“Awesome Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

Recently went in with a large group on business and left quite pleased, and full. The food was fresh, the taste had a home cooked meal feel, and service was excellent. Be sure to try the freshly made guacamole.

“La mejor comida, nunca!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

La mejor comida, nunca! … The best (Mexican) food, ever! The freshly made hot nachos with two sauces tantalized our taste buds. My Lady ordered Burrito Azteca (One burrito stuffed with shrimp, chicken, topped with mushroom sauce, avocado and sour cream. Served with rice and beans and coleslaw). I ordered Camarones Mexicanos (Large prawns sautéed with butter, mushrooms, onions, green peppers and blended with tomatoes, herbs and spices served on a bed of rice with melted Monterey jack cheese and garnished with avocado and tomato. No beans.) My Lady and I agreed that these were the best Mexican dinners we’ve ever had. Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! The service, however, was average.

“Very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Azteca is my choice for Mexican food in Charlotte. Since I worked around the corner, we ate here
frequently. The parking lot starts filling up before 11:30 a.m. and it's hard to get out but the food is worth it. Come very hungry, because you get a lot of food. I recommend the pork carnitas. The meat is tender & moist and comes with beans, rice, lettuce & tomato. Their fried chicken
chimi is pretty good as well.
The only down side I encountered is when they are really busy, they forget to bring you drink refills and sometimes the kitchen gets backed up and service is a bit slow.

“Recommended restaurant! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Pulling into parking lot, restaurant seems to be connected to Days Inn Hotel. Definitely not your typical "hotel" restaurant food. We were very impressed when we walked in, greeted and sat at a booth right away. (Fairly busy night too). Server was at our table quickly to get drink order and introduce herself. Next thing we knew, a nice lady came to table to offer "table side made" fresh guacamole. Definitely was fresh and would come back just based on the table side guacamole. We had the Super Nachos and Burrito. Holy cheez!! Chips were thick chip so they still have a crunch all the way through. Burrito was definitely filled to the capacity with beef and everything tasted fresh. Did find it strange to find out that they use orange cheddar cheese verse the traditional white cheese. For dessert we ordered the fried cheese cake. Very good and home made tasting. Would definitely recommend this place for anyone visiting in the area. We are here in Charlotte for Carowinds overnight stay. Always a good sign is when you see the type of ethnic people eating at their own type of cuisine. Atmosphere is soothing and offers patio seating.
