If you are looking to get real authentic Mexican food this is the place to come. The food here tastes absolutely incredible, the taste is more of a home made meal. The tortillas are hand made and the rice here has a special touch of seasoning. The meals are a bit too expensive for my liking. Would definitely come here again whenever I am craving some a home made meal.

Azteca Grill is the best restaurant in Durham, North Carolina. My partner and I have been regulars since we moved to town a year and a half ago. The owners are amazing. The food is consistently wonderful. It is a friendly, family place with really authentic food. There should be an option for more stars. You're going to love it.

Some of the best Mexican food that I've had in Durham. While this place may not look like much don't let that sway you. The tacos were delicious, cooked perfectly on warm tortillas, with fresh toppings. Their menudo tasted like a family recipe. This place has authentic Mexican food with great environment and staff.

The tortillas are home made which I love, while the tacos may be on the smaller side they were pretty good. If they doubled up the tortillas they'd be perfect.

Decent Mexican food. Tried their Carne Asada, but was disappointed by the portion and the quality of the steak. For the price you get a tiny amount, and meat was too thin to enjoy its texture and flavor. Everything else including the salad was okay, but a bit pricey for what you're served.

We happened upon Aztecs on a Sunday afternoon, and enjoyed the quality of the food, as well as being able to customize fixins on the entrees. Also, the staff were very nice.

I stopped by for lunch for the first time and I was very impressed. At the recommendation of the worker, i had the gorditas, which were mostly corn based. I chose the pastor and barbacoa gordita and enjoyed every last bite. I also found the two gorditas very filling. I look forward to returning with my family.

Very good food, with a decidedly authentic taste. I came here with a friend who is from Mexico, and he gave glowing reviews of how true to flavor the cuisine at Azteca really is. There's a great staff here, and the host is very professional. Definitely recommend the Zopes and the piña juice!

Their torta cubana was the best sandwich I've had in my life, it had four different types of meat in it and every single one was delicious. They brought it out while my partner was up getting sauces, and by the time she got back I had eaten half of it. It was culinary nirvana, and the only reason I'm not putting up a picture is that I didn't think of it until I came up for air partway through the second half of the sandwich. The people were super friendly too, it was a great time all around.
