Rey Azteca in Warminster

I have not seen much about Rey Azteca on these boards, but we were looking for a cheap casual dinner and I was craving some old school Chi Chi's style Mexican so we decided to give it a shot. The first sign of a good restaurant was that there was a line out the door, at 5:30 on a Saturday night. Tables seem to turn quickly so the wait was no more than 10 minutes. In terms of decor, its an old Pizza Hut and they did the best they could and painted it bright colors and hung sombreros, but its still an old pizza hut. We ordered a kids chicken enchilada and cheese quesidilla for my 20 month old daughter, I got burritos verdes (a beef burrito and chicken burrito topped with salsa verde) and my husband got chorizo and potata burritos. We were really hungry so we also got some chicken and beef soft tacos a la carte and sopapillas for dessert. The food overall was really good, the chorizo burritos were outstanding, with a bit of spice and topped with a mild cheese sauce. The chicken and beef in the tacos was really flavorfull and tender. My daughter LOVED everything, she ate an entire quesidilla, an entire enchillada and almost a whole chicken soft taco, and was gobbling up the chips and salsa and the steak from my burrito. My only low lights were the fact that the salsa they served with the chips was bland and tasted like watered down tomato paste and some of the cheese they used tasted like american cheese. But, those worked well for the palete of a 20 month old! The service was great very attentive, we ate a ton and the bill was only around 30 dollars. We'll definitely go back.

One more funny thought on the atmosphere, they had some music in the background and they must have had a Christmas CD on because we heard Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Jungle bells in spanish. My daughter heard it first and as soon as she heard Jingle Bells she stood up in the booth and started to do a little dance!
