Every time I go to Azteca, the food is great. I've been going here since they opened in the 90s (I think it was,) and obviously it's still in business because it's good. Yes, it's a little loud during busy times, but we can be too! They do a cute serenade for birthdays, sometimes there's a band that roams around....... More

While the food is good, the seating is very crowded, the wait to be seated is long, and the noise level is high. Wait staff got our order wrong after we waited over 50 minutes for our food. Other than that, enjoy yourself.

This is a restaurant I really enjoy eating at. We had fresh guacamole, chips, salsa and from the lunch menu had Expresso vegetarian burrito with no cheese. All was very good. Great service and nice atmosphere. Good prices also.

I've been coming here for like 8 years. Jorge at the bar is awesome, love that guy! I've never had a meal here that I had to send back or didn't really like. Although the last 2 times I ordered the chicken taco salad the chunks of chicken were too big in my opinion and dry. Wish they would shred... More

Very expensive for what you get. We went after work one day and our waiter was not concerned about our small group just the large group beside us. Beer is also expensive as compared to a normal Mexican restaurant. I tried several times when in town and probably will not return.

My family and I stayed at the Comfort Inn next to this restaurant and on the first night we decided to visit and eat. The food was great and so was the atmosphere. The wait staff is very friendly, too. Definitely recommended.
