  • CABO FISH TACO BAJA SEAGRILL 
    3201 N. DAVIDSON STREET • CHARLOTTE, NC 28205
    (704) 332-8868
    Imagine yourself driving down a rocky dirt road, with surfboards strapped to the roof, in what appears to be the middle of no where. To your right a bare steer skull. To your left nothing but bone dry desert and cacti. Within minutes the desert opens up to present the Pacific Ocean as the backdrop to a small Mexican fishing village. Driving into the town you see a beautiful beach with perfect six foot-swells rolling in. But before you actually get to the beach you see a small stand and a sign that says, "taco de pescado". Translation: fish tacos. 
    You wonder to yourself, what in the world is a fish taco?

    Folks traveling through Baja California found that The best fish tacos were first offered in local stands on the side of the road, often run by the Mexican fishermen themselves. Fish tacos were first brought to Southern California by surfers in search of Mexico's big waves. It didn't take long before the hand-crafted fresh seafood tacos made their way back to beachfront restaurants in San Diego.

    Cabo Fish Taco is the combination of concepts from three completely different people, who share the same idea of what makes a restaurant great. Unlike most Baja styled restaurants, Cabo combines coastal Mexican cuisine with a unique healthy California feel. The food and atmosphere of Cabo is an impeccable infusion of very different styles.

  • AZTECA MEXICAN RESTAURANT 
    116 E. WOODLAWN ROAD • CHARLOTTE, NC 28217
    (704) 525-5110

    The Aztecs were a Pre-Columbian Mesoamerican people of central Mexico in the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries. They called themselves Mexica. The Republic of Mexico and its capital, Mexico City, derive their names from the word "Mexica".
    The capital city of the Aztec empire was Tenochtitlan, now the site of modern-day Mexico City. Built on a series of islets in Lake Texcoco, the city plan was based on a symmetrical layout that was divided into four city sections called campans. The city was interlaced with canals which were useful for transportation.The principal food of the Aztec was a thin cornmeal pancake called a tlaxcalli. (In Spanish, it is called a tortilla.) They used the tlaxcallis to scoop up foods while they ate or they wrapped the foods in the tlaxcalli to form tacos.

    The Aztecs have been credited with the discovery of chocolate. The Aztecs made chocolate from the fruit of the cacao tree and used it as a flavoring and as an ingredient in various beverages and kinds of confectionery.
    Mexico City was built on the ruins of Tenochtitlan, making it one of the oldest living cities of America. Many of its districts and natural landmarks retain their original Nahuatl names. Many other cities and towns in Mexico and Central America have also retained their Nahuatl names.
    Mexican cuisine continues to be based on and flavored by agricultural products contributed by the Mexicas/Aztecs and Mesoamerica, most of which retain some form of their original Nahuatl names.
    Today, you can enjoy the richness of our Mexican culture, folklore and specially our traditional food at the Azteca Restaurants in North Carolina. We are proud to be the number one choice for Mexican cuisine in Charlotte, Matthews and Gastonia.
