The food was very good. I ordered Lomo Saltado and Pollo a la Brasa, Anticuchos and Picarones. Everything was excellent. The prices were affordable. The owners Manuel and María were very friendly. We really enjoyed the time, and felt like being among home with friends. Next time we go to Edmonton, for sure we will come back to this restaurant.

Fantastic service and great food.

We dropped in to celebrate our anniversary. Immediately we had a waiter (Adrian) getting us drinks and making recommendations. Both him and the waitress always made sure we were being looked after.

We tried the beef heart appetizer and it was fabulous. Never had beef heart like this.

Our main courses were also excellent. My wife had the seafood rice and I tried the rotisserie chicken. I would order the same thing again next time but I might miss out on something even better so I will explore.

Not a fancy place at all, could use a little updating but we will be back.

We had a coupon for buy one get one at the Azucar Picante. We went on a Saturday evening about 9 pm and found the place rather empty. We told them we had a coupon but they said they would not honour it even though they looked as if they shouldn't be turning business away. We decided to leave and my Wife pointed out a notice at the front desk saying they have the right to frisk any patrons before allowing you entry. If l have to be frisked before getting into a restaurant then l know its not the place for me to be in. When we got home we checked the coupon book for the following year and they were in that as well, false advertising.

Been to Azucar a few times and it is one of my favorite mexican restaurants in the city. Being to mexico a handful of times i would say it is pretty authentic considering we're in Edmonton. Their tacos are authentic, with your choice of meat, cilantro and onions. The tacos also came with refried beans and tortilla chips and salsa. If you want authentic and not an overcrowded, popular place like tres carnales then I recommend Azucar hands down. Good food and good service at a reasonable price.
