A family-owned business, right down town, they are fairly busy all day. The food is tasty and hot, with a good selection of drinks, including adult beverages. Always clean and friendly.

Right down town with live music on weekends. A bit dated but nice atmosphere to hang out and enjoy an evening if you're into Spanish music and flare. Live band on this Saturday for dancing or just relaxing.

Carne Asadada dinner burrito was $15.99. $20.00 w/ tax & tip. You can get a better burrito for $5.00 elsewhere. Really you can .... More rice & beans than beef ... I will never eat here again.

I've been eating at the Emperador Azteca for over 10 years..., and they always provide excellent service, with the finest and fresh Mexican food... Unlike other Mexican restaurants who overcharge their customers with poor food and crappy service, the Emperador Azteca has a fantastic buffet...More
