Warm and cosy, this place has grown a lot since I was here a few years ago! The food is delicious, the portions are big, and the service is great! Authentic Mexican done right.

So delicious!! Horchata and tamarindo were super fresh tasting. Had tacos al carbon, sooo good. Best salsa verde I've ever had! Coming from California I was skeptical about how authentic this place could be but it was really great!

The office I was auditing recommended this place for lunch if I liked Mexican and I certainly do. It was an easy walk from the office and was pretty darn good at a good price. If I lived in Poughkeepsie I'd frequently visit!

I've looked high and low in Poughkeepsie for good Mexican food. This is the best by far. I had the enchiladas. One chicken, beef and a cheese. It comes with a choice of three sauces. Portion was good. Price was $13 with beans and rice....More

Growing up in the Southwest, I’d struggled to find great Mexican restaurants in upstate New York. Not anymore. My litmus test for Mexican restaurants is their Tacos al Carbon, and at El Azteca their succulent, marinated steak melted in my mouth; along with Monterey cheese,...More
