We have been here quite a number of times, and will keep coming back. Menu options are awesome, perfectly cooked steak meal choices and cold beers.

Nice menu with different choices in the Mexican fare. Spinach enchiladas with poblano sauce was really good especially for vegetarians. Warm and fresh chips to start off. Nice selection of luncheon specials.

The décor is nice, something a la Mexican cantina. This is about all that was good. The food is very average, almost tasteless, taste frozen and reheated. Kinda like a fast food. Waitress had an attitude because we did not speak Spanish, we were gringos....More

It's been a several years since we last visited Plaza Azteca. I seemed to recall that the food was good back then. We tried to eat here a couple of years back, but it was Mother's Day weekend and the place was jammed, so we...More

Cradled between Methuen and Salem you will find Plaza Azteca. Uniquely it's own, Plaza Azteca's furniture and fixtures give that comfortable feeling of a chain restaurant but the food and staff deliver a quality and level of service infrequently seen. Our family is no stranger...More
