    • I sure miss the Aztec restaurant. when i was a child, we would always visit san diego during our summer vacation and the aztec was a “must stop” tradition. When i graduated Navy boot camp in 1983, the Aztec is where we celebrated my graduation. I wish your family still operated a restaurant. the suprema tostado was my favorite.

    • well do i remember Aztec, as my parents and i visited the restaurant every week starting about 1952 or so until it closed. My dad always ordered the #11. I have many happy memories of eating there, even the garlic dressing on the green salad was special. usually i ordered the beef taco. and almost always the sopaipillas with a drizzle of honey on them. such a special restaurant.

  2. My mother used to go there long before i was born! I grew up going there and introduced it to my now husband. I have such wonderful memories of the aztec! I was crushed when i discovered it had closed. Is there any chance you’ve opened another restaurant that has those fabulous empanadas?

  3. My grandmother got a job there in 1958; Mother beatriz took a liking to my grandmother, Maria bustillos and sponsored her and her 5 children to become US Citizens! What a gift.
