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 just want a good quiet dinner with a friend. We both ordered the combo plate but, I should have wrapped part. I ate too much and had no room for desert!

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 to find out the restaurant was serving, buffet style, authentic ( meaning things my husband's family REALLY eats ) mexican food. Ah, the barbacoa, enpanadas, caldo de res, and real salsa ( watch out amateurs ). In english, savory meats, tangy salsa wrapped up in those unbeatable fresh tortillas. And then they had dessert too. It was wonderful. Homemade soft drinks too, jamaica, horchata- it was great. Thanks Azteca for an unforgettable meal.

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.
The decor was festive, the staff was friendly and helpful and the food was very good.
We had tortilla soup, which was not overly salted, a problem we often encounter with soup in restaurants. It had generous strips of chicken breast meat, chunks of avocado, 2 chunks of Monterey Jack cheese, tortilla strips in a well-seasoned chicken stock. We then shared the burrito tinga and carnitas jaliciences. Both were excellent with large portions. The prices were extremely reasonable.
