El Azteca is a family favorite, it’s clean, has fast friendly service, the food is always delicious and served nice & hot. Their fajitas are delicious, we like to share the fajitas for 2 and their chips & white sauce, a favorite! We are regulars...and have been for many years, we’re always satisfied with El Azteca!More

We were doing a walking tour of the historic district and found this restaurant. We got there for lunch and a huge burrito and the poblano combo. It is a little out of the way but worth the effort to find. It is unusual but...they allow the lunch menu prices on the weekend. The prices were cheap for the amount and quality of food that they serve. We definitely would do this one again.More

The staff is very friendly and professional. The food was excellent and the service was very good. Also their chips and salsa were awesome. I loved my steak with salsa ranchero.

I went three times over 6 weeks. The food was ok. Service was fast. Every visit the same man at the cash register said “you have a beautiful smile” when I was not smiling at all. It seemed very disingenuous and I wondered if he...said this to all patrons. I will go to Degollado right down the street instead. Their food & atmosphere is much better.More

We have eaten here for years. It is always busy but we are never rushed. This is our go-to place for palatable cheap eats. The food is good, fast and reasonably priced. They are generous with their chips and salsa/white sauce. Last time we both...got house salads (cheap) and used the white sauce as dressing. I got two chicken enchiladas and it was an inexpensive night out. Service as always was excellent. It was a bit loud and the parking lot was nearly full. Bathroom were clean.More

Always delicious and comes out fast and hot! We love the Chori Pollo! So good. Chicken tacos, Burritos Vera Cruz, Quesadillas, Rice & Beans are delicious. It’s all good! They are extremely friendly as well. They call us friend every time we visit! Great place...to eat if you like Mexican food. In fact they’re the best place to get Mexican food in Hampton Roads, VA and we’re Texans so that holds a lot of weight!More

We are visiting from out of state. I am Mexican American and I am very opinionated of Mexican restaurants, do they taste like grandma’s?! First I want to talk about the great service we received. The server was ready when we were, not pushy. Since...it was our first visit we needed to look through the menu thoroughly, as it’s huge. We ordered our drinks and studied the menu. The chips and salsa arrived immediately and they serve something I have never seen before, a white sauce. I assumed it was queso and asked if it was and was told no it’s white sauce. Okay I dipped a tortilla chip and it was very good, not spicy. I’m not sure what the white sauce really was all I know is that it was good. I ordered a margarita on the rocks and again this was very good. Our dinners were 2 tacos, my husband ordered chicken & steak fajitas and I created my own dinner of cheese enchilada, tamale, hard shell beef taco. The tamale was chicken and good. My cheese enchilada was good as well. My only complaint would be the red sauce served over the top. It was not enchilada sauce or tamale sauce, it was general red sauce.....so not like grandma’s at all. The taco was indeed like grandma’s and very much to my liking. I also ordered rice and it had zero fillers and was very good. I did not eat all my food, not because it wasn’t good but because it was too much. We were a group of 7 and the other dinners were said to be good as well. If I lived in the area I would definitely return.More
