Fiesta AztecaCourtesy of EMILY MCINTYRE
Authentic and Creative
Ask Fiesta Azteca owner Andres Orozco about his restaurant, and he’ll smile and say, “We’re serving people the way they should be served.” He points to his family as they bustle through the restaurant dispensing smiles, fresh salsa, and sizzling plates of incredible food. It’s the food that really sets this place apart. Inspired by Orozco’s Mexican home state of Jalisco, the menu offers specials such as chipotle chicken—a tender chicken breast smothered in smoky cream sauce. To really make the dish exciting, add an order of cactus.
The Orozco family has served diners for years, first in the intimate Raytown location and now to the current Lee’s Summit location, which is larger, better-lit, and seats more customers. There is a Fiesta Azteca tradition of specifying a meat for your dish and then asking Andres to “fix something.” The result, always creative, is invariably delicious. Lauded for the best margaritas in Kansas City, serving salsa that changes a little every day, and charging reasonable prices for food, Fiesta Azteca is one of the best authentic Mexican restaurants in the area.
