My wife and I love El Azteca. The food is always delicious. It is the best Mexican in Fort Wayne and regularly wins awards in local voting. The service is always quick. You will never have an empty bowl of chips as they always keep it clean. Tasty enchiladas! The restaurant is fairly small which sometimes makes parties difficult to... More

We love Azteca! The food is consistently great, and the service is excellent. The new Margarita menu will have you coming back for more! Wow! I tried the Kiwi ones, and always liked them-but that Mango one-Delish!! Can't wait to try the Grilled Pineapple and Coconut! Yummy!

El Azteca has been around for awhile and is enjoying new management under the founders daughter Christina. The bar is a great way to get served quickly if you are over 21. There is a large selection of tequilas but the tap beer is served in chilled glasses and just too good! The food is Mexican with a tex-mex angle... More

My family has been going to Azteca for 20+ years. The food is always very good. Our favorite Mexican place. We generally order the same thing and I can say that they haven’t changed recipes which to me is a good thing. You can always count on great food at a good price. Some of our favorites are Cheese or... More

I was in the area for a few weeks for work and I made sure that I made a repeat visit to this restaurant. I love Mexican food, and El Azteca delivered. They have a fantastic selection of tequilas, and I got to indulge in some Don Julio. The margaritas here are among the best I have had. The meals... More

We love to eat here. But, don't get over there as much as we'd like. Someone always gets the mariachi salad, which is delicious. Or a benji. I normally get the chicken quesadillas. I'm not sure why their tortillas are so good, but they are. I'm not sure if they use a wheat blend or what. But, they are delightful!... More

Mexican is my favorite dinner, I frequent many restaurants in Ft. Wayne and have to say that over the past few decades, NOBODY compares to Azteca! They have extremely fresh ingredients, very friendly bartenders and staff, great food, and fun atmosphere! Have to try either black bean or fideo soup to start, I always like the nachos but have mixed... More

I love to eat local & spend my hard earned money supporting a local business. However, my last visit was a great disappointment. I have eaten here many times in the past & usually have an "good" visit/meal so I was looking forward to another "good" meal. Things didn't work out that way. We stopped in on the day before...

Sondra, I have had the opportunity to speak to the manager that was on duty and your server. I first of all want to apologize that no attempt was made by our manager to speak with you about your food. I agree with you 100% that this day and age we all work hard for our money and as a... More

The food was OK, it wasn't authentic Mexican food. However, the service was good and the staff is friendly.

In response to your review from last week. We pride ourselves on our unique style of dishes we offer on our menu. We do not claim to serve all Authentic Mexican recipes, however we do offer some traditional Mexican dishes on our menu. We make all of our sauces in house on a daily basis, from fresh ingredients. After traveling... More

We have El Azteca cater to us once a year at work. The service is spot on. They are punctual and never mix up our order. The chicken enchilada casserole, beans, and tacos are the favorites. Absolutely no complaints! Our workers love it and we'll continue to cater with them.
