I stopped in for lunch with my father in law and husband. We were all very pleased with our food. The service was great as well!

My family dined at Azteca this past week, They had specials on Margaretta's and they were very delicious and refresshing. The Table side Guacomole is the best in Charlotte. You get a very large portion with two advocados for less than $10. The Fajitas are also very hot in tempetature and delicious. We ordered the shrimp and steak combos. Service... More

I'm a pretty harsh critic of restaurants, so this review shouldn't be taken with a grain of salt. This place was really good; food was fresh, massive burrito in a huge plate full of rice and beans, and its taste was great. One of the best tortilla chips I've had with a great salsa. They also give you an extra... More

My wife and I ate here for lunch. We could not have been happier. The service staff was excellent and our food very good. One thing we noticed -- locals appear to really appreciate the place.

We stopped in on way home from DC to have something more than fast food and different from home restaurants. Our food was above average, slightly different menu than small Mexican places. Prices could be lower, but you pay for the atmosphere. Will go again.

The food was delicious. The chips, cheese and salsa were very very tasty and the beef fajita was a delicious choice.

We were looking for a place not too far away from the Charlotte airport--something with tasty food that wasn't too fancy. Azteca fit the bill. When we drove up, we realized it was part of (or adjacent to) a Day's Inn, and that turned us off a bit. However, we shouldn't have been concerned because the place was quite good.... More

The reviews I read states that this place is well above average. It's average. Huge menu. Margaritas are good, but it's the same batch that everyone serves. Chips are good. Salsa ok. Cheese dip was good. Fajitas were unimpressive. No sizzle. None, what's with that? Meat was very overly marinated. It's fine, but seemed like option were plentiful and will... More

We met business associates here for dinner. The service was pretty good and the food was excellent. Everyone enjoyed their meals and margaritas.
