Try the carnitas or enchilada souzas, very good. The carne asada is the best steak in town if you can eat the whole thing. Very nice employees, family oriented too. The refried beans are a hit and miss depending on who's cooking that day. Over all very good, my favorie is the fish tacos, very fresh fish each time I... More

While I am not a huge fan of Mexican food, this is said to be the most authentic Mexican restaurant in Dubuque. I've heard they have great Margaritas, too.

My daughter ate her taco and my son his quesadilla, but my husband's food was incredibly greasy. My chicken pipian was not like it used to be- the sauce was insipid and if there were nuts in it they were invisible. The sauce used to be thick and spicy, full of ground nuts. THis was like canned enchilada sauce. Then... More

I lived in Mexico, I am an American. My wife is Mexican. Los Aztecas is not good quality REAL Mexican food. I believe the owner is Guatemalan. I found the meat they use was very cheap and sloppy. I've never gone back. Theirs is NOT true Mexican food.

Excellent chips, salsa, and margaritas. Great atmosphere and fast service. Super fast service for lunch in and out. On your birthday they sing and you get to wear a sombrero. They have two locations in Dubuque, the location on the west end has outdoor seating which is nice during the summer.

We were pleasantly surprised by Los Aztecas. The fajita quesedilla was amazing. The meat and vegetables were very flavorful and it was wrapped in a homemade tortilla. The salsa was ok, a bity too much onion flavor. I also thought the margarita was just ok - too sweet. The staff is very friendly and the prices are great. All in... More

Great place for lunch. In and out. Will make any dish vegetarian. They make their tortilla chips in house fresh. The salsa is fresh and delicious. The margaritas are strong. No shortage on the alcohol. We always get a 8 oz blended margarita with lunch.
