I grew up in South Texas, and found both the menu and the food to be very familiar and good. Chips and salsa were perfect, and my chalupa and enchilada made me feel at home

Our business recognized tenure employees at a luncheon here. The wait staff was friendly and accommodating. The wait staff ensured our drink beverages were immediately refilled and dirty dishes were removed from the table. We were served buffet style with two taco choices and toppings, two sides and dessert. The food was plentiful and very delicious. Definitely worth a return... More

While difficult to get into if your northbound on Peachtree, the food was fresh and plentiful for the price. Service significantly improved from my last visit. Would have liked to sit outside, but there were a lot of young kids so we sat in the bar area with, believe it or not, less noise! I love kids, but sometimes you... More

The real jewel of this restaurant is the Sunday (only) Buffet - not sure if they have it at all locations, we were at the Peachtree Street restaurant. It didn't really hit me we'd picked a great place until I saw the little lady in the middle of the dining area making fresh corn tortillas MMMmmm.... then we were delighted... More

Atlanta has a lot of Mexican restaurants, but a lot of them charge high prices for "new slants on Mexican fare". If you want a great, no frills, Mexican restaurant with awesome food and drinks then this is the spot. They also have two great patios when the weather is nice, so you can find outside.

This is just a random place to go eat. Parking is rough - inside is rough - food was good, but much better options out there.

We know good Mexican and Tex-Mex food, as we're from Texas. It was not our first choice to eat Mexican food in Atlanta, but it was the nearest restaurant to the one we wanted (but when we arrived, that restaurant was closed due to a recent fire). So, with no expectations, we walked over to El Azteca on Peachtree St.... More

Very standard mexican food, so the prices seem a bit high for what it is. Otherwise a good place to grab a meal or drinks.

Perfect local place for good Mexican. The service here is fast and friendly. We go here often for quick dinner or drinks with friends. The prices are very reasonable for good Mexican food. It is a reliable go-to place for the neighborhood.

Sat at the bar, bartender Victor was cool. Had margaritas, tortilla soup and Guacamole dip. The guacamole dip was tasty but tortilla soup was the best. Margaritas was ok, not froze enough.
