“Haven for Authentic Central American and Mexican Fare!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

Ever since our good friends went to Nicaragua for mission work, we had heard about this dish by the name of "pupusas". Our friends always raved about them, they had a little place there that served them that was originally a type of chain from El Salvador, where the pupusa hails from. We'd always wanted to try them and one day we were with some friends from the Rosenberg area and were telling them about this dish. They told us about La Azteca, so we gave it a try. Like the old saying goes the rest is history. This is probably one of our favorite restaurants EVER! Everything about this place is authentic, it's like actually being in Mexico or Central America. That being said, this place isn't for everyone, like I said this is real authentic food from the old Country and if you come in expecting Tex-Mex, you're gonna be let down. We've had mostly the pupusas revueltas which are truly decadent. Imagine melted mozzarella cheese and tender, seasoned pork meat in a crisp pocket of grilled masa. Truly amazing. The curtido, which is a vinegary type of cabbage slaw, is served along side the pupusas as a relish, and what a relish indeed! We've tried a few other dishes as well, when we can manage to tear ourselves away from the pupusas. The cheese enchiladas are great and I've had a really good dish called the Tejano Chicken Breast-very cheesy. Both salsas served on the table are definitely worth it, too. Watch the green sauce, it's nuclear. The red salsa is mild and dips with chips quite well, even if it is a little on the thin side. Don't expect to be bowled over by the decor, come for the food and you won't be let down. They are open late most nights, which is a plus for some.
