“Chips and white sauce is awesome!”
Reviewed 30 June 2013 via mobile

Whenever we are looking for a quick meal, El Azteca is our first choice. Not just because it is fast, but we have never had a bad meal. The serving sizes are large enough that we typically split a chimmichanga. With the chip prior, we always leave satisfied. The best Mexican in the south metro!!!

“Chips and White Sauce is Awesome!”
Reviewed 30 June 2013 via mobile

When we want Mexican, El Azteca is our first choice! The dinner servings are so large that we will split the chimichanga meal. With the chips and sauce before the meal, we always leave satisfied. Better than any other Mexican restaurants in the southern metro.

“Great enchiladas”
Reviewed 4 May 2013

This is one of our favorites. We have ordered many things on the menu. Favorites include:

lobster enchiladas - great cheese sauce
vegetarian enchiladas - one each of refried beans, mashed potatoes and
cheese covered with cheese sauce

One note of warning ... the chile rellenos used to be excellent and they have really been awful the last two times we were there. They are now over-breaded and greasy. If they wouldn't have been so awful twice, I would have given them 4 stars.

“Great Mexican food in Apple Valley”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

This is one of the better Mexican restaurants in Apple Valley. Their chips are nice and crispy, and food is very good. Service is hit or miss, but usually worth the wait.
