El Azteca adds North highway 66 location

El Azteca on Historic Route 66

September will mark 19 years since El Azteca decided to make Claremore their home.  The restaurant on Brady has been a favorite for as long as many of us can remember.  Now, there is a second location on Historic Route 66 in the heart of the Sequoyah area.

Co-owner of El Azteca, and storyteller extraordinaire, Corey Lipe, told us about a time in the early days of the restaurant when a very large catering order came in from Baker Hughes. It was a stretch, but they accepted the order and worked around the clock for two days and nights to prepare and serve 1,200 taco salads!  Corey said it was worth it though because after that, people knew who they were, business took off, and we have been enjoying friendship and food there ever since.

You can enjoy the full El Azteca menu at both locations, in town across from the Rec Center, at 441 S. Brady, and on historic route 66, just north of Sequoyah schools.  Tell them MoreClaremore sent you.
