“Best Mexican food in Roseville”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2009

We've been eating at El Azteca at least 3 times a month for almost 10 years (it's less than a mile from our house) and love it. Great food, fresh chips, and salsa with a pequeno bite. It does get crowded in the evenings, but order a beer or one of their humongous margaritas and relax with the chips - it's worth the wait!

Great food! Does get really busy and plan to stand in line or wait for table during peak times. They make some of the best Marqarita's in town!

“Make time to find this place - it's standout”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2007

This restaurant gets it right -- food is original, fresh & fabulously spicy! The ceviche and several shrimp recipes are way above average, and the chile verde is the best I've found in the area. Staff are as friendly & peppy as the music. The decor is upscale casual Mexican and it's a great place to sit. I bring my computer to work here during the day, and bring friends back for dinner and beers at night. Staff keep the dining area and facilities clean. There is a small bar with TV, and the tables can be put together for a crowd. It's seat yourself, so expect to jockey for a table at busy times. While you order at a counter, the service is several notches up from the usual taqueria. It's a terrific place --you've just gotta come see and taste this little gem.

“Great food, great prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2007

This restaurant is packed most of the time and for good reason. Once you find this place, you go back over and over. You wait in line to order, then the food is brought to you. So far, I have had all good food here, starting with the chips and salsa, to the beans & rice. They have nightly specials too like the Mexican Enchiladas which are superb. All the ingredients, ground beef, shredded beef, chicken, cheese, and carnitas are good...no need to worry about getting a bad meal here.
