“Loved the refried beans, everything good!”

Restaurant details
Reviewed March 6, 2013

We like to stay in Ashland on our way up from Florida and have done so many times. Twice now, we have eaten supper at the El Azteca Mexican Restaurant and each time it has been really good. The refried beans are just the best, really light and seasoned terrifically. I had the combo plate with a chalupa and chicken quesadilla. There was also Spanish rice on the plate. The chalupa was layered with refried beans, some lettuce and guacamole. My wife tried the fish tacos and they were really good. However, she is used to fish tacos in Florida were usually the fish in the taco is a whole piece of fish. In this dish the fish was cut in little pieces and mixed with some sauce, onions, etc. This fish mixture is served on the place with four soft tacos so that you can make your own. Everything was cooked just right and came out piping hot. We were quite satisfied. On the way out we saw one of the waiters taking stacks of menus and methodically wiping them down to keep clean. I am sure many other restaurants do this, but it gave a good picture of the attention to detail of this place.

Always great food - it's our "go to" place for great Mexican food even when we're in Richmond doing some shopping, we come back to Ashland for our Mexican "fix."

Went last year and liked it enough to come back! Like the unsalted chips and salsa. Finally a restaurant with fresh jalapeños! Fast service and they weren't hesitant to adjust the menu for the customer! Soft drinks in bottles!

Mexican food is one of our favorites so we were excited to find this restaurant on a recent trip to KD's. The restaurant was clean and the atmosphere was very nice. Our first waiter was abrupt and borderline rude but I guess his shift ended as he was replaced with another waiter who was very nice and accomadating. The menu offered alot of dishes for a reasonable value (some less than $5). There was nothing exciting or different on the menu though - just the run of the mill tacos, burritos, quesadillas, etc. Pretty much your standard mexican restaurant menu. I had the fajita quesadilla and my fiance had tacos. We both enjoyed our meal and had no complaints. Overall I would eat here again but if you're looking for authentic mexican food or something with variety you might be a little disappointed.
