Went to another Mexican restaurant down the street first, but left when the menu had kale quesadillas- weird.

Stopped in at El Azteca and happy we found it! Margaritas are strong and yummy! Food was beyond amazing. I got the chimichanga and husband got Enchiladas Aztecas. Both were very good!

Service was great, very friendly, our waiter (Jason Beltrez). was the best!!! I will come here again (probably before I go home this week).

Went for a late dinner with my son. The food was good, nothing great or memorable. The service was friendly and good.

Arrived late without reservation but were made very welcome by the staff. The food is tasty but not very spicy. You have to ask the server to tell the chef to spice things up a bit. It says so on the menus, but isn't very clear. So if you like your Mexican food spicy, ask! Apart from that, the frozen margarita is one of the best I have had. All in all a good experience.

I am not a big Mexixcan but we had a coupon so we tried it. Service was excellent and explained the menu. Food was very good and the sangra was excellent. Will try again.
