We went to El Toro last night to try it out. We are new to the area and are looking for our "favorite" Mexican restaurant. This is a busy place, lots of folks there eating. We were seated right away. Had a fabulous waiter. My hubby ordered "Steak A La Tampiquena", a favorite of his. The meat was extremely tough and had lots of fat and grizzle. It was seasoned well and everything else that came with it was great. He had grilled onions, refried beans, rice and the "salad" that came with it had pico, guacamole, shredded cheese, a couple tortillas. But the steak itself was extremely disappointing. I ordered "Texas Fajitas" which is a steak, chicken, shrimp combo with cooked onions and peppers. It was excellent. Large shrimp. 3 tortillas came with it which was really not enough to hold all the meal. But, the "add ons" that come with a fajita was not great; lots of lettuce, refried beans, rice, guacamole, hardly a couple tablespoons of sour cream but no pico or shredded cheese! I "stole" from my hubby's plate to get cheese and pico. Who has fajitas without cheese, pico and maybe sour cream?! We both felt the rice was bland and tasteless. So, overall, some excellent stuff, but on the other hand, some really bad (steak) and disappointing (not the correct add-ons for the fajitas). Will we try again - maybe. My hubby said he will never order that steak again there. And if I were to order a fajita again, I would be definite on what I wanted/needed as add-ons for the fajitas. Would we recommend? Yes, with caution. Be choosy, carefully order, be specific.
I am so sad to comment that this was a horrible experience. First..had to ask to have the table wiped, felt sticky and spotted. Drink and food order was no problem, menu items $10-20. Complimentary chips and salsa was so-so, tortilla chips too thick, salsa too salty. 25 min wait for food. Platters came out cold, as were the rice and beans. My chimichanga was soggy, and a bit disappointing, as I fought to chew tough meat. We never seen our server again, until we quit eating. We are definitely not finicky diners, and frequent many establishments all around the city and country, but it really irked us to put down that kind of money for such poor service and food quality. We will not return.

The gang from work went every Friday. Killer cheese dip for the endless chips. Fun drinks - with or without alcohol. The Seafood Chimi is my favorite.
I have been a regular at this location. They keep the serving area very clean and are careful not to drop the water beneath the tray when replacing newly filled trays. This is a good hygienic way they manage compared to some other locations. This location is mostly crowded and sitting area needs more attention to keep it neat & clean, management must improve on this. Also during the rush hour there is a lack of coordination amongst workers which slows down the serving times. I love eating here

Dottie and I were down to the cities for her nephew Todd's wedding and stopped in Anoka to get some gas and a bite to eat since the reception at the Legion wouldn't be starting until 8. We try to stay away from ethnic foods because of the spices but Taco Bell seemed busy and it was convenient so we said "What the heck!?" I had a "taco" which is sloppy joe meat with lettuce and cheese in a shell. Very tasty. The tomatos were fresh and I asked our server, Isabel, if she had picked them herself. This is not a sit down restaurant. You order at the counter and they bring you your food very quickly on a tray. Dottie ordered the "taco salad" but for safety reasons, chose to have it without the chip-bowl or the meat or the cheese. I really enjoyed the wide selection of soft drinks that included both diet and regular Pepsi Cola. It was like going to Mexico for the price of a supper!

We always get great food and friendly service at El Azteca. I love the chicken fajitas and the quesadilla fajita. The chips and salsa are tasty. The staff is great, same people have worked there for years, and they remember us and greet us warmly.

We love trying new Mexican places and found our way here. Pricing is great 2.00 for a taco and nothing over 10.00 for a platter. We tried burritos, fried tacos and fajitas all had sides of chips or rice/beans. The best is the fried tacos with tour choice of meats. Burritos are large and no one as able to finish it. Meat was fresh and sidees of salsa had great taste. Restaurant is dated but for the food not ambiance. You order at the counter and they bring it out.

I stopped in on a Thursday evening and they had the taco bar available for dinner. The food was very good, and fresh. They kept restocking the food throughout the event.They have chips and excellent queso, as well as salsa. They offered hard shells, soft shells, and fried shells along with ground beef, chicken, and grilled chicken with onions and peppers if you want more of a fajita. There was fresh pico de gallo, beans, rice, and other fixings. They also had corn cake which is sweet and delicious. The chicken tenders were excellent. Lightly coated and just a bit spicy.For desert, they have a chocolate fountain with mini doughnuts, fresh pinapple, marshmallows, and pretzels. They also had chips with brown sugar and cinnamin.The margaritas were very good. I had the El Rey margarita and the house margarita. Happy hour only goes until 5 PM, so if you want to take advantage of that, get there early.Also, the place does get crowded. It was full by about 5:30 PM.
