It's nice to have good Mexican food so close. They have an awesome menu at great prices. Family friendly and the kids love to be able to munch on the chips and salsa as they wait.

Dirty tables. Sticky menus. Undercooked peppers and onions. I ordered a fajita and thought the veggies were raw. Slow service. What is that white chip dip anyways? Not tasty. It's what you'd expect for strip mall Mexican food, except worse. :(

My experience here was great! Great appetizer of chips and dips. Great tacos and enchiladas. Would definitely recommend for a fun night out!

We ate at El Rey Azteca Saturday night. The food is excellent! I ordered the chicken chimichanga. The portions was large and it was delicious. The fried ice cream is also good. We would definitely make a return visit.

Enjoyed our first visit to El Rey Azteca in Waconia. The food was very good, fresh and delivered quickly. I was pleasantly surprised by the interior of the restaurant, since it's in a strip mall, I wasn't expecting such a fun place. It looks sort...More

We visit Mexico often and have found El Rey Azteca's food is just like typical Mexican food. Delicious. The Margaritas are huge. They have Mexican beer and unlimited salsa and warm chips. The menu will take some time to peruse. It's hard to decide what...More
