There is no better place to eat in East Lansing during the summer months that El Azteco. When the sun is shining, sitting on the roof with a pitcher of margaritas and some of the best Mexican food in town.
On last night’s visit, I took a break from our usual Topopo salad (big enough to share) and went with the burrito plate. Two good-sized burritos with beans and rice were too much for me, and I have leftovers for lunch. Add on some great chips and salsa and it’s an excellent meal all around.
Andrea and I rarely venture into East Lansing during the school year, and we’re probably not alone. When the students leave, the locals flood in to take their place. Nothing personal, students, but we generally don’t like the crowds.
The next sunny day, head to El Az. You may have to wait for a table on the roof, but it’s worth it.
