Really good food and nice atmosphere. This is a locally owned and run business, which I like to support. This is a little gem in downtown Lawrence

Best place to eat in Lawrence , hands down. The food is authentic and so tasty. Try the sangria for a treat.

I like mexican food. Sometimes I go to On the Border and Plaza Azteca when a group wants to go there and thinks those chains are fine. I would rate Cafe Azteca, what looks like a hole in the wall in Lawrence until you get inside, at least two stars higher than those chains or anything else around. The meat is really good, I think they are very careful with where they get it and how they prepare and handle it.

We have been coming here for years and wouldn't go to any other Mexican Restaurant. The staff is friendly, service is very good, food is wonderful...always prepared fresh and don't forget dessert - the Kahlua Flan is the best!

I have been going to Cafe Azteca for years, usually at lunchtime. They were featured on a local restaurant show and the owner made his signature dish, pork with pablano peppers and a cream sauce. This dish was off the charts. Just enough heat to know it was Mexican but not enough to overpower the dish. The pork was tender and tasty and the sauce was excellent.
