My Mother in law and I went to dinner there. We ordered margaritas which were horrible so we left. My mother in law dropped an envelope with cash and when we went back to look they wouldn't allow her to go back to our booth claiming that she didn't leave anything there.

We had good food, but our waiter was very inattentive, seemed to prefer to be in the kitchen talking to his fellow workers.

My husband and I stopped here after going in circles trying to get to the nearby Olive Garden. Great detour - super good food and service. Excellent fajitas.

Myself and a couple of friends get together on occasion and seems we always agree to meet here. Aside from the always friendly and helpful staff the food is never a disappointment.

The speedy Gonzales (enchilada and Taco) was tasteless. The dessert was tasteless. The service was slow and took forever.

El Azteca is consistently good. Have never had a bad meal and have tried a dozen or so different things from the menu. Prices are very reasonable and portions generous.

The servers are a delight, the food is very good - love the home-made chips, salsa & bean dip w/ chorizo, and the selection of beers is nice.

Stop by for a business lunch while in town. This was one of the best Mexican lunches I've had in a long time. I loved the chicken lite meal. Great salsa and bean dip. Great service, friendly place. I will definitely stop by again the next time I am in town.

Four of us went here for late lunch and the service was great but the steak fajita was tough. We were here years ago and it was perfect then

Arrived about 6:00 pm for dinner with my brother in law for his birthday. Got right in, nice table, chips and salsa were to come very quickly. Very large menu, so there's something for everyone. Had a very nice waiter, and checked on us several times. Food was cooked just perfect. Everything was very good. Will be back for sure.

Thank johnsford
