Te Quiero El Azteca

We love Mexican food.  So you can bet that we were in a hurry to feature the best Mexican restaurant in Ames as the next dining Hot Spot. What makes it the best? Fast and friendly service, a menu full of delicioso Mexican food, the tastiest chips and salsa in the county, and superb sangria and margaritas. Haleigh and I both plead guilty to eating at El Azteca multiple times in a week... and often two or three days in a row.  

El Azteca is easy to find at 2727 Stange Road in Ames' Somerset village north of Iowa State University. Take a seat at the bar or sit down at a table or booth. Mood lighting overhead and colorful Central American art on the walls make for a perfectly cozy establishment to gather with friends or for date night.  

The complimentary chips and salsa arrive right away. (And we highly recommend ordering up some queso blanco to go along with!) I ordered a hard shell chicken taco and chile relleno with rice on the side while Haleigh chose the arroz con pollo.  Muy bueno!  You won't leave El Azteca without being delightfully (and maybe miserably) full.
