The portions were just right, and the plates were beautifully presented. Our server was very attentive and got right into the conversations when mom and dad... More

This restaurant was suck a disappointment. It did not taste like authentic Mexican cuisine. The ingredients were poor quality and I had to throw the food away.

Was just there for the worst Mexican food ever and the worst service I ever had. I ordered an Azteca chicken tortilla soup before my main dish and everything went down hill after that, first the soup came cold the bowl was hot but the liquid not, when I ask my server to re heat it she just gave such...

Looking for Mexican food... chose this restaurant because it was close... great find!!! Food was fresh, service was excellent and the atmosphere family friendly. Plenty of good freshly made food... we had fajitas, fresh made guacamole at table and one of their chocolate deserts!!! Wow all across the board!

We ate a fish/shrimp curry and spinach/potato enchiladas. They both were very good and fresh. The portion sizes were good too.

We always have to stop at Plaza Azteca for lunch when we are in OBX. Service and food has always been good. We typically have the burrito fajita, it is more than enough for two. Salsa and chips help round out our lunch. Stop in and enjoy.
