At first, they weren't sure they could seat us, because they had a reservation for about 30 people in an hour. They asked it we could be done by then, and we agreed as long as the food wasn't slow arriving at the table. It turned out to be a non-issue because the other party arrived early and much smaller,...

I've eaten at Azteca's a few times all because my 4 year old grandson can't get enough of this place. The food and service is really good. They know my grandsons name and what he likes to eat (since they're weekly visitors). but for his 4th b-day it was singing, fried ice cream and he wore the big hat. Something... More

Have eaten here several times over the years. Food is consistently delicious and served hot off the stove. Staff is efficient and courteous. The dips served with the complementary chips are very tasty. Their lunch specials are particularly economical; you can easily have a fresh, hot meal with beverage and tip for under $15. Cheaper, better, and faster than some... More

We had a great lunch here. We ordered a type of smothered burrito and a chicken tostada plate. The beans and rice on the side were good. The lettuce, tomato, guacamole, and sour cream garnishing was generous and fresh. The parking lot gets pretty full at lunch and supper times. Our server was good and our food arrived fairly quickly... More

We stayed at a hotel near this restaurant and were pleasantly surprised at the menu selection and quality of the food. My wife had the spinach enchilada and I ordered a chile relleno, chicken enchilada and fish taco from the a la carte menu and all were delicious! The complimentary chips salsa, salad and beans were very tasty with our... More

I ordered the fish Taco as it was one of the specials and I like fish. Now fresh fish has no "fishy "taste to it all all and the older it gets the fishiness comes out. These were extremely fishy tasting I mean to the point of returning them. I ate a lot but not all of my meal and... More

We visited for dinner on a Saturday night and were seated immediately. Great chips and spicy salsa. We ordered the chicken fajitas and the Mexican chicken stew. The fajitas were a saucy style, not charred, but with good flavor. The stew was described as having juicy chicken thighs, but instead came with the same chicken breast strips that were in... More

My wife, three kids, my in laws and I visited in mid September. I work just down the road at Paypal, so I've visited several times. I've never been disappointed. The chips when you sit down come with a hot bean dip, salsa, and a "mexican" cole slaw. It's different and excellent. We showed up after church on a Sunday.... More

I have been eating at Azteca for several years but decided it's time to share my thoughts. The staff at Azteca are the best and I have been seen several employees there for several years. The food is good and it comes out quick. While it may not be the fanciest place in Omaha it is well kept and the... More
