“My kids and mine go-to place for Mexican”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

I always have the steak fajitas and they are always awesome. My "kids", now they are young adults, love the chicken enchiladas. And everyone loves the endless free chips and salsa.

“No flavor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

Pretty boring overall. Everyone seems to love it but when the refried beans come out as gray slop just dont do it for me.

“Pick their strong dishes.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2009

Azteca makes their own tortillas on site, and their slow-cooked meats are very well-seasoned and tender.

If you go with the chile verde or carnitas, you'll be a happy camper. Also, if you get a burrito, the carnitas or picadillo will be the tasty options.

I have my favorites at this restaurant, and they are consistently good.

Still looking for a good fish taco in Spokane.

“Five thumbs down!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2008

Although the service was adequate, the tall glass of ice water refreshing, and the cinnamon mint on exit tasty, the rest of the meal was dismal.
I ordered the sangria which looked delicious with all its garnishes, but was sickingly sweet, even after squeezing all the juice out of the lime and lemon wedges into the drink. The salsa tasted like a cheap jar version.The huge basket of tortilla chips that arrived initially were less palatable than the generic ones you buy prepackaged at any store.
I ordered a combination plate as did my boyfriend. Both plates were mounded with bland fare and everything even looked the same. Nothing colourful on the platters of food at all. We both stopped eating long before the plates were empty, and were not even remotely interested in doggy bags, despite my frugal nature.
I love Mexican food, and have eaten it at many restaurants in different cities and countries. This has got to be the worst meal i have ever eaten in a Mexican restaurant. Unless you want a huge meal of bland food, avoid this restaurant.
