There was a time I would have highly suggested Aztecas - very authentic, but with new ownership too much has changed. The food is average. Nothing to hate just not the quality it once was. Margaritas are OK but still not what they used to be. But with the limited choices for authentic Mexican food in the Duluth area it... More

Best prices you will find in the area. Food was hot and delicious. The guac was very fresh and the service was nice. Mostly for people looking for a great bang for your buck

First time I have eaten Mexican and didn't like it . Salsa is awful . Thinking it's the same sauce they put on most of the food . I've eaten there 8 times amd tried different food and still don't like their food. I will never go back .

I found their menu to be the same as Don Pedro's in Dickinson, ND. Their enchiladas even have the same stripe pattern of cheese on top. I am forced to conclude that they get delivery of prepackaged meals from the same company. Then they simply microwave them. The ones in Dickenson were still cool in the middle. Does anyone know...

The food was amazing. The service was super slow. Margaritas were strong. The lighting was way too bright. It made it feel not inviting. I will definitely be back BEST MEXICAN FOOD IN DULUTH.

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
