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.

Dropped daughter off at PSU. In the mood for Mexican or Indian food. Settled on Rey Azteca out by the Nittany Mall. We hardly ever head in that direction. You walk in and see all this richly painted and shellacked wooden booths with Mexican themes. After a long day of driving and moving in my daughter, the frozen Margarita gave... More

The service was very quick, nachos and salsa was placed on the table as soon as we sat down. They now have their liquor license and they have a variety of Mexican beer and mixed drinks. The food was good and service was very quick

They have very good authentic Mexican food. For lunch, you can get in and out quickly and they have many tasty lunch combo's. They always keep your drink full and the price is very reasonable. Being in a strip mall, right off I-99 it's easy to get to and park. I hear they are getting a liquor license but don't... More
