Perfect spot for a luncheon. Right in downtown Dubuque, across from a parking ramp. Everything is fresh, and the bakery is top notch. No longer a wait staff, you order at the front of the restaurant. Eat in the restaurant , or out in the common area of the Rokusek Building.

Upon arrival, the decor was typical for an "authentic" Mexican style restaurant. The service was very prompt. The home made sangria is something that could have been made with better wine. The combination of cheap wine mixed with what I believe to be tamarind left a weird taste in my mouth. The food was amazing. I had the pollo Azteca... More

First of all I admit the food is good, just good not great. It might be the best Mexican food in Dubuque. If only they locate in Texas or Arizona, this restaurant might be dead. Customer service is poor. My friend ordered lunch but distorted the order a little bit then they charge for dinner price. Can you believe $17... More

One of our favorite restaurants to visit in Dubuque. Great deals on lunch menus, and fantastic dinner dining. My wife and I have been going to Los Aztecas for many years now, and have never left disappointed. The staff is very friendly and the food is some of the best in town!

Servers are very helpful explaining menu options, my food was appealing and tasty. My wife's meal was also appealing and the portions are large. We felt the prices were high for a Mexican restaurant but the service and the food is worth the money.

Ignored for the majority of the night. Servers were rude and failed to do their job. Food was mediocre. I won't ever be back. you can find better.

I'd like to start this review by saying that I've been to Mexico - and not just the watered down touristy portion either, the real cultural parts. So when I tell you that this place and, its food, and its service reminds me of Mexico, I mean authentic Mexico - not the Americanized version. The first thing that really struck... More

Stopped in recently for a great lunch. They offer any combination specials. You can't go wrong with anything. Authentic Mexican dishes served hot. Fast and friendly. Hot chips and great salsa.

Large portions at a good price. I would rate the food 3 out of 5 stars. Good for the budget traveler.
