Seriously great people here- not a fan of Mexican food so haven't eaten here but am always blown away by the bar staff. Warm, welcoming and very personable. Come in and meet them and you will feel like an instant "regular". One of my 3 favorite bars in my neighborhood!

Food, drinks, salsa, it was all subpar, barely edible. Because I could see that sending it back would do no good, I politely pushed the food around my plate and left. I don't understand how a place like this stays in business. There are several other places closeby, and I would say they are all better than this place.

I've been going to this friendly neighborhood bar & restaurant since a few days after it opened. I've enjoyed countless good to excellent meals here ... and that bar serves the best frozen Margaritas I've ever tasted! If the owner is there ... be sure to speak with her. That warmth is genuine and she runs a tight ship! Make a friend of this charming lady and you''ll enjoy going again and again. I have no hesitation in recommending El Azteca to friends here and from out of town.

The drinks were warm and supposed to be frozen. The food tasted like it came from a wholesale factory. I could have made better Mexican food than this. The atmosphere was cheap with Christmas lights and fake candle light. The place was loud and crowded (although I don't know why). I would not recommend this place to anyone.

el azteca has been in the hood for years. not sure why...food is mediocre at best, service not terrible & much better if they know you. i think the chips are fried in lard. there used to be a better chef ...don't know where he went. can get loud. margaritas on par with what you'd expect. great for a happy hour after work & they are children friendly, but eat somewhere else for authentic mexican fare.

Went for Margaritas and some chips/guac. Ordered the taquitos. They were AMAZING. Best ever and it is now a dish that I crave. I can eat them now. They are soooo good. The margaritas are excellent as well!

1. person taking phone order could barely hear me. took 10 minutes just to tell him my address & phone number. should have given up then. 2. delivery took 45 minutes, because delivery person waited 10 minutes in the lobby of the hotel, instead of calling me. finally found him in the lobby after we called the restaurant. 3. ordered "plain cheese quesadilla for a child;" recieved quesadilla with jalepeno peppers, salsa, and sour cream slathered over it. 4. didn't get the extra side of rice i'd ordered. food itself: well the extra time sitting in salsa and sour cream certainly didn't help the soggy, cold quesadilla any. and the soggy, cold vegetarian enchiladas had canned mushrooms and a little spinach.
