My favorite Mexican restaurant!!! The service is very quick and you get your food quickly!! The chips and salsa is fresh and amazingly good especially the white salsa! My favorite dish is the shrimp quesadilla, the shrimp are big and it's full of them!!!!

Truly delicious authentic Mexican food. The speed of service puts Jimmy John's to shame. Lol. Unbelievable service, excellent quality of food and the atmosphere makes you feel that you are south of the border. If you truly want great Mexican food with great service all at a reasonable cost, you cannot go wrong here.

I've been here dozens of times but the first was on the recommendation of a vegetarian for the quality of food. Since that first time it has remained the home of good food reasonably priced. Their free chips, salsa and white sauce is appreciated. To help us control intake and cost, my wife and I often order ala carte and... More

Whether eating in or taking it out, the staff at El Azetca are always polite and friendly. Normally I just order tacos or enchiladas with chicken and it tastes hot and fresh every time- and I have ate here since I was a child, it's really popular with teens. The inside is bright and fully decorated, which makes it comfortable;... More

In VA for a wedding, due to a change of plans, we ended up looking for a place to eat on a Friday night. Thanks to the Trip Advisor app, we found this restaurant. It was in a plaza and not too impressive, but we were hungry so went in. It was noisy, and the lighting was bright, so I... More

Everything was going pretty well at this restaurant until we got our bill. We're long time customers and have enjoyed this place for years, but when we got our bill, I questioned the 50 cent charge and was told it was for the two waters we'd gotten! I couldn't believe it. When I questioned that, I was told it was... More

I stopped by for dinner and it was great. The chips and salsa was homemade. They brought a regular salsa (liked), and a white salsa (did not like). I recommend requesting queso blanco (white cheese), which was awesome with the chips. I ordered a #1 combo: two enchiladas, one taco, and a choice of rice or beans. The food was... More

Arrived mid-afternoon on a Saturday. Very friendly staff quickly seated me, took my drink order and brought chips and salsa. El Azteca has a large selections of Mexican beers (all in the bottle.) The chips were warm and crispy and the salsa delicious. My waiter helped me with my selection as I was looking specifically for tamales and chile relleno.... More
