Visited this restaurant on Friday afternoon. The service was alright, got seated right away, chips and salsa was brought within a couple of minutes and the waitress took our order soon after.
The food was a different story, while it was not bad, it wasn't anything to be excited about either. The food was lacking any type of flavor, it was plain and simple. Prices were about the same as most Mexican Restaurants but flavor wise, it left a lot to be desired.
On my visit, I saw a lot customers(couples) eating there. Unfortunately, I won't visit this restaurant again. I have visited many Mexican restaurants and the lack of flavor of the food on this one is a deal breaker for me.

I have been dining at this El Azabache for 8 years. If the food wasn't so good, I would boycott this place. It seems to me like that have no concept whatsoever about customer service. Many times the server never checks back to see if everything is good. Many times I sit there with an empty beverage glass or an empty chips basket for 10 minutes or more and I finally have to flag someone down to get it. Many times the servers don't understand what I am saying. If I ask for ""diced"" tomatoes, they don't know what I'm talking about. Same thing if I ask for ""slivered"" onions. Yesterday when I went there, I finished an entire bowl of salsa before a server finally came to take my drink order. I am so addicted to their salsa. I have tried to find salsa this good at other places in Indianapolis so that I would never have to go back there again. But I really cannnot find any this good. Two weeks ago when I was there eating a grilled chicken salad, I was halfway through and I took a bite and began chewing and something felt hard. I pulled it out of my mouth and it was one of those metal twistie ties from a bread bag. The owner came out and spoke with me and I still paid full price for that meal. They also ""nickel and dime you to death"". Don't ask for extra lettuce or they'll charge you $1.00 for it. A third basket of chips will cost you $3.00, and it doesn't matter if your first or second basket of chips wasn't full or if the chips were broken into small pieces. If you can handle horrible service, you should go. And they act like you're the one with the problem if they don't meet your expectations.
