We have been regulars of El Azteca for at least five years, always enjoying the good food and huge menu. Last Tuesday we were seated by a host at a booth where the restaurant employees are usually seated. If you are a regular you know it is located toward the right rear. The booth was filthy- the walls covered in food spatter, fruit flies on the wall and the screen behind the booth. I called the manager over to see, and his response was "the next time don't sit there" as it is too close to the kitchen and the breakdown station. His that the files are coming from an area so close to the kitchen has us concerned, so the next time we won't sit there, we will sit in another restaurant.
