I love Rey Azteca more than I probably should. If I could eat here every night, I would. The ambiance mixed with the food, makes for a wonderful meal. From their appetizers to their combos and dinner entrees, you can't go wrong. I usually order the Pollo Crema which always comes out hot and delicious. My boyfriend gets the pork... More

AFter my favorite restaurant shuttered it's windows, Rey Azteca has become my new "go to" place to eat out. We went on Mother's Day this year, and while the place was busy, it wasn't too crowded. The four of us had a variety of entrees, but I stuck with my usual fajitas platter. Now, in the past I've seen the... More

We tried Rey Azteca for lunch, and were really glad we did. The restaurant is really clean and colorful, the staff was all very attentive and pleasant, and the prices were super reasonable. The menu was pretty basic Mexican, but the food was all very fresh, very tasty, and good portions for the price. All in all, we were very... More

My wife and I ordered take out after church on Sunday. The food was excellent. My wife ordered her favorite, Burrito Cancun with rice and beans. I ordered the Enchiladas and beans. We also had chips and salsa. We didn't have to wait long and the food was hot when we ate at home. This is one of my wife's... More

No liquor license, just an FYI. We stop at this place often. It's always solid but not great. The service is very good and they bring the food fast so this is a good place to stop when you are in a hurry.

We came for dinner for my sons birthday . I have to say I had lunch here sometime ago and it was much better than dinner , not sure why . The portions were small and really not that flavorful. Everyone seemed very rushed, maybe it was a bad day. The decor is beautiful here and it would make a... More

Stopped here for dinner with my family while road tripping across PA. They do not have a liquor license, but are Appling for 1. Big menu, fresh food, for a cheap price. Service could have been faster.

Although I am giving it a good review, let me say that if I was asked for a review 20 years ago, I would have given it a top review. I used to go to Mother's many years ago. I then moved away. During the summer, I drove in the area and had to stop by. It was just as... More
