I had gone to El Azteca for takeout. I heard that the food was good and it turned out to be excellent. It was both authentic and homemade. The beef burrito was the best I've had outside of Mexico. The chicken enchiladas were also very good. The salsa verde was delicious. The portions were large. Overall price to quantity of... More

Recently had take out at El Azteca. It has been there a while but we never tried it before. Wow, were we surprised. Much superior from the chain restaurant that we usually order from. Can't wait to try it again.

We found this authentic Mexican restaurant about 6 months ago and it is the real deal! Best Mexican food we have found since we moved back here to NJ. I love their tacos and the chicken quesadillas are a close 2nd!!

I go there once every few months for lunch as I don't work too far. Every time I eat there I am amazed. The restaurant is tiny. There are three tables and a few chairs at the window. Place is always packed, so if you want to eat in you may need to wait. Forget about eating in larger groups,... More

El Aztec is a wonderful little restaurant/takeout place. The food is fresh with traditional Mexican flavors. I always get the chicken burrito and Tostitas.

We stopped for lunch - just a few tables were available, but the short wait was definitely worth it. Food was served up hot and servings were large. Staff were attentive and pleasant. Would definitely go again !

My High School age kids turned me on to this authentic little Mexican Place. The owner is the friendliest, seriously he could not be any nicer. The food tastes like home cooking. The Chorizo and Carnitas Barrito's are the best. Great for lunch or dinner.

The restaurant has two tables, so you must carry out. The wait for the food is long. The food seems to be premade and taste like it, especially the meat. Will not be going back

Even my Dominican friend was impressed by the food. It's a small place and mostly take out but well worththe visit. They even have authentic snacks. Flan is great. Plantains, Tamales. Yum.
