while visiting the Seattle area. I would visit again!
