I’ve had lunch at El Azteca many, many times. It’s one of my favorite stops when in Ukiah, California. The food is always good. BUT the service while quick and efficient, is always unfriendly. Not rude, just indifferent, unsmiling and cold. The same 2 fellas...More

I love all of the food here. The salsa and beans are amazing! You can order you food how you like and it's not a problem. Yum! Yum! Nice patio for outdoor seating as well.

Nice little restaurant on the south end of town. Have eaten there several times, not fancy inside. Everything I have ordered has been excellent and the service is very fast. The salsa is also very good. Prices are very reasonable.

Good, authentic Mexican meals. Friendly staff. Good-sized potions. The best alternative is the lady outside at the supermarket across the street and a bit N who makes handmade corn tortillas and cooks tacos and so on outside.
