It is all good. Great place to be as you feel you are in Mexico. Food is cheap, plentiful and service is great. It does get real busy so be patient.

Great authentic Mexican cuisine. Yes the place does leave a bit to be desired in the decor department but who cares the food is delicious. We were a party of five who each ordered different items - chicken, beef, vegetarian, etc and everyone loved their meals. The staff served efficiently and with a smile. Everything was very clean in the... More

I went here with my aunt. We love to get together and enjoy good Mexican. We ordered the choriqueso to start. I believe they make their own chorizo. It was very flavourful. I ordered 4 tacos (al pastor, alambre de pollo and carnitas). My aunt ordered the Pozole Rojo. She said ti was delicious. All were authentically tasting. I am... More

..Time and time again. It's our go-to place when we don't want to make dinner at home; it's always the first place that comes to mind. We have never been disappointed by our food, they usually have good specials on, and often times, they have a live band playing! They just renovated so the restaurant is much bigger now (although...

Don't let the mish-mash of the decor deter you. Very lucky to find a quiet night at Taqueria Playa Tropical with a great table and great view of all the activity on 6th street. The food tastes fresh, like cilantro just picked and best of all, each portion is too much for one person. The Coctel De Camaron is best... More

Sure, this place isn't the nicest looking but that's what adds to its character! Food is AMAZING. Everything I try is excellent and not overly greasy like you find at other Mexican places. Service is decent considering how busy it is. Love the green salsa and the little tacos. Prices are very fair.

I haven't had Mexican food this good since I lived in Texas. Authentic low key atmosphere with a live band singing in Spanish. We had a great appetizer, Choriqueso, which is spicy chorizo meat with cheese and chips, excellent! My daughter and I had Flautas, deep fried corn tortillas with chicken, topped with guacamole. Her boyfriend had a burrito special.... More

Pretty good food though the guacamole was not great . I had the chicken enchilada and enjoyed it a lot . The room however was uncomfortable . The unpadded chairs seem calculated to prevent you staying very long . Service was not good as the place was understaffed . Price was good . Probably better for lunch .

the food is freshly prepared and of excellent quality. The restaurant recently expanded and we find the atmosphere a little plain for our taste. It is extremely popular, however and beside the food we can attribute that to a live band that gives lively music. Been there a few times and will contine to go when I want a quick... More
