Azteca Mexican RestaurantsAdd to mybook
- General Info:
From a 24 seat restaurant in Burien, Washington in 1974 to a collection of 35 Azteca Mexican Restaurants, established by 2001, Azteca Mexican Restaurants now employ more than 1,400 people, and serves over 400,000 customers each month. During the company’s developing years, Jose Ramos, owner and founder of Azteca recruited his three brothers, Hector, Jaime and Victor to help him manage and run the Burien restaurant. Each brother brought the strong people management skills, practical business sense, and solid work ethic instilled by their parents to the thriving family enterprise. By 1981 Ramos and his brothers had opened two more Azteca s in Ballard and Kent, Washington. With a proven track record of success, the Ramos’s were able to accelerate the company growth with formal financial backing in the late 1980’s. In 1988 the first Oregon restaurants opened in the Clackamas Town Center and by 1989 the total number of restaurants had grown to seventeen. Marketed as a family restaurant, Azteca Restaurant Enterprises, Inc. features a wide selection of authentic Mexican fare including a variety of Mexican salads, soups, burritos, enchiladas, fajitas, and a Little Amigo" menu, specifically designed for children, all served in a warm Hacienda-style atmosphere. Responding to changing lifestyles, Azteca features a broad range of non-alcoholic beverages, and entrees available for those watching calories, featuring Broiled Chicken Breasts served with Rancho (cholesterol-free) beans.
• Each restaurant boasts a Cantina where Aztec’s famous Ramosrita® Margaritas, Sizzling Fajitas and Award Winning Nachos make every visit a fiesta! Nine of the locations also feature a Tortillieria machine which prepares fresh tortillas for guests right in the dining room, and are available by the dozen for take-home.
• With increasing demands for new and interesting flavors, Azteca management continually searches for new authentic menu items, including the recently introduced Borrego Azteca: marinated seasoned lamb shanks baked and served with Pico de Gallo and sliced avocado and Molcajete, a bowl of chicken and beef strips sautéed in a mushroom, onion, and tomato sauce topped with melted Monterey Jack cheese and sliced avocados.
