Azteca

3 posts in this topic

We are thinking about trying Azteca for an early dinner tomorrow. I contacted the company and received a great email with a list of their gluten-free items, he told me to attach his name to the printout and hand to the manager when we arrive and that they are currently working with GIG to standardize a gluten-free menu.

AnyWho, anyone tried Azteca? Successes? Failures??

We have eaten there but for the most part we find the food quite disgusting. My husband had a windshield replacement and with it got a bunch of coupons for free food there. We used one of the coupons once. We got three orders of beef fajitas. The meat was tough and inedible. The vegetables overcooked to the point of being mush. We did eat the beans and rice. The waiter tried to give us boxes. We declined and I told my husband to give the coupons away.

We did eat there again this summer when they had a salad special going on. They made a special salad for my daughter. The chicken is normally breaded but they made one with plain grilled chicken. That meal was just okay.

The main problem we have there is with the service. It is VERY slow. At least the one in Mill Creek is. We tried the one in Lynnwood by the Alderwood Mall a couple of times and they kept getting our orders wrong. Such as giving us chicken when we ordered beef. Or putting cheese on our food after we asked for no cheese.

We've had the best success at the one in Mountlake Terrace. They did get the order wrong once. The other times the orders came out fine. We were just very careful what we ordered. I think daughter would only have beans, rice and corn tortillas. That's how much she dislikes the rest of the food. I usually just suffer through the tostada. This is not a place we would go by choice, but it is one of my nephew's favorite restaurants so we sometimes go there for his birthday.

Thankfully there are other Mexican restaurants around here that are much better and one of them even mentions food allergies on their menu. Another one has been very good to fix special meals for us. Everyone in my family save for my husband has some kind of food issue.

As for getting glutened at Azteca, that hasn't happened to us. We just don't want to eat the food.

I go to Azteca every once in a while. Here in the OC, the food is quite good. I haven't gotten glutened, nor has my son.

Enjoy!

    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
    • What a gross title–it bothers me and I wrote it! It wasn't my idea originally. The research paper the data came from was entitled, "Experimental hookworm infection and gluten microchallenge promote tolerance in celiac disease" published recently in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

    • katesyl.........this is an older topic so the OP most likely won't answer.  I can, however, offer a piece of advice for you. Just going gluten free will probably not drive your inflammation markers down into normal.  It does depend on how high they were to begin with but with all autoimmune diseases, there will be inflammation going on forever.  Get used to wonky blood work because most of us will have that issue. I have 4 autoimmune diseases in total and, although I have driven certain inflammatory markers way down, my recent sed rate number was elevated.  The normal is supposed to be 30 and under in a woman my age but mine is 50.  With 4 AI diseases, I doubt it will ever be normal and I don't let it bother me. I am not willing to take major meds at all and use more natural anti-inflammatory supplements.  You can do whatever you feel comfortable with in regards to treatment but don't expect normal numbers with Celiac Disease. Inflammation will improve but normal?  Most people never get there completely.
    • My daughter's PCP did not go against anything, she offered to do the biopsy - I was the one opposed to it. My DD, who was 10 at the time had just spent 3 weeks in the hospital, very sick with a ruptured appendix, then had 2 surgeries a few months after. I didn't see the need to put her through anything else with her numbers so high and all the classic symptoms. Apparently, in some other countries, if your numbers are all high, they forego biopsy. Anyway, I was really asking about myself and whether I should push for add'l testing. I am still new this this and trying to get up-to-date and wasn't sure if my PCP should conduct other blood tests before I go completely gluten-free. I have been somewhat gluten-free, but not entirely. I have no problem going gluten-free, but want to make sure that I am doing it for the right reasons. I wasn't sure if the Gliadin Abs IgA was sufficient to point to Celiac and possibly doing a biopsy for me. Or if additional blood test would make more sense.   Thanks!!
    • I would like to know if you have found out the source of your inflammation yet. I'm gluten free three years but my inflammation test was high.
