Used to be our favorite restaurant. Stopped in for supper. Waited ten minutes before the hostess said there were no tables. 1/2 the restaurant was overtaken with the employees kids. There was even an iron plugged in on one of the tables. Won't be going back.

Meeting a friend for dinner and wanted to try something different. Love Mexican food so thought Aztecas. I ordered a chili relleno, tamale and chalupa. When the food arrived I had to look closely to find the relleno. The tamale was bland at best with a few chunks of chicken and the chalupa was meh! The other party ordered the... More

I was in Duluth for business and after going to the mall, I decided to give this a try. The decor was very traditional with Mexican music playing in the background. The waitress took about 5 minutes to give me my chips and salsa and get my drink order. I ended up ordering the Fajita Burrito. The presentation was very... More

We have been here many times for lunch and have enjoyed it. In fact, I have given it very positive reviews. Not the case after today's visit at lunch time. Service was terrible, obviously understaffed. Food was not up to usual standards. Tasteless for the most part. Charged extra for salsa and peppers. Since they bring salsa to table automatically...

My husband loves eating here, and I really don't mind in the least when them mood strikes him because both the food and the drinks are wonderful. The food is fresh and good quality, and the burritos are stuffed with a ton of rice filler. If you go be sure to try one of their margaritas, they have the stand... More

My two sisters and I went here twice because the food was cheap! We had a coupon to buy one meal and the second free! The waiter, who had a hard time with English, never gave us that credit! Food and drinks not worth it!

Tried this restaurant for the first time today and was pleased. The salsa was good, fresh and mild. The chips were hot. Enchilada and burritos were good, pretty standard but good. The Queso was very good. Clean bright dinning area and friendly staff. This place will replace Lindos for me.

I hadn't gotten around to checking out this restaurant in Duluth, and in a very short time I have been there five times. Love the colorful atmosphere, the service and of course, the food! I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the dining experience, that I treated several people on multiple visits to dine there with me. The... More
