I had been to Los Aztecas for the first time several years ago and was not overly impressed with the food. I am not sure why I did not like the food the first several times, but the last several times, I ordered Pollo(chicken) Mole(a traditional Mexican sauce). Having had Chicken Mole at several other Mexican restaurants within the past year or so, I asked the waiter if they made any mole and he asked what kind, and I said chicken.
The Pollo Mole arrived on a sizzling hot plate which included the chicken with mole suace, brown rice, and a plate of soft hot corn tortillas.
Since I ordered the Pollo con Mole the first time,and it was so good, I had to have it again. So for our last Friday night date night, I asked my wife if she wanted to go to Los Aztecas.
She was a bit skeptical as to why I wanted to go there, as our first two visits to Los Aztecas were not very satisfactory. But that was several years ago as well.
Additionally, since Los Aztecas is a BYOB restaurant, we brought a bottle of Jose Cuervo Margarita mix with us, and our waiter was gracious enough to bring us two salted glasses with ice for two perfect margaritas.
The next thing that I really enjoy about Los Aztecas is the complimentary hot chips and salsa, which are out of this world. These chips I do remember from my first couple of visits as being very good.
In all truth, I can not recommend any other meal but the mole. The crab queso appetizer we got was also pretty tasty, but it was not the most pleasant to look at. And the chips and salsa can rival any other Mexican restaurants.
It might be me, but I do know that many other people do recommend the food at this little Mexican restaurant. My friend who got me to go there the time before last is a perfect example. He actually lives in Collegeville PA, and chose to travel to Pottstown because he likes the food at Los Aztecas.
The Pollo con Mole at Los Aztecas is awesome
The Pollo con Mole is the best mole I have had in recent years. I would put it up against mole from other Mexican restaurants on the Eastern US. A sizzling plate of mole with rice and beans served with a plate of hot corn tortillas.
