Restaurant details
Reviewed 1 June 2017

Azteca was a prime Mexican Restaurant a few months, even a year back. Now, it's just a fragment of itself. The service was very poor, just a couple of kids that were more interested in joking and talking to each other than serving their customers. The food was about average... the beans tasted bland and flavorless, the rice was soured, but the entrees were pretty good. A tough balance with food and service, but look elsewhere.

What a great place to eat. Food is excellent with a friendly staff. Prices are good and portions are plenty big. And live entertainment on Friday and Saturday. It's BYOB. Can't lose

Been wanting to give this place a try n we did n it was just ok. There are not too many Mexican places around anymore so if your in the mood give it a try. At least I can say it was the real deal. One suggestion for chef, freshen up ur salsa, very tomato based like sauce instead of salsa. Freshness is the key. N try making ceviche. Been to Mexico n that's something to enjoy.

I've been a big fan of this place for many years, but tonight my opinion is changing.
I usually order the chicken fajitas which are always pretty good, although recently my impression is the chicken is shrinking and the price is rising.
So tonite I decided on the chicken chimichangas. Big mistake. Granted the entrée was loaded up with chicken-- no problem there--- but it was obviously a previously cooked entrée that was put in a microwave and zapped to temperature.
Note to Señor chef: let's get a little creative and serve this dish the way it was intended to be served: deep fried and served hot and crispy, not room temp and soggy.
Sorry to say that if bland offerings continue, Azteca will have a problem staying in business. I will give them another chance, definitely owe the that. Hopefully next time will be better.

Since learning about this restaurant I try to dine there at least once every month. Reason, the food is tasty, lots of it to eat and totally affordable.

I have taken my relatives and friends here so they can experience Mexican Food done right. Unlike the belief that Mexican food is "Hot" to your last buds I find it to be mild unless you request it to be Hot!

I just love their food and their desserts are enough to kill for!
