This place doesn't look like much on the outside but the food and service are excellent. It is in a very old Long John Silver building and the parking isn't great but it is worth the visit. I love the chile rellanos, chicken flautas, chicken enchilada rancheros! Serving sizes are very large. They also have a small kids menu. Prices... More

Inexpensive. Delicious. Family owned and wonderfully authentic. This is not Tex-Mex, but real mexican cooking. Parking can be tricky, but this is one of those hidden gems to locals know and want to keep it that way. Great, great value-I've never had a bad meal here

This is one of the best Mexican places around. I love the chicken synchronizado. And I think they must put Crack in that white cheese sauce. Mmmmmmmm

Ray Azteca Authentic Mexican Restaurant, is anything but authentic, at least it wouldn't be in Texas. The enchilada was covered with some TV dinner looking sauce. The enchilada was also served on the same plate as the chalupa & taco. The hot sauce had less heat than Whataburger ketchup. The service was effective but can't say much more. I give... More

Ray Azteca is one of the best Mexican restaurants around. Everything we've had has been delicious. The prices, service and food are all excellent. It is small but I think that adds to the ambiance. The only drawback is they don't have a liquor license so if you are looking to enjoy a margarita or a cerveza with your meal... More

Great Mexican food. Inexpensive. Tried another Mexican restaurant in Butler but does not compare. The only downside is the facility is small and limited parking.

Plenty of authentic Mexican food to chose from. We all ordered something different, and it was all amazing! The price was right, wait staff was friendly! The place was clean. I do not recommend going on a Sunday between 4 and 6...it seems to be their busiest time...I highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the mood for some... More
