Friendly efficient staff and a menu with a good variety. We are vegetarians so nice to have a lot of vegetarian options (mostly bean based). The food was quick to arrive and tasty. They asked how spicy we wanted our food which was a bonus. They were friendly to the kids and very accomodating on a busy Saturday night.

We went there for dinner as a very large group. Had a set menu with tasty nachos, tacos for entree, also 4 main to choose from, more food than we can eat which is not an easy thing to do consider there are only 10 females out of 44 in our group. The owner and his staff were very flexible... More

A good choice of mix and match mexican meals. Great value on the 2 for 1 night. Mexican beers and cocktails on offer to compliment the food. Great place for families or friends - large and small groups. Friendly waitstaff.

We dined with extended family on a table of 8 & the staff were more than accomodating. There were many others diners in the place & everything went smoothly. My guage of Mexican cuisine when I haven't been to a place before is to try their Chilli Con Carne & taco, this came as a combination with a side salad... More

I partook in the beef fajita's and came away thinking the best thing about the meal was the Dos Equis cervesas. Sad fact was that the fajita's were simply productivity line processed at best. Not sure where on the beast they got the beef from, but it was tough, without flavor and the meal devoid of the care and attention... More

Where to start. I looked at the menu and had a feeling it would be bad, but was unprepared for just how bad it was. When I looked at the reviews half way through waiting for our food I saw what I should have checked before sitting down. Run, far away from The Aztec. Bland, tasteless guac salsa and bean... More

Hubby and I were here earlier in the evening (trying out the restaurants in the area). We concurred with some of the previous reviews.. food was average but the service was good. Hubby said he wouldn't rush back in a hurry! 😅
