1st time here. From the start we were greeted and treated with great respect. We had the pleasure of having a representative of Casa Amigos Tequila on hand to explain the differences in their tequilas and the process of making them. I have to say the drinks supplied were smooth and tasty! I love this tequila. Now to the food,... More

Went for lunch with the boss who recommended this place, got one each of the authentic Mexican taco's which were on special. Taco's were good and were flavorful. Would recommend getting the tacos.

Very friendly and interested wait staff. The food is great. They have some things on their menu you do not often see in the typical Mexican restaurant. Full Bar and decent prices.

Arrived for a take-out order. We wanted a chicken burrito with the usual beans, rice, lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, and sour cream. No big deal, right? Well the only menu item close to that was a grilled fajita version we didn't want. Due to a staff attitude and language issue, it took a while to get the request across. After a... More

Was very impressed with this restaurant. We had the steak and shrimp fajitas which were excellent! Not over cooked and steak very tender. Shrimp were wonderful. Would definitely go back and definitely recommend.

Taqueria El Azteca had many seasonal menu items which they were happy and proud to show off. The two managers were great hosts and shared with us their journey so far and the various food truck festivals We started off with Nachos with Salsa and Guacamole (sort of reminded me of pani puri filling that my mom used to make)....

The second time I've been here, but definitely going to start becoming a regular. The servers are all Spanish and English speakers and are so nice. On Tuesdays and Thursdays the tacos are $1 and beers are $2. They aren't big, but about 5 or so does the trick. Not a sports bar, but there's a bar section and a... More

My husband and I have many Mexican restaurants near us, but we always go here even though it's an extra 20 minutes. The food is fresh and the staff are very personable. The only complaint I have is they charge $1 for avocado on tacos. It used to be free...

This restaurant has terrible service and employs thieves. I was at this establishment and left my sunglasses on the table. I returned less than 20 minutes later and our server, Amri?, tall guy, clean shaven with gelled hair, informed me that no one had left ant glasses and actually laughed at me. There were not any other customers in the... More

Visited in Greensboro Quaker Village with 4 business associates for lunch. Three of us had the $1 taco special. The tacos are authentic and tasty. They put radishes on their tacos - so ask to exclude if you are not fond of them like some of my associates. The ingredients are fresh and the salsa is some of the best... More
