We ordered the guacamole which was creamy but good. Huge portions: burritos are giant! The Fat Alex was amazing - the steak was tender! My daughters Chicken Burrito was huge and she enjoyed 1/3 and brought the rest home. My husband's Enchilada's Verde was delicious with just the right amount of heat. Now we have lunch for tomorrow! Service was... More

You can't beat the Margaritas, especially the daily special. We went on a Saturday night with reservations for 4.

Tonight's dinner was at a Mexican restaurant we have tried before. Tonight, it was excellent. The guacamole was fresh and abundant. Our cocktails were bright and delicious. Dinner was even better.

We are new to the area and our sons were craving Mexican food. They LOVED it, and so did me and my husband. The burritos are huge so I got the mini. It was even too much food! Delicious. We will be back again.

Cool place to hang out and get ur drink on if that's what u are looking to do but the food in my opinion was below average. El Azteca in Marlton blows this place away only thing is they don't serve alcohol
