WOW – This restaurant has a great homey feel to it when you enter. The waitstaff is great and they only add to the atmosphere because they make you feel like you are part of their family. I have loved everything I have tried on the menu and I especially love the raspberry margaritas. They don't use that store-prebottled fruit, rather they use real fruit that makes the margaritas wonderfull.

To sum it up - Yum! Everything I've had at Taqueria is wonderful - I recommend the Quesadilla Mizcta, And the Torta de Camaron - though the Torta they only offer at lunch - I wish it was always available! And you have to have the Natilla for dessert! Top it off with a margarita and you have yourself one of the best meals ever!

Don't let the size of this tiny storefront restaurant fool you. Inside is the best Mexican food around. – The Scene


The decor is charming, with bright colors by day and candlelight by night. An award from the mayor attests to the city's approval for bringing new life to the former site of a greasy-spoon lunch counter.



The Food


Azteca's culinary strength lies not in the menu filled with standard tacos, enchiladas and other Mexican items, but instead with the specials written on the wall each day. The flavors of Oaxaca are well-represented by indigenous ingredients and intricate recipes including the Ensalada de Pulpo, a light salad of poached baby octopus marinated in a tangy vinaigrette and served with baby greens and avocado. The Quarache, a sandal-shaped blue corn tortilla topped with fresh spinach, avocado and two salsas is delicious. Handcrafted margaritas made with freshly squeezed lime juice are hand-shaken to order.

too bad – place really disintigrated since move...used to have great atmosphere and food...always had slow service but that was part of the appeal...have tried the new location twice and will never go back...atmosphere relatively weak...service like nothing you have ever seen...had to walk out w/o eating first time as the bartender would not aknowledge our presence though sitting 3 feet away from her for 10 minutes...second time was a real battle...menu has become more limited and food quality has slipped...margaritas have not only slipped but we were not even allowed to get a margarita straight up as the old location was famous for...bartender (male this time) simply refused to make them so we had to have them on the rocks...see you at cielito lindo tres hermanos los comales taqueria vallarta conejitos el cabrito don pancho or any of the scores of wonderful authentic places that welcome your business and accomodate you nicely

Real Mexican, done right! – As a Mexican-American growing up with traditional dishes prepared by my mother, this resturant broght back some of that old feeling. The food was well proportioned, and presented in a beautiful way. The service at Taqueria Azteca was outstanding. The atmosphere was welcoming with a live Mariachi playing for individual tables. It's a great place for a date, or even better a place to take my mom to.
