“El Azteca Rainforest. is the best family restaurant. I eat here every time I come to highlands NC!”
“The best Restaurant in town. always fresh ingredients!”
We are honored to have been providing the Appalachian region of North Carolina with the finest handcrafted Mexican food for over half a decade.
Through partnerships with local seasonal farms we have been able to create dishes boasting the freshest ingredients including jalapenos, chocolate, local honey, dry peppers and many distinct ingredients
that make our dishes stand apart.
Our roots began here in 1999 when the journey through the Appalachian Mountains led us to create relationships and great working friends in Highlands, North Carolina.
Through their support and inspiration the intricate and amazing flavors we bring to this community were made possible.
We believe in the sharing of history and culture and through the symbiotic relationship we forged with the beautiful Highlands plateau
we are now proud to share authentic Mexican cuisine from Mexico City where the most refined of flavors are collected from all over the country.
A very special thank you to those individuals and organizations who have supported us since our conception and have helped bring to life the dream of bringing homemade Mexican food to this incredible four season location:
TUESDAY- CLASSIC MOJITO $5
WEDNESDAY- CLASSIC MARGARITA $5
FRIDAY- SANGRIA $5
