The burrito shell was surprisingly light. The refried beans were unique and tasty. The food arrived fast, but the server did not check back with us often. They serve alcohol, if you are in the mood for a margarita!

Stopped here for dinner, my friend and I ordered Fajitas for two. Was not disappointed, plate was piled high and sizzling hot. Very good taste and service was good. Would recommend if you like Mexican food.

A great place to dine for lunch or dinner! Good food and good service. The service is really good too. For authentic Mexican food, try it out. Close to lots of shopping too!

I probably get to Rey Azteca 1-2 times a month and have had a great meal everytime. Love the Pollo Adobe and Pollo Crema, Have had quite a few of their menu items and you can't beat the price or portion size. Have taken food home mamy times and enjoyed just as much for a second meal. They are generous... More

This restaurant is a little out of the way, but it has ample parking, seating, affordable food, and decent food. I went here with friends the other night and don't have anything bad to say about it, except I wish they had black beans on their menu as well.

I have eaten here many tea the last 4 years . The food is always good and they will make any changes you want to the entrees. The burritos , tacos and fajitas are great.

We were looking for a Friday night eat out spot before a Saturday game at Penn State. Trying to avoid the crowds, we found a nice little family outing. Food was good. Service pleasant and prompt. Atmosphere relaxed and family friendly.

Thank Lisa C
