Old school Mexican with a familiar menu. Been going to Azteca since its first location on Kuhio for their flavorful refried beans, rice and salsa. From mole to chimichanga - everything's delicious and comforting.

We're from Austin, TX, so we are used to really good Mexican food. We were pleasantly surprised to find Azteca. The food had a home-style quality and the flavors were right on. Definitely worth a stop.

Azteca Mexican restaurant is not fancy, but the food is very good and reasonable. They have excellent margarita drinks. It's not a large place, and you may dress casually.

We entered at the very end of the day and the staff was still very courteous, and helpful. The meal started with a traditional (to me) salsa and tortilla chips, which were great. I went with a chicken quesadilla followed by the chicken Chimichanga. The...More

Good old fashioned Mexican food done right. It's a little place and I've eaten there 3 times this year while in Honolulu. There are only a few tables but the food is fantastic. The service is fine just keep in mind it's not fine dining....More

Yes, metered parking is behind the building. Take some quarters. As for walking from Waikiki that depends on where you are on Waikiki. If you are into walking then walking from the zoo area would be a good walk.
