If you are looking for a place to hang out with adult friends to have a cold Magarita, this is not it! This establishment has a bar that allows smoking, therefore no one under 18 is supposed to be in this part, which also includes the bar patio as it is smoking also. However, the restaurant does not enforce these laws under direction of owner Javier (slob). Also, any food establishment is supposed to have the restaurant score card posted either on the door or close to it. Take a look around and ask to see it. you won't find it anywhere, which also is against the law not to post the score where customers can easily find it upon entering establishment without having to ask. Also, tables sit for hours after people have left and attract flies. or maybe it's the sewer smell that is always there while eating your food. If all of these things are out for the public to see without any concern from owner, it kind of makes one wonder what the kitchen looks like!

There really isn't any competition in the mexican restaurant category for el azteca. They're the best by far, their customer service is incredible, and they are always upholding the best standards. can't go wrong with them.

There isn't enough words allowed to explain how good this restaurant is. they take care of you in every way. The food is incredible, the service is awesome, they don't make you feel rushed like you have to leave, and they don't make you feel like you have to stay and buy more stuff either. It's the perfect non stressed environment that you want to eat it, I would recommend this to everyone!

Wow, we have found a truly rare gem! El Azteca maintains the integrity of authentic Mexican cuisine while delighting the taste buds with perfectly seasoned dishes & American sized portions. Drew ordered one of their margaritas & WOW it was served in a fishbowl! It was huge and delicious. He ordered the Super Combination for his entree, which was enough food to feed an entire family. I ordered the Beef Nachos for my entree & they did not disappoint. Everything was absolutely excellent. And what an amazing value! We could not believe how much food and drink we got for such a low price. This place does Mexican food right!

I went here once and they added more of a tip than I wrote on the receipt. I checked my bank statement, still had my receipt. I went back immediately and I was only reimbursed for the extra tip. Not cool! Never going back to this location.

I visited El Azteca and found a HUGE roach in my food. The deck was packed and I did not want to cause a scene, so I quietly told my waiter. He took my plate and came back and told me he saw it as well. That was it....no sorry, no I'll take it off the bill or did I want something else. My friend said "you better ask him to take it off the bill". I thought, I don't need to ask him, he'll just do it. Well, I get the bill and it's on there. I said I expected this to be off the bill. He said it was not their fault a bug was in my food. I said I didn't say it was your fault, but I would like it to be acknowledged, please take it off. He brought out the manager who was so rude! He told us the bug in our food was our own fault because we chose to sit outside. Well, let me tell you....there was not one bug outside the entire time we sat there. In addition, this bug was huge! 2 inches, and it was buried at the bottom on my plate. If a bug that big had landed in my food and dug it's way to the bottom of my plate, I would have seen it! This bug came from the kitchen. After a bit of arguing, and NO apology, he finally took it off my bill. Any good place understands that as a customer I was not trying to cause a scene (I was very quite) and was only looking for some basic customer service. I will NEVER go back to this place. Forget the bug in my food- their service was just terrible. There are plenty of wonderful Mexican restaurants in the city- this place is junk.
