The Azteca folks have their offices close by so this would be the place to "make it all happen". But the food is just okay. The bar is usually busy, but quite frankly I choose other Mexican places in Burien. I had their Blanco Burrito to try something different and it was fine. But nothing seems to be memorable here...

The food here is better than most Mexican style restaurants. Mostly typical American style version of Mexican dishes, and a lot better than the majority of restaurants advertising Mexican food. Portions were more than adequate, so if you are a light eater, or order an appetizer or salad, you may want to split a main dish. Fresh and well presented,... More

After church lunch with intown friends. Great Mexican Restaurant. Outstanding Enchilada with beans and rice. Add some sour cream and guacaole and you have a "light" but adequate Sunday afternoon meal.

We find that we only go to Azteca when we do not feel like driving very far from our home. It is the same on each visit. Service is very good, food acceptably good, but just average and cost reasonable. Not the best and not the worst. Azteca has been in business for a long time. When originally opened we... More

The Azteca specializes in Mexican comfort food. Big platters of it. With the typical sides of beans and rice (although you can substitute a salad on most plates). There is a huge menu. The food is good, but not amazing or memorable as the best Mexican food you'll eat. But the Azteca does a terrific job of providing attentive service.... More

I have eaten here before and the food was better. The last time I was here, about two years ago, I had the Chile Verde which was spicy and cooked to perfection. You can obviously tell that this is my favorite Mexican...... The nachos and dips were good but this time the Chile Verde was a terrible disappointment. The tomatillo... More
