According to a sign posted on their door, Azteca (2319 NW Market St) is closing its doors for good at the end of February. The sign (pictured) points to their lease ending as the reason for the restaurant closure.
Azteca has been a fixture of Market Street for 40 years, and although the restaurant has franchised since then, the Ballard location has been the longest in operation.
The restaurant has been owned and operated by the Ramos family since its opening and the family wishes to “thank the Ballard community for 40 years of incredible support.”
Azteca is set to go out with a bang tomorrow night with a DJ and dance party until 2 a.m. Check out the Ballard Azteca Facebook page for more details.
