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!

I am a long time El Azteca fan. They have some of the best Mexican foods going in Clarksville and Columbia. I have had brunch and dinner here and would recommend both. You have got to try the stuffed Jalapeños. They stuff them with a...More

Ran across this place by accident this evening and it is now one of our "go-to" places when we want a good dinner in Howard County. The service is outstanding, the food is fresh and hot and everything was very tasty.
