Azteca Mexican Restaurant (Davie)

***** Azteca Mexican Restaurant, 8800 State Road 84, Davie, Florida 33324, (954) 474-5226.

Azteca Mexican Restaurant is a “Mexican” restaurant (that figures) located in Davie, Florida. This is a small chain…last count– something like 35 joints, with 30 of them in Washington, 2 in Oregon and 3 in Florida…don’t ask me, because I have no idea—Why the concentration on Washington? Maybe it’s because Washington shares a common border with Mexico, or something!

At this stage check for menu/prices…you can also check locations, so when you are in Washington or for that matter Oregon, you’ll know where this chain’s joints are.

As you regular Jeff Eats’ guys know, I’m not a huge fan of Mexican food. Not really sure, but I think that my “feelings” about this type of food might be–shall we say colored– by all of the Ds that I got in Spanish at JHS 62 and Erasmus Hall HS way-back when in Brooklyn, New York.

Anyway…last night I did dinner at Azteca, by the way, the other Florida locations are in Orlando and Winter Haven…and I “had” steak fajitas ($15.25), arroz con pollo ($13.50), grilled skirt steak ($15.95), chicken breast sandwich ($8.25), chicken soup ($8.95). I really enjoyed the steak fajitas and grilled skirt steak (delicious marinaded steak with terrific carmalized onions), the two chicken dishes were okay, but nothing stupendous…as for the chicken soup, let’s just say that my Grandma-Anna’s would wipe the floor in a head-to-head contest with Azteca’s soup.

As I said before, Mexican food isn’t on my-most-favorite things to eat list. That said, I enjoyed the food, the casual decor and the very pleasant service.

If you like Mexican food…you’ll enjoy this joint.

Azteca is open Sunday-Thursday 11am-10pm and Friday-Saturday 11am-11pm.

    If you’re looking for a great meal deal that will leave you stuffed, order the ‘A La Carte Beef and Cheese Burrito’.

    This thing is decently sized, stuffed with seasoned ground beef and topped with melted cheese, and it comes with a big bag of tortilla chips and a side cart of homemade salsa.

    The price? $5.37 (give or take). you can add rice and refried beans for another buck. My buddies and me work around the corner from Azteca, and this is pretty much an every-other-week-stop.

    By the way, if ya get two of them…I don’t know why, but they make the best breakfast the next morning!
