Disappointed with our meal. A favorite dish with shrimp, lots of onions, green peppers, mushrooms etc is now reduced to slivered and few vegetables, mostly rice and some tiny shrimp. Other entree was filled with rice as well. Not the Azteca we used to know. Even the salsa was reduced to a few tomatoes and onions swimming in tomato sauce.... More

I decided to give it another chance but it is still going down hill with no plans on stopping. My husband ordered the Carne asada dinner. For $19.50 I looked at a very small portion on his plate. He said the flavor was good but the meat was stringy. I had chicken mole. The flavor was decent but once again... More

Good price on beer, $6.00 for what must have been 24 ounces. Service friendly and quick. Food was good and very hot.

Very friendly waitress. Took our order. Delivered our food. Then watched tv instead of noticing we were in desperate need of napkins & drink! So even though the food was ok, the service made the difference of us ever coming back. Too bad.

I would have given it a 1 but our waitress was ok and my mom liked her food. We ordered the original mondo margaritas in the big thick stemware and the glasses were very warm. Like just out of the dishwasher warm. It made our ice melt. The waitress came over with two new ones with almost the same temp.... More

Wow what a disappointment this place is. Do not waste your hard earned dollars here! This gets a one star because.............they are HORRIBLE!!! We sat in the bar area as it was happy hour. A hate picking on wait staff, but the bartender in this case was not good at all. He was slow, never refilled glasses or salsa without... More

I had lunch there a few times, Dinner prices are high, lunch prices much more reasonable. The salsa and chips were good, but the salsa needs some zip, they might have hotter available, but it was hard to find my waiter. Plenty of other condiments to help out. Chips were thin, crisp and warm, which is great. My Macho Burrito... More

As mexican food lovers we were less than impressed with the food offered. In spite of quick service and hot dinner plates our food was almost cold and the mole did not taste authentic. The decor, menu selection and service were without fault however and we will probably give this restaurant another try on the food quality.

Service was good. Drinks were good. Plenty of food on the lunch menu. I didn't care too much for the polo a la crema. The cream sauce tasted too much like just sour cream or cream cheese. Chicken did have a smokey flavor. Rice and beans were good.
