Eat, Drink & Be Merry: El Rey Azteca

If you walk into El Rey Azteca Mexican Restaurant today, things look very different. 

That is because of new owner Memo Angel, who spent eight years as a server for the restaurant before buying it recently. 

“Working as a server, you know what things needed to be done,” said Angel. 

Angel said he was very thankful to the Mt. Juliet community because when he had the opportunity, a lot of people encouraged him to follow through with buying El Rey Azteca. 

Angel said that it took a year to do the whole remodel for the restaurant. 

They renovated the bar, the bathrooms, the tables, even fixed the air conditioning. 

The next step is to get a brand new menu, which should be coming in the next month. Angel said the menu will be a much bigger variety of options for you to choose from once it is finished. 

Angel said he has also tried to bring a family atmosphere to El Rey Azteca. Being a server, he knows how important it is for the customer to feel like family when they walk in the door. So he tells his staff that when customers come in, they are part of the El Rey Azteca family. 

If you like margaritas, El Rey has two for one right now on Wednesdays and Saturdays. 

El Rey Azteca Mexican Restaurant is located at 1319 N. Mt. Juliet Road. They can be reached at (615)773-3611. You can also find them on Facebook.
