Amazing place! Every item on there menu is good. Menudo is served everyday. The only problem is that it is very tiny so seating is elbow to elbow. The food makes it worth it lol.

We're so glad to have found this hole-in-the-wall. Santiago's has always been our go-to Mexican place, but Azteca may have replaced it. The service is fairly quick and the food tastes like my grandmother's Mexican cooking... And she's from Mexico.Definitely try the Azteca meal, which comes with a carnitas burrito, rice and beans. It's very affordable and incredibly filling.

I really have enjoyed coming to La Botana over the past decade and hope they stay in the community for the years to come. I appreciate the atmosphere more than any traditional restaurant. Very authentic and delicious.
