Azteca Mexican Restaurant

3617 Waialae Ave.
Honolulu, Oahu, HI, 96816, United States
TEL: (808) 735-2492

This unassuming restaurant in Kaimuki is known around the island for its authentic Mexican fare. Azteca has been owned and operated by the Sanchez family from Chilapa, Mexico since 1984, and its consistent, flavorful dishes have many locals claiming that it serves the best Mexican food on the island. Diners are welcomed with chips and the restaurant’s trademark salsa. Entrée items include the traditional Mexican taquitos, carne asada, and carnitas. The atmosphere is ultra casual, and Mexican artwork hangs on the walls.

Insider Tip:

Street parking can be hard to come by, but there is a pay lot behind the building.
