Place is really going downhill. There are so many better restaurants around. Zacatecas blows this place away. I have been coming here for years. That stops today. I got some bad seafood last year but they fixed it. Today I pushed my plate away after ten bites. I told them it was not good so they just brought me my bill. The taco meat was nasty. Greasy, bland, and almost ground to a paste. Disgusting! I told the girl at the front that my meal was terrible. She apologized and proceeded to tell me about valentines day specials. By then my stomach was acting up and I left. #$%$ poor service! I will give my money to businesses that appreciate me. Nothing like wasting fifteen bucks and leaving with a still empty but now upset stomach. At least I ate some chips.
I would like to know what's going on at El Azteca!! We have been going there almost every Friday night for about 2 1/2 years. Our family ritual. However, as of late, the recipes have been different (and not in a good way), they constantly bring us the wrong thing because there is such a language barrier and the service has been HORRIBLE! We have been tolerating it, but I think we have spent our last Friday night there. Such a bummer!!
I have to agree with Amber. The food is NOT authentic Mexican and it is fairly ordinary. The service was ok( they did not come back and fill our waters). Also, when we had just sat down, they asked for our order right away! It's part our fault for not being more aware and because we were in a hurry, but we did not check the bill carefully. When we got home we discovered the restaurant overcharged us for the mandatory 18% tip- they gave themselves an extra 10% on the $50 bill. Also, be aware of stacked good reviews. I have come across this sort of practice quite a bit in my experience in writing and reading reviews. Because they ripped us off, I can only give them 1 star.
I like this place. I believe it's tied for first with Solea/Menasha as the best Mexican restaurants in the area. El Azteca wins slightly because they have a very good queso blanco. :) Excellent food, great service, nice motif.
For years now this is my favorite place to go for Mexican..outstanding service, great drinks and even better food..al at a great value!
You have to try their guacamole..always fresh..and their seafood enchiladas..
Also don't pass on that tasty little shot they now give you after the meal..
Great food, and gives you the feel of being somewhere else in the world while injoining and outstanding meal. Really a treat. oh and the margaritas are not to bad either, after one I know I am ready for bed! lol
