From the chips and salsa to the chicken mole, El Azteca's consistent, spicy and fresh take on Mexican food has made it a local favorite. Its vibrant décor and friendly faces are a hit with families or adults looking for some fun at the bar — the staff can't even count how many margaritas they serve each week (but they know it's a lot!).

El Azteca’s menu includes familiar dishes, like tacos and enchiladas, as well as more sophisticated choices. Server Abraham Argueta says that the chicken mole is one of the restaurant’s most popular dishes — and for good reason. The classic Mexican sauce, made with chilies, nuts and undertones of fruit and raw chocolate, shows off the complex side of Mexican cooking. Fajitas are equally popular, says Argueta. Their veggies and meat are crowd pleasers — who can resist the sizzle of a hot pan?
