We love this restaurant and their other restaurant , the Cantina. The food is great, good selections, and the staff are so nice. They catered our 50th anniversary celebration and everyone loved the food.

Rey Azteca has exceptionally friendly staff. They have an extensive menu with selections for everyone. One very important thing is that the restaurant is open late, which makes it great for someone looking for good food (not fast food or Denny's) after 9:00 pm.
