Azteca serves the usual Mexican fare, and it is all fine. I had a beef taco and beef enchilada combo, and my husband had chicken fajitas. We had flan for dessert. It was ok, but we've had better flan. The service was satisfactory.

We go here probably once a week. We are seated right away, never have to wait. It is clean, the service and food is always good. It is good for eat-in or carryout. I highly recommend their Grilled Chicken Azteca Salad.

We eat here several times a month. I have never failed to get good food. Neither has my husband. We order, and within a very few minutes our meal is served to us. Hot and delicious. The service is impeccable. The restaurant is spotless. These folks are glad we are there, and they treat everyone the same. I would highly... More

I travel up through the mountains from South Carolina to West Virginia and back. As I was coming back through this time, I decided that I wanted to try Azteca. I ordered the two quesadillas, which there is a choice of steak or chicken. I tried one of each. The order came with chips and salsa. The salsa was not... More

I love this place! I regularly get the $5.00 to go special. You have three choices, all which come with rice, beans, chips and salsa and a 16 oz drink. Beef enchiladas, Beef burrito, Chicken Chimichanga. Delicious. Can't beat it for $5.oo.. I highly recommend the Chicken chimichanga meal. It comes smothered in white cheese. omg so yummy. Check this... More

I have always liked their food and we always have good service. My favorite is the Texas style fajitas and the chicken chimichanga.

I'm a fan of Mexican food, have had it many places. Suppose it's not the same in eastern TN. Price was fine, service was OK. Food is just average. Not a lot of choices in the area and I would return but not in a rush.

I have been to Azteca many times and it isn't bad but it isn't exceptional either. I always order a #23, which isn't terribly different than a #4 or a #19 or a #11, etc. El Corita, just down the street, is a much more authentic Mexican restaurant if you're wanting "real" Mexican food. If you just want a quick... More

This Monday my friend Lance from San Antonio and I decided to have a quick lunch at Azteca. We arrived at 12:30 and the restaurant was crowded. We were greeted and seated in the last available booth. Azteca is the only place in Erwin were you can have a beer with your meal. No wine, or bar but a good... More
