This was a Friday evening and the place was very busy. The Salsa was very bland with little or no seasoning. Meals were delivered very quickly and service was very good., I had a chicken and steak fritada. There was very little vegetables, (pepper and onions etc) in the dish. The taste was fine. The retried beans were very thin... More

I'm always disappointed when I come here. The food is beyond poor. Don't expect it to be authentic Mexican. I don't think there is any really good places in Pikeville to get Mexican. Maybe a chain should come to town?!?

We've eaten here a few times in both locations. Very fast service, good food, fair prices! Everyone in Pikeville seems to like this restaurant.

The restaurant needs a clean up. Food is average, but the margaritas are good. The outside looks bad because the back of the building is very ugly and junky like the town.

This restaurant is always dependable for a good meal. Serves the usual Mexican fare but with better quality than most. The service also sets it apart. The waiters respond quickly to any need and the restaurant always appears clean and neat. Price is average but you always come away feeling you got your money's worth. Would highly reccomend.

I was in Pikeville on business for awhile. I ate here about 3 times a week. The food was that great!! The menu has a lot of options, and the restaurant is always fully staffed which makes service very quick. I ordered something different every time, and I was never disappointed. Their Queso Fundido is a must try! I also... More

You wouldn't expect there to be a great Mexican restaurant in Pikeville, Kentucky, but El Azul is surprisingly good. I got the queso dip and steak fajita's. Both were tasty. If you find yourself in Pikeville, visit this place and enjoy.
