Bueno!. El Azteca is awesome! The food is great; not too salty, very authentic. They have the best Mole sauce around. The vegetarian section of the menu is much larger then other Mexican restaurants in the area. The pricing is extremely reasonable. The service is great and fast and they don't have hidden charges like other Mexican restaurants in the area (ahem, Mexican Food Factory anyone?). They have awesome lunch items too!
Time to get real.. This is the best Mexican food I've ever eaten. In my youth, I was a trained cook by trade, and I can tell you all food I have ever been served in this restaurant has been freshly made. This had been a place I have brought family and friends for years, and everyone I've ever brought has been as impressed as I have been. I have seen the little boy, but I haven't ever seen him misbehaving or disturbing guests. Many of these reviews seem filled with fictitious malice. My father is getting gastric bypass surgery in three days, and this is where I'm taking him for our final "normal" dinner out. Need I say more?
Good food and service. Food was good (not as salty as one might expect). Service was good, portions were generous and price was very reasonable. Definitely more authentic and tasty compared to Don Pablos or On the Border. Only negative was little boy bouncing basketball up and down the isles (family owned and operated)
Gone Down Hill !.
I use to really enjoy going to the place. We went often.The food was decent and fresh. Service was always so-so, but the food used to be worth it. But things have gone down hill in the last several months
The last 3 times we were in the place,(on a weeknight) one of the waitresses had her 2 yr old son in the dining room of the restaurant and she allows him to roam and play, jump in the booths with patrons, eat from their chip bowl, and the whole time, she just smiles at him. Friends & family have reported the same experience
This was the case the last time we were there and I couldnt wait to get out. Then came the clincher. Right before she brought our check, a COCKROACH climbed up the wall next to our table. That is enough for me - I am outta there
Best Mexican in town. This is surely the best mexican place around here. I eat here at least once a week for lunch. So much more authentic than On the Border. And great, friendly service.
Go to "On the Border"?!. R U Kidding - Who wrote go to "On the Border"? That is NOT Mexican and it is terrible, pre-frozen, microwaved, over-rated, etc
Authentic Mexican?? Hardly!!. In the area from Southern Cal.(where Mexican food actually has taste) my family was hungry and El Azteca was nearby. My wife warned me that we couldn't expect much from a Mexican restaurant in NJ. Next time I'll listen to the wife. Salsa tasted like tangy pasta sauce. Waitress determined our Cokes from our root beers by employing the sniff test "This one is Coke." Snifff, Snifff. "No wait, it's root beer." The kids pronounced the enchiladas " They taste just like Swanson's, but thats ok because I like Swanson's." Enchiladas filled with tasteless ground beef and smothered in canned sauce. Refried beans tasted canned. Stay away from this rundown dump.
Big Portions and Very Yummy!. This is an excellent mexican restaurant! The tortilla chips are served piping hot and the salsa is wonderful! Friendly and fast service--This will definitely be added to my list of favorites in the area!
Best Mexican Food.. Anyone who has actually been to Mexico more than once, and off the resort into actual Mexico, will appreciate this food. It's real Mexican food, not some hyped up "low brow" tex-mex or over priced wanna be gourmet. I have spent many years living in Mexico on and off and I know the real thing. THIS is the real thing: rice, beans, and the same 15 or so ingredients done 100 different ways all of which are delicious and fun to eat. If you think this is not real Mexican food, or some frozen reheated food substance than you don't deserve to eat there anyway. Try it and realize what real Mexican food can be, and in New Jersey of all places!
