Taco specials on Tues and Thurs are great. I love the traditional style w/ corn tortillas and lime wedges. ACP and molcajete are good here too.

If you like a little kick and prefer chile rellenos that aren't breaded and fried, try these! We've never found any anywhere in the world we like better! Chicken and steak are our favorites, though all are delicious. A great little place with the perfect waitstaff.

Seriously the best in town. After trying out taco places around town, the price, quality, and service keep bringing us back. With Taco Tuesday & Taco Thursday with $1.50 tacos, it makes lunch and dinner super affordable and REALLY GOOD!

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
