Best Mexican Restaurant in the area! – This is the best Mexican Restaurant in the area. The food is always good and they give you huge plates. I like that the rice is fluffy and fresh. The employees are very friendly and are always smiling. They usually offer buy one get one free dinner or lunch coupons in the local magazines, which is why we started going here. I'm not sure about the other comment saying it's Americanized, because that to me would be like On the Border, Moe's or Chevy's. This is real Mexican food to me and it's really good!
MY FAVORITE – Yes, it's a chain, but Azteca is my favorite for Mexican. Great deal for the price. The place is clean, and plenty of boths so you don't have to settle for a table. The service is also good. I get the chicken ala crema (sp.?) which I love in their soft flour tortillas. I also am a fan of their chicken totilla soup. Best I've had. I love their chips and salsa, and their mosse or fried ice cream for desert. I always take friends for family there becuase I know the place is good and have never been disappointed.
Decent "Americanized" Mexican menu – This is a very friendly restaurant that has very friendly and attentive service. The appetizer "platter" is big and has a nice variety. The problem is that it's not truly Mexican, but tailored for American Tex-Mex. As far as Mexican-American comfort food goes, they do a decent job. The refried beans and Mexican rice that you recieve with your entree are all right. As far as the main part of your entree....choose well. The tamales are horrible, but the Chile Colorado enchiladas are good as long as you order them later in the evening so they become more tender (the longer they cook over the evening the more tender they become). The service is very good, as there is so much wait staff to attend to you.
I have been dining at Azteca for years and although they are americanized, they are one of the best mexican restaraunts around. Tortilla soup is great and one of my favorites is the flautas.
Decent food! – My girlfriend and I went to this restaurant with another couple who recommended this place to eat. I felt like this place was similar to Chevy's, but had it's own unique atmosphere. I would eat here again, but I don't think it offers the best in Mexican cuisine. The restaurant attempts to serve authentic food, but has stylized the food to make it more tolerable for the American diet. The pricing is affordable and you get what you pay for.
