Pint-sized venue churning out fresh, homemade tortillas and beloved burritos
This East LA classic has been making tortillas and using them as fuel for fantastic burritos, quesadillas, and tacos for over seven decades. Ownership has changed over the years, but now the Villa family -- including father Juan, wife Candy, son Juan, and daughter Cynthia -- is making the most of La Azteca’s masa. The quesadillas feature griddled flour tortillas, molten Monterey Jack cheese, sautéed pico de gallo, and if you’re smart, chicharrones. Burritos get no better than La Azteca’s version with egg-battered, Jack-filled chile relleno, pinto beans, pico de gallo, and nopales.
