I am puzzled to how they just got awarded best Mexican restaurant in Howard County. We live in Columbia Md and decided to make the almost 25 minute drive to check them out even though we have wonderful Mexican restaurants close by. The food and...More

It's been a bit since I visited this restaurant. I love Mexican food and this place is my favorite. The Stuffed Jalapenos cannot be matched. If you enjoy a meal made fresh and delivered in a timely fashion, you are onto something. It is worth...More

I reviewed this months ago. Had lunch there today, nothing changed, still the most tasteful authentic Mexican I have tasted. Eat anything, fajitas are a weakness for me. Yes, in my opinion it is worth traveling for the food. Enjoy

The food is good and the service is good. Not exceptional, but good. A little pricey, though. In this part of the county, it is the best around.

Service was pretty quick. It is a little smaller than other restaurants, but we didn't have to wait long. Steak was good, I also really like the shrimp cocktail. Great place if you want a non-chain restaurant!

This place is a great restaurant to stop in for some delicious food. I personally love the chicken fajitas! So good. Service is always good and the servers are friendly and fast. This place can get busy because the location is not very big. But...More

Have never had a meal from El Azteca that wasn't delicious. This applies to both take out and eat-in.
