Highly recommend the fideo soup - traveled all over and can't find anything even close it anywhere else. The chicken and black bean quesadilla is also a favorite of mine, but the margaritas and enchiladas do not disappoint either. Space is limited so expect to wait during dinner hours, especially on the weekends. If you come during non-rush hours, you... More

This is one of the 'go to' places when in Fort Wayne. It has been around a long time. They serve the BEST margaritas around. The food is always very good. It looks like a house and has multiple small rooms to dine in. The bar area is a more open space if you don't want the more intimate setting.... More

I am from Fort Wayne, and this restaurant is great. The best thing on the menu is probably their guacamole appetizers. Best guac you will see in Indiana

I've had lunch at El Azteca off and on over the last several years. I've always gone back because of the flavors, the service, and the servers' friendliness and attention to the customers. I've eaten a variety of dishes and soups (Fido is my favorite), and have never been disappointed. I usually go with family. For locals and those travelers... More

I was looking for Mexican in the area. Luckily my sister suggested this place as she always liked it when she lived in town. I'm glad she did. I was impressed. We ordered queso (in addition to the two free salsas - red/hot and verde- that come with chips) and it was tasty and, surprisingly, it didn't harden up within... More

I really love the food at this restaurant however, they have gotten silly with the way they run the place. I ordered the chicken almond nachos, which comes with lettuce. I cannot eat all of them and they go bad with the lettuce on them so I asked that the lettuce be put on the side. I was told they... More

The place was crowded and pretty loud, but the drinks were wonderful and the food was great! Loved the fajitas and guacamole dip and the margaritas were really good,,,not too strong or watered down with a lot of ice, Would recommend to all.

Went for dinner we both had a good experience. They always seem busy when we pass by so we were surprised to get seated right away. The food was good the portions were ample. We will return for more yummyness in the future! Also as a side note the cilantro was absent from my dish...thankfully.
