Azteca Mexican Restaurant and Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey Review



Azteca Mexican Restaurant and Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey



Ever have those existential dreams where you are surrounded by a trillion Elvises while in Mexico?  That is Azteca Mexican Restaurant in Garden Grove, California.  There are many restaurants with the same name, remember they are different.  Elvis first appears to greet you outside the restaurant, then as you enter it is sensory overload.  Elvis pictures, buttons, statues, posters, and memorabilia adorn the counters, line the walls, and cover the ceiling.  

This is not Border Grill nor MESA Grill.  If you are looking for good priced drinks and karaoke (Japanese for "empty orchestra"), then bring some friends and have a good time.  At 10:30 P.M.  those under 21 are asked to leave, I'm not sure why if they are with their parents.  I went for a friend's birthday, we sang a lot and tried out Jack Daniel's and Tennessee Honey.  The flavor is sweet and cinnamon spicy, which lightens and turns into an almost chocolate finish.  I liked it with Coke.

 "Back in 1957, the "first" Azteca Mexican Restaurant was opened by Aunt Connie on Garden Grove Blvd. a short distance from here. But Connie's lifelong ambition was to own a restaurant on what is now Historic Main Street and she fulfilled that dream in 1980 when she moved Azteca to its present location.  Aunt Connie had been an avid collector of antiques so the Azteca decor of old reflected that interest.  Most importantly, she was a gifted cook who shared her love for authentic Mexican cuisine with Garden Grove until 1993 when she turned over the reins to her nephew, J.J. Jauregui."
