My wife and I stopped for a mid-week lunch. Several others were already eating in the dining room, but not overly busy. Waitress promptly came to table and took drink orders, then brought tortilla chips with two small bowls one with diced tomatoes, onions, and green peppers and one with standard (mild but tasty) salsa. I ordered their beef fajitas... More

When we arrived we were told it would be about a 15 minute wait (probably a standard response). We waited at the bar and we each had one drink. One person's drink was okay and done correctly. The other drink was the standard Margarita, however, was out of a container on the bar and never tasted like there was any... More

I have eaten at this restaurant a few times now and the food is always good and consistent. They have other locations around the Charlotte area and they are great as well.

Every time I go to Azteca, the food is great. I've been going here since they opened in the 90s (I think it was,) and obviously it's still in business because it's good. Yes, it's a little loud during busy times, but we can be too! They do a cute serenade for birthdays, sometimes there's a band that roams around....... More

While the food is good, the seating is very crowded, the wait to be seated is long, and the noise level is high. Wait staff got our order wrong after we waited over 50 minutes for our food. Other than that, enjoy yourself.

This is a restaurant I really enjoy eating at. We had fresh guacamole, chips, salsa and from the lunch menu had Expresso vegetarian burrito with no cheese. All was very good. Great service and nice atmosphere. Good prices also.

I've been coming here for like 8 years. Jorge at the bar is awesome, love that guy! I've never had a meal here that I had to send back or didn't really like. Although the last 2 times I ordered the chicken taco salad the chunks of chicken were too big in my opinion and dry. Wish they would shred... More
