Every time we come to the Cities we stop here for lunch. Have never been disappointed. Got there about 12:30 and it was packed. Even so, we were waited on right away. Fajitas, burritos, salad all were very good. Highly recommended!

This used to be a favorite place but today will be our last visit. God was ok but much more expensive than it used to be. Our son ordered Texas fajitas ($17.99)and asked for extra tortillas (was served four tiny ones with meal). Server said it would be an extra $1:25 for them - we said goodbye forever. No smile...

I absolutely love this El Azteca. The service is fast, but not talkative, which I personally appreciate. Don't think that means they're not polite. They are, and they seem very happy to be there, which ads to an already very warm atmosphere. My go to for food is the viking burrito, which is absolutely fantastic. The queso makes an amazing...

The menu has eveything thing our family wanted from tacos to pasta. The chips and salsa were yummy and they even had a fresh guacamole cart you could purchase. Our server was awesome and super funny. I tried something out of my comport zone, a potate burrito the flavor was great but the texture I wasn't a fan of. My... More

It is a rare restaurant that can combine great food, great service, at a reasonable price but El Azteca does it. I really enjoy going here whenever iIam in Apple Valley visiting.

We always enjoy our visits to El Azteca. The service is the best in the city - no matter what restaurant you might be sitting in. The food arrives fast, hot and delicious. In addition, the portion sizes are worthy for two people - especially after enjoying the unlimited chips and salsa that come to the table without asking. So... More

I ordered a small guacamole and bean burrito. The food was good but my waiter was NOT very attentive. When he took my order, he was looking at different tables and did not seem to be paying attention to me. Plus he never came by to ask me how everything was. I felt as though I was a bother to...

The food is good here but the service is horrendously slow. The restaurant was at about 40% capacity and we waited for 45 minutes just to place our order. Will definitely not be returning.
