Azteca's - Exterior

Any longtime reader of this blog will know that Azteca's Mexican Food in FV (CLICK HERE for our coverage of all three Azteca's locations) holds a special place in my heart (and stomach) as the mom and pop place near my mom and pop's place. It's the default Mexican food establishment for my family to patronize, having eaten in and ordered take-out many times, but on a couple occasions we've broke from the mold and gone to the other Azteca's in Huntington Beach. Occupying the spot formerly occupied by a KFC, this second Azteca's location (a third one recently opened in Anaheim) has a walkup counter for takeout orders and plenty of tables for sitdown orders . . . but no fried chicken . . . or mashed potatos . . . or cole slaw. Their walkup counter also has a nice big color menu with big pictures of many of their dishes. This is good for people like me who like to see what they are about to eat before they order it.

They also provide catering services courtesy of their cool VW van:

And the interior here is even more festive than that of their Fountain Valley location:

Still disappointed about the discontinuance of combo #44 and wanting to try something I haven't had there before, the waitress suggested their new steak and shrimp platter:

Their deep-fried ice cream is a very close runner-up to Avila's El Ranchito's which is my favorite so far. Azteca's uses chocolate chip ice cream (good choice), corn flakes, cinnamon crisps and a strawberry sauce:

Azteca's retains its four Speedy Gonzales rating and also gets one Panchito for their excellent deep-fried ice cream:
