One of my favorite lunch spots. One of the best Mexican restaurants in Gastonia. Love the cheese dip!

Ate there for the first time September 11 and enjoyed the food. Had more than enough so had leftovers for later. The staff were very helpful even with my disabled husband. Fixed him a special grilled cheese sandwich. Great place to celebrate with family and friends.

If you are interested in receiving decent service then don't bother with this restaurant. We ordered a nachos platter appetizer with a comment that we may want to order something else depending if we were still hungry. We ordered the white cheese nachos and requested jalapeños on the side. Never got them. The chips ended up soggy in a pool... More

I was in Gastonia visiting family and decided I wanted to check out an authentic Mexican restaurant. Unfortunately, I was very let down by Azteca's. The service was very slow to start, and completely dropped off from there. After the food was delivered, the server literally never came back one single time. I didn't receive all the items I wanted,... More

Had a gift certificate for this place ( I'm glad the certificate was free) we had the lunch buffet. Not a lot of choices, most pans were empty and what was on the buffet was dried up. Not worth the trip.

Lady spoke so fast couldn't hardly understand her. When I got home our chili relleno were wrapped in eggs instead of fried. Probably should have ate in.

I love Latino food but I'm not certain what this was. We allegedly had tacos, chicken fajitas, cheese quesadilla, and a burrito. The beef had the consistency and taste of Hormel chili from a can. The beans were flovorless with cheddar melted on top. The chicken fajitas were marinated in something that I just can't put my finger on...maybe an... More

Lunch visit - had the deluxe tostada. Tasty & great service. I like the Azteca / Don Pedro chain. Very consistent among their locations.

Aztecs used to be our favorite Mexican restaurant but over the last couple of years I have noticed the food does not taste as good and the portions are smaller each time we visit. f
