We get both carry-out and eat-in. Good food at a decent price. The trout Veracruz is a favorite as are the fajitas. I really like their salsa and guaccamole too. Good margaritas!

Menu offers lots of selections. Good service. Nice atmosphere, where you feel comfortable eating at the bar, watching a game on TV.

In our 16 years of living in the area, our search for authentic Mexican food like we could get back in San Diego just keeps bringing us back to El Azteca. This is no secret - if you arrive during peak hours, you might wait...More
