Guide to The Aztec Broadbeach Mexican Gold Coast

Mexican Restaurants Food, Not Mexican Fast Food

Operating since 1995, this multi-award winning Mexican Gold Coast Restaurant is uniquely themed in the Aztec tradition.

My school friends and I have a long-standing tradition of visiting this Gold Coast Mexican restaurant for our catch-ups whenever the whole gang is in town.

Now, it’s time for the next generation to have their tastebuds tantalised and tempted by this scrumptious food.

Mexican food at the Aztec restaurant beats Mexican from any of the Mexican fast food joints every time!

Hot tip: Order the chicken enchilada pictured above. It’s a best seller.

Aztec Mexican Restaurant Gold Coast locations

The Aztec Restaurants in Broadbeach and Coolangatta are the family friendly choice for holiday dining especially.

The Aztec is part of a group of Mexican restaurants on the Gold Coast, so you can also find the identical menu at Montezumas Surfers Paradise, as well as a Mexican Takeaway, both located in the tourist mecca of Surfers Paradise.

(There’s another Montezumas at Burleigh too, with a takeaway outlet located separately on the Gold Coast highway. This one is separately owned, but has the same menu.)

Lunch, or Dinner from 5.30pm

You can feed the starving hordes from 5.30pm, the tables are topped with bright rainbow coloured cloth table covers that hide all the spills and stains, and the vibe is loud and boisterous, perfect for kids.

Plus, there’s colouring in!

Aztec Broadbeach Menu

Mains options for adults and teens include:

  • Nachos
  • Quesadillas (folded flour tortilla with a filling)
  • Burritos (a beef burrito is a winner)
  • Chicken Mexican (half a succulent chicken glazed in special spices and oven baked)
  • Tamale Pie, and
  • Chilli Verde simmered on the stove. (Get in my belly.)
  • Aztec Delight

There’s LOTS of gluten free and vegetarian options. 

Wash it all down with a Margarita, a jug of Sangria, a Mexican beer, or a cocktail.

BEST Aztec Mexican Mains Options

No.1: Chicken Enchilada

I can never go past that Chicken Enchilada mentioned before.

It’s the best I’ve ever eaten anywhere in the world.

Most of my friends order the same thing!

No.2: Montezumas Delight

My friend Sellina loves her No. 1 – the Montezuma’s Delight.

It’s a soft tortilla smothered with frijoles beans, cheese, heaped with salad, salsa, sour cream and cheese and topped with black olives and beef.

At least the salad makes you feel like it’s kind of healthy!

There’s also a bunch of starters, including all the Mexican dips you can imagine (yep, chilli con carne too), plus a Taco Bar.

Aztec Mexican Food – Kids Menu

The Aztec kids menu has all their Mexican favourites – including one very plain dish of cheese on corn chips for the fussy eaters.

But for those with a bit more sense of adventure, there’s:

  • Tacos 
  • Cheese Enchiladas (a corn tortilla rolled around a filling and covered with a tomato sauce and cheese) and
  • Taquitos (a rolled tortilla with a filling, which is then crisp-fried).

At Aztec Restaurants, kids can choose their own filling for their meal:

  • shredded beef enchilada
  • chicken, or
  • beans for a vego option.

Or kids can try Tostadas (a Mexican version of an open-faced sandwich, with the fillings and salads on top)

Ned’s favourite is the Fajitas, a roll-your-own dish where you fill a soft tortilla with your fave ingredients.

Gold Coast Mexican restaurant – Kids Meals with FREE dessert!
