Best Mexican Food outside of Mexico

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.

This is my "go to" place for lunch. I'm here at least twice a week. I don't know of any other lunch destination I can have a drink, chips, and salsa in less than ten minutes. Fastest service around and the servers are top notch. Food quality is always consistently great.

You always get impeccable service here. Very fast if you're in a hurry for lunch or something like that. Everything here is good. My favorite is the fajitas or pollo bandido!!

With the exception of the salsa,the rest of the meal was great. Nice guacamole, shrimp fajitas, tortilla chips, etc. The restaurant is always busy because it is good quality and high value, and fast.
