I had a large soup with Mussels, Clams, Scallips and Calimari. Big dish and I couldn't finish it all. The drinks were good too. We had a great time.

We dined there last night. The chicken burrito was rather dry and tasteless. My husband had the beef and it was much better! I asked for a skinny margarita and it was pretty much lime juice and tequila 😩

We go to Azteca about once a month and have had only one unsatisfactory experience. It was during Cinco de Mayo and apparently the management had brought in some questionable part-time workers to serve the additional diners. Otherwise the service has always been excellent and...More
