My husband and I have lived in Idaho Springs for a little over four years now and have never really made a habit of going out to eat...mostly because my husband is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu and a culinary ninja, so we choose to enjoy our meals at home. One evening, however, we wanted to get out of the house for dinner, so we chose to give Azteca a try, and it is one of the best decisions we've made since moving to this little mountain community!!
We enjoyed that first experience at Azteca so much, in fact, that we have eaten there at least once a week, sometimes twice, ever since. First of all, the service is AWESOME!! You will be greeted with a smile and treated like one of the family at every single visit. The margaritas are INCREDIBLE. Give the homemade tequila a shot, literally!! The food...I don't even know where to begin...we have tried so many items on the menu and have never once been, even slightly, disappointed!!
This is a restaurant to which we have since taken every one of our out-of-town guests, and the experience is always raved about afterwards. Stop in Azteca, hang out for an hour or two, enjoy the ambiance, the company and the tequila!!
